Everton to Put Derby Day Defeat Behind them as They Look to Smash Newcastle
Fresh from a 96th-minute derby defeat, Everton will head into their home game vs Newcastle with a good squad. Despite their loss vs Liverpool at the weekend, the Toffees will be confident of taking points at home against the Magpies. The Toffees have won 8 of the last 10 EPL games against Newcastle and Silva’s attacking style should see that run continue.
Newcastle will be missing Matt Ritchie through suspension. However, they will be buoyed by the return of skipper Jamaal Lascelles. In the absence of Ritchie, Newcastle will likely revert to three at the back, this system worked well vs Burnley and could be the answer to some of their defensive problems.
Everton are the more complete of the two sides, and I believe that now Silva has them playing his way, they will have too much for Newcastle.
Result Prediction: Everton Win
Score Prediction: 2-0 or over 1.5 goals
