Everton v Newcastle: Odds, predictions, team news & how to watch

Precious away wins at Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest have boosted Everton's survival prospects, but it's home wins that have eluded Sean Dyche's Premier League strugglers.

They would love to secure just a second home win of the season but know it will be a tough task against high-flying Newcastle United, who are buzzing after beating Manchester United at the weekend.

Bet Builder - 8/1

Martin Dubravka over 2.5 saves - 5/6

Martin Dubravka will replace Nick Pope between the Newcastle sticks at Goodison Park after the England keeper picked up an injury at the weekend, and the Slovak veteran can expect to be busy.

The 34-year-old will be making just his second Premier League start in 18 months after coming off the bench in Saturday's 1-0 win over Manchester United.

He's a reliable goalkeeper who will earn his keep against an Everton side with a reputation for creating chances but not taking many.

Everton go into this midweek round of games sitting 18th in the table following their points deduction and joint 17th in the goals scored table.

Yet in the standings for shots taken, Everton are seventh, averaging 14.5 shots per game, more than the likes of Brighton, Chelsea and Newcastle.

Clearly their problem is they don't take many - just 15 goals scored - and it's a problem Sean Dyche is struggling to address. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is a handful but just not clinical enough while Beto cuts a hugely frustrating figure.

In Everton's last home game against Manchester United, the man of the match, according to most judges, was the visiting keeper Andre Onana, who was forced to make six saves.

The Toffees will be positive and get their shots off and Dubravka to make at least three saves looks a really solid platform for the Bet Builder.

Under 6 Newcastle corners - 8/13

Newcastle are 5/4 to win at Goodison which looks short enough for a side who have won just once in the Premier League away from home this season, and that was at bottom club Sheffield United.

They are clearly a very decent team, good enough to be playing in the Champions League, but it's evident their best work is done at St James' Park rather than on the road.

And for the purposes of this Bet Builder, one way to illustrate that would be to make one leg under six Newcastle corners.

The statistics are emphatic. The Toon have played ten away matches in all competitions this season, winning just 33 corners, or 3.3 per game.

In only two of those ten games have they piled up six or more, one of which was that 8-0 win at Sheffield United, which was little more than a training exercise.

Injuries are biting on Tyneside and the swagger of that night at Bramall Lane, and others like it, are less likely to be repeated, especially in the midst of a packed fixture schedule and against an Everton team who will be super-competitive.

Idrissa Gueye over 2.5 tackles - 5/4

The engine room pairing of Idrissa Gueye and James Garner worked a treat at the City Ground on Saturday evening, with Everton winning 1-0.

Gueye was more combative than creative and the Senegalese ace will have to bear his teeth once again with Newcastle the visitors.

He put in two tackles against Forest, having totted up three a week earlier at home to Manchester United.

Gueye has made 26 tackles in 11 appearances this season (10 starts) and with Newcastle almost bound to dominate possession at Goodison, his bite in midfield will be critical.

Everton Team News

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, ruled out at Forest with a minor calf problem, should be back to lead the line.

Sean Dyche has options at right-back to prevent 38-year-old Ashley Young playing three times in a week, with Nathan Patterson and fit-again Seamus Coleman standing by.

Dele Alli and Andre Gomes are expected to miss out again and the game might come too soon for Amadou Onana.

Newcastle Team News

England keeper Nick Pope is the latest Magpies' casualty having been ruled out for four months with a dislocated shoulder, with Martin Dubravka ready to step in.

He joins a host of absentees, including regulars Dan Burn, Sven Botman, Harvey Barnes and Callum Wilson, although Eddie Howe is hopeful Toffees old boy Anthony Gordon is fit to feature.
