Everton vs Newcastle Prediction & Match Preview

Everton vs Newcastle United
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Goodison Park.

After sharing the spoils with Vardy-less Leicester on Wednesday evening, Everton will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they host Newcastle United at their Goodison Park. 

James Rodriguez scored his fourth goal of the season in the midweek clash, and, no doubt, he is going to prove a handful for Newcastle defenders. 

The likes of Allan, Delph, Gbamin, and Nkounkou are all likely to miss the game with injuries.

The Magpies, on the other hand, have been struggling in the Premier League in 2021, with the team losing each of their previous five league fixtures. 

Newcastle are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s clash. 

The likes of Fernandez, Clark, and Dummett are all out of contention through injuries ahead of the trip to Liverpool.

Team News:

Everton will again be without the services of Allan, Fabian Delph, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Niels Nkounkou on Saturday afternoon through injury.

Abdoulaye Doucoure is available following a one-match suspension, though, and the midfielder is expected to return to the starting XI at the expense of Andre Gomes.

Ancelotti could also recall Alex Iwobi, with Lucas Digne dropping back to the left-back spot, but there are not expected to be many surprises, with Richarlison, Rodriguez and Dominic Calvert-Lewin all likely to feature.

As for Newcastle, Paul Dummett, Federico Fernandez and DeAndre Yedlin will again be unavailable, but Ciaran Clark has a chance of overcoming a calf problem in time for the contest.

Allan Saint-Maximin is pushing for a start, having appeared off the bench against Leeds, but Bruce could ultimately decide to select an unchanged XI for the contest.

As a result, Jacob Murphy and Miguel Almiron might keep their spots in the wide positions with Ryan Fraser being tasked with supporting lone forward and leading scorer Callum Wilson.

Javi Manquillo, Dwight Gayle and Andy Carroll are among the options for change, but Newcastle actually had 22 shots against Leeds, and there were signs of progress despite another loss.

Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Holgate, Mina, Keane, Digne; Doucoure, Davies; Iwobi, Rodriguez, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin

Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Darlow; Hayden, Lascelles, Schar, Lewis; Murphy, Shelvey, Hendrick, Almiron; Fraser; Wilson
