Newcastle United vs Everton Prediction
Newcastle United are currently sixth in the league, and have won two of their last five league games. However, Eddie Howe's men have lost only one game in the league so far, and are one point behind fifth-placed Manchester United, who have a game in hand.
Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimaraes has arguably been Newcastle United's best player this season, and the 24-year old is reportedly attracting interest from Real Madrid as a result. Players like Kieran Trippier and Joelinton have also been impressive this season.
Everton, on the other hand, are 14th in the league and have also won two of their last five league games. Only two points separate Everton from 18th-placed Southampton, and despite praise being directed towards Frank Lampard for stabilizing the ship at Everton, issues remain.
Everton's defense has done well this season, with summer acquisitions Conor Coady and James Tarkowski immediately forming a rock-solid centre-back partnership. The return of defensive midfielder Idrissa Gueye after a stint with Paris Saint-Germain has also helped, while Belgian midfielder Amadou Onana is already a fan favorite among the Everton faithful.
Newcastle United have enjoyed a good start to their league campaign, despite missing stars like Alexander Isak and Allan Saint-Maximin due to injuries. They should be able to emerge victorious here.
