Newcastle United vs Everton: Carlo Ancelotti is looking to build a positive return to the Premier League when he travels with Everton for a tough game in Newcastle.
Steve Bruce’s men have been quite consistent at home this season and could be a handful for Everton. Meanwhile, the h2h statistic suggests that it is anyone’s game.
We cannot literally ignore Newcastle’s distinctions at home this season and that is why we point to a double chance in favor of the hosts. It is true that Everton is an improved team since the dismissal of Marco Silva.
Visitors have the service of an experienced coach at Ancelotti, but he had very little time to take a look at the team or perfect tactics. It’s hard to expect a drastic change from this team, which has had problems along the way this season.
Even so, we can see a little bit of visitor visitor style and that is why we expect goals at both ends. Teams may have difficulty maintaining their level of concentration in cold climates, as assemblies will soon be carried out.
A solitary second half of Dominic Calvert-Lewin was enough for Everton to secure a solid victory against a tough Burnley team in a winning streak of two games by the same margin.
Duncan Ferguson stabilized the ship at Goodison Park and the team took 5 points from the previous three before Ancelotti took over the day after Christmas.
Everton is now on an unbeaten run of four games in the Premier League (2W, 2D) and is looking to extend the race to a field that has had some success in recent seasons.
Newcastle United was humiliated at Old Trafford in a 1-4 loss the day after Christmas, despite an early lead. However, they will be in a good mood for the commotion on Saturday with St. James Park, which will go to their fortress this season.
Since the 0-1 loss to Arsenal on the first day, the Magpies have accumulated points in each home game (4W, 4D); including a dead end against Man City and a 1-0 victory against United.
It is obvious that Newcastle is a hard nut to break in its own backyard and it remains to be seen if Everton can end this streak with his new confidence.
