Everton host Newcastle at Goodison Park with both sides almost certainly assured of their Premier League status next season. Newcastle go into this one in the better form, winning three from the last four, with the Toffees failing to register a league victory in any of their last three outings.
However, our Everton v Newcastle match stats show that Everton have the better record in these meetings, winning each of the last four and seven out of the last eight against the Magpies.
Such has been Everton’s dominance in this fixture in recent seasons that they’ve won each of the last four without conceding a goal.
Our Everton v Newcastle stats have shown us, though, that in three of the last four games between the two, Newcastle have had a player sent off. Yellows and reds have been a feature in this fixture, with three reds and 20 yellows shown in the last six meetings.
Ayoze Perez has been in good form for the Magpies of late, scoring three in three. The striker is good value to score anytime in this one too.
Everton v Newcastle Stats
Everton have a decent home record this season, winning just over half of their games at Goodison so far. However, they’ve conceded almost as many as they’ve scored on home turf.
Whilst this may have an ‘end-of-season’ feel to it, there’s still plenty of opportunities to make profit. For those of you who like betting on Half-Time/Full-Time markets or First Half Goals, an interesting Everton v Newcastle match stat is that there has only been more than one goal scored in the first half of play in one of the last six meetings.
Talking of goals, at Goodison Park the last five meetings have seen 19 goals, though Newcastle have only contributed five to that total.
Newcastle have only won four away games this season, though they were victorious on their last trip away from St James’ Park, a 2-1 win at Leicester.
A win for either side could go a long way into cementing a top half finish.
