Newcastle United vs Everton
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 1 November 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: St. James’ Park.
Newcastle United are set to welcome Everton to St. James’ Park on Sunday in their next English Premier League fixture.
Newcastle United come into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolverhampton Wanderers last Sunday at the Molineux Stadium.
A goal from Mexico international Raul Jimenez for Wolves was cancelled out by a late Jacob Murphy strike for Newcastle United in what was a drab encounter.
Ten-man Everton, on the other hand, lost 2-0 to Southampton last Sunday at the St. Mary’s Stadium.
Goals from captain and England international James Ward-Prowse and attacker Che Adams secured an impressive victory for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men.
To add to their misery, Everton had left-back Lucas Digne sent off in the second half.

Newcastle vs Everton: Prediction
Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United are not renowned for their attacking and expansive style of football. The addition of players like Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser has improved their attack. With Allan Saint-Maximin yet to hit peak form this season, the Magpies, on paper, have a good team for Bruce to work with this season.
Everton, on the other hand, began the season in impressive fashion, but have endured a dip in form in their last two league games. The absence of Lucas Digne and Richarlison could prove to be crucial, while it remains to be seen whether key midfielder James Rodriguez is fit for this game.
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti would like to ensure that the Toffees’ slump in form doesn’t continue. Despite crucial personnel missing, Everton should be able to emerge victorious against Newcastle United.
Prediction: Newcastle United 0-2 Everton
