Newcastle look to bounce back from a defeat to Manchester United when they host Everton in St James Park in the late kick off . The magpies played pretty well in Old Trafford despite the 3-1 score line. But for some dodgy refereeing Newcastle could well have had a first half penalty and possibly a man advantage. Cisse and Sissokho along with Ayoze Perez are the key trio for Newcastle Pardew has decided against starting both Perez and Cisse on away trip but perhaps he will throw them upfront tomorrow against an Everton side that are struggling defensively. St James Park will be hoping tomorrow and Newcastle have won four of five at home in recent weeks including beating Chelsea, the first team to do so this season in any competition.
Everton come into this game off a bad loss at home to Stoke, not only was this a poor result for Roberto Martinez team but they lost Tim Howard and Phil Jagielka to injury and Steben Naismith to a fifth booking of the year. That means Everton will have Roble in goals behind a makeshift defence, not exactly what you want facing into a tough away trip. Naismith was Everton's best player at the weekend and with Mirallas also struggling for full fitness this is a game that could get away from the toffees very easily.
I am taking Newcastle straight up here, at 19/10 this is one of my favourite bets of the day. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
