Newcastle United faces Everton on Sunday, November 1st at St. James' Park for an English Premier League match.
Newcastle United is coming off a 1-1 draw to Wolverhampton on the road in its last match on October 25th. Newcastle United is now 2-2-2 on the year, which puts the club in 14th place in the Premier League standings. The table right now is very tight, as teams 6-14 are within three points of each other. That being said, each club still has a ton of time to make up some ground and climb the standings. Newcastle United has won two of its last four matches and has only lost one of its past five overall matches as well. Newcastle United has scored eight goals so far this season, and the club has conceded 10 goals to its opposition for a -2 goal differential thus far. Newcastle United will look to take down the current leaders in the Premier League in what should be a very difficult match for Newcastle.
Everton is coming off its first loss of the season to Southampton on the road by the final score of 2-0. Everton was down 2-0 by halftime of that match and down a man by the 72nd minute as Lucas Digne was sent off with a red card. Everton is now 4-1-1, and as stated before is still in first place in the Premier League standings with 13 points. Everton has now earned its first draw and loss of the season after a perfect 4-0-0 start, so it will be interesting to see if the club can bounce back at St. James' Park. Everton has scored 14 goals and has allowed nine goals to start the season with a +5 goal differential.
The last time Newcastle United and Everton met was on January 21st of 2020. In that match, the two teams earned a 2-2 draw at St. James' Park.
I think both teams are going to score in this match, but I do think there will be a winning side. The best play for that scenario is on the over 2.5.
