Newcastle United will host Everton in its mid-week clash, as the team resumes its Premier League 2021-22 schedule after the international break.
Newcastle has made good use of the transfer window, and splurged on some key players, as it looks to avoid relegation to the second tier. While the team did win its last encounter before the break, against Leeds United, it was just the second victory for them this season. This poor run has put them in 19th place in the points table, with just 15 points so far. However, they trail 17th placed Norwich by just 1 point, and a win in this game will help Eddie Howe move above the dotted line.
Everton, on the other hand, has had a miserable recent run in the Premier League 2021-22 season, losing 4 out of its last 5 games. They will however find some solace from the 4-1 win against Brentford in its last outing at the FA Cup, which saw them advance to the 5th round. This will be Frank Lampard's first game in the Premier League as Everton manager, and his first goal will be to stop the 3 game losing streak. Everton currently is at 16th place on the points table, just 4 points clear of the relegation zone.
The best football betting sites are offering odds that are quite similar for both sides to win this match. This indicates we could be in for a close encounter.
Match prediction and betting tips for Newcastle United F. C. vs Everton F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at St. James’ Park, Newcastle upon Tyne, on 8th February 2022.
Newcastle has strengthened its midfield and defense by bringing in the likes of Bruno Guimaraes, Matt Targett, and Dan Burn. The team has also bolstered its offense by bringing in New Zealand striker Chris Wood from Burnley, who will be sharing scoring responsibilities with Jonjo Shelvey. The team may however have to do without the services of Callum Wilson, Federico Fernandez, and Isaac Hayden. Jamaal Lascelles, Paul Dummett and Joelinton for this match.
For the visitors, Ben Godfrey, who suffered a hamstring injury against Brentford, is unlikely to travel, and so are Fabian Delph, Abdoulaye Doucoure, and Tom Davies.
We expect both the teams to score, but with the recent signings, Newcastle may just scrape through and collect three important points to move out of the relegation zone.
Bet on Newcastle to win.
There are so many more moving parts involved in this contest than otherwise normal. Newcastle has added a number of high-quality players to its squad but integrating them into the mix is going to take some time. Everton has a new manager and he will also need a bit of time to settle into his role and effecting the kind of football Everton plays.
One thing that we have learned is that whenever there are so many changes, errors are bound to occur, and that means goals. We think both teams will find the back of the net at least once and that is more then enough to help us win this bet.
