Newcastle and The Toffees are desperate for points to escape the bottom parts of the table. The teams clash on Tuesday at St James' Park with a lot riding on the outcome in this Premier League relegation battle. The last time, the two teams faced off against each other, Newcastle ran out 2-0 winners. In was a match played at Goodison Park back in January 2021 in the Premier League.

With 19 points after 20 games, Everton currently lie on the 16th place in the Premier League standings. Newcastle play catch-up as they recorded 15 points in 21 matches and they rank as number 19 before their upcoming clash.

Following some poor performances in this Premier League campaign recently, The Magpies desperately need some points from the match against Everton to get on track.

The Magpies go into their next Premier League match, averaging a humble 0.9 goals per game in their last 10 matches in which they scored a mundane total of nine goals, while also conceding 19 goals. That amounts to an average of 1.9 per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring twice.

The unsatisfactory results in the recent Premier League rounds have left morale in tatters with The Toffees. A win on Tuesday against The Magpies could be key to turning the tide again.

Everton are currently performing rather modestly, when it comes to goal-scoring, as the visitors on Tuesday managed a bearable eight goals in the past 10 outings. That is an average of 0.8 goals a game, in which their opponents scored a total of 19 goals. They claimed one clean sheet as they averaged 1.9 against per match.

Match Prediction

Looking at the goalscorer market, it seems to be a good idea to side with Jonjo Shelvey. He is one of the Magpies players, who are showing decent form right now. He managed to find the back of the net two times in his most recent outing. Surely, he will want to add more goals against Everton and improve his goal-to-game ratio. The visitors will be looking to in-form Richarlison to find the net once again, as he has been their main man recently. Richarlison netted two goals for Everton in his last six games, and so he should definitely be a goalscorer to have in mind for this match.
