PREDICTION
Newcastle are without a win in seven Premier League matches and next up they face an Everton side who are going through something of a resurgence since the appointment of Sam Allardyce as manager. The Toffees earned a point in the Merseyside derby on Sunday and should have enough to earn three more on Tyneside.

MEMORABLE MEETING
The 2014 festive period would have brought some cheer to Newcastle fans as they witnessed their side earn maximum points when hosting Everton at St James' Park. This entertaining clash saw no fewer than five goals as the Magpies edged proceedings, winning the game by three goals to two.
