Everton Missing Key Men
The Merseysiders looked a shadow of themselves last weekend and without their new talisman it could be a struggle again.
We’ll learn a bit about what Everton are made of at St James’s Park after a first defeat of the season, and with several key men missing - Richarlison, Rodriguez, Digne and Coleman. They didn’t look like scoring at Southampton and we’re backing a draw here with under 2.5 goals in the match at best odds of 16/5 with PaddyPower.
While it’s hard to see the Toffees winning, especially without their playmaker, it’s hard to get excited about Newcastle either. The Toon Army have had the fewest shots on target in the Premier League this season, and have only won 1 of their last 7 on their own patch.
When these sides last met it somehow ended 2-2 last after the Magpies scored in the 94th and 95th minute. The outcome could be similar here, but with fewer goals and most likely, less drama.
