Newcastle United and Everton will be looking to bounce back to winning ways in Premier League when they face off at St James’ Park on Wednesday night. Newcastle drew 0-0 with Man United at Old Trafford last time out. The draw saw them extend their unbeaten run to five matches now in the top flight, but it ended their two-match winning streak. With the side targeting the European places this season, they look to quickly return to winning ways on Wednesday. The Magpies sit sixth on 15 points from 10 games, four points outside the top four places and two above Bournemouth in 10th. Meanwhile, Everton are coming off a 2-0 away defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. The defeat made it back-to-back defeat for the Toffees in the top-flight as they were previously coming off a 2-1 home loss to Man United. The defeats ended Everton’s six-match unbeaten run in the top flight and seen them drop to 14th place in the league standings, with just two points above the relegation zone. Therefore, Everton will be looking to bounce back to winning ways on Wednesday, but they need to raise their game levels if there are to come away with anything from the clash.
