Everton are fast running out of time to salvage their Premier League status, and they will run into a buoyant Newcastle at Goodison Park on Thursday evening.
A goalless draw in their last outing against Crystal Palace leaves Everton marooned in the bottom three, a point off Leicester, but their goal difference is extremely worrying (-22).

Newcastle, in the meantime, are coming off the back of one of their most impressive results of the season, dispatching Tottenham with consummate ease last weekend in a rampant 6-1 victory.
Eddie Howe’s charges are third in the table, and they appear to be well primed for Champions League football, something that few on Tyneside would have thought would be scarcely believable before the start of the season.
There is also an interesting sub plot to this fixture, with Anthony Gordon returning to Merseyside as a Magpie since his controversial exit in January.
This match is huge for Everton, but can they come away with all three points? We have cast a glance over the latest odds and unearthed a couple of tips for you to take into account ahead of kick-off.
Newcastle to make light work of Everton
As mentioned, Howe has performed miracles this season, and a top-four spot is well within grasp.
The Tottenham result of course was colossal given the context of the campaign, but there have been some great days on the road.
Of course, there have also been some horror shows, such as the 3-0 reverse away to Aston Villa earlier this month, but the Magpies have had a habit of bouncing back.
Everton, meanwhile, are on the precipice of disaster, although perhaps they will take solace from the fact they have a good record against Newcastle, losing just one of their six league encounters.
Earlier this term, Newcastle shaded things with a 1-0 win at St. James’ Park and I fancy them to complete a league double over the Toffees. For my first pick, I have gone with Newcastle to win by a margin of two goals, a price that is available at 4/1 with bet365.
Callum Wilson to weave his magic
Of those that have come to the fore over the past few months, Callum Wilson has produced some standout performances.
He is a tricky customer, and he’s just one goal short of equalling his best return for Newcastle in a single campaign (12).
He has hit a bit of a purple patch of late, netting four times in his past five league encounters, and he could well get on the scoresheet against Everton.
Wilson has also chipped in with four assists this campaign, and for my second pick, I have gone with a special which is for Wilson to score and give an assist. Should you wish to follow up on that, Unibet is pricing him at an inviting 18/1 for him to do so.
