Newcastle United will look to make it three Premier League wins in a row when they travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton on Thursday.
Eddie Howe’s side remain ravaged by injury but have still managed to register impressive wins against Chelsea and Manchester United in recent weeks.
An away win against Everton will help maintain pressure on the top four and the Magpies will be hoping to continue their impressive recent record against the Merseyside club which has seen them lose only once in their last five games.
Sean Dyche’s side, however, have only lost one of their last five league games and bounced back impressively from their defeat to Manchester United with an important 1-0 away win against Nottingham Forest.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the clash at Goodison Park.

Everton will be hoping to welcome back Dominic Calvert-Lewin after he missed out on the weekend’s game against Nottingham Forest with a calf injury. The striker has returned to training and could be chucked straight back into the starting XI. Amadou Onana, Dele Ali and Andre Gomes remain unavailable.
Newcastle, meanwhile, saw their lengthy injury list only increase last weekend, with the club confirming that Nick Pope will have to undergo shoulder surgery and will likely miss four months of action. Anthony Gordon is also a doubt after the winger was substituted following his winner against Manchester United. 12 other players remain unavailable for Howe.
Everton XI: Pickford, Young, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko, Harrison, Garner, Gueye, McNeil, Doucoure, Calvert-Lewin.
Newcastle XI: Dubravka, Trippier, Lascelles, Schar, Livramento, Miley, Guimaraes, Joelinton, Almiron, Isak, Gordon.
Everton win 21/10
Newcastle win 5/4

Even such a depleted Newcastle squad has shown their quality in recent weeks and their momentum should continue on Thursday against an Everton side that have struggled to find the same consistency of performance.
