Everton will face Newcastle United in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Everton will win against Newcastle United on Wednesday evening.

Everton will take on the Magpies at Goodison Park in the Premier League, and former Newcastle striker Owen has backed the home team to pick up all three points from the encounter.

The Magpies have spent a lot of money in the Transfer Window and Andros Townsend is likely to make his debut at Goodison,” the former Liverpool and Manchester United striker wrote on Betvictor.com.

“The Blues have only kept one clean sheet in their 11 PL games so far this term and only Villa (8) have won fewer points from the last 30 available than Everton (9). I expect to see goals at Goodison in a massive game for both clubs.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Everton to win and both teams to score at 21/10.”

Everton are 12th in the Premier League table at the moment with 29 points from 23 matches.

The Toffees are having a disappointing season and currently find themselves just eight points above the relegation zone.

The Merseyside outfit will head into the game against Newcastle on the back of a 3-0 victory over Carlisle United in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are third from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with 21 points from 23 matches.

Steve McClaren’s side are two points behind 17th-placed Norwich City and are in real danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.

The Magpies will head into the game against Everton on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Watford away from home at Vicarage Road in the league.
