Our expert made a prediction for the match of the 24th round of the Premier League between “Everton” and “Newcastle” that will take place on January 21.
Everton with Ancelotti plays more solidly, but pragmatically, especially at home. Two 1-0 wins over Burnley and Brighton. Most likely, the owners need a result here now, so somewhere they have to sacrifice entertainment and win 1-0, in the last round, they failed to break even against the playing “West Ham” top (1: 1). Everton will slow down in its attacking potential due to the absence of Richardson and Iwobi.
In the first game, Toffee won 2-1, but it was Newcastle at home. Away “magpies” always play the second number strictly, not thinking about attack.
“Newcastle” after another recession (four matches without a victory), finally won in the last round. That was connected with the return of two main centers, Shelvey and Saint-Maximin, and a little luck. The winning goal “Magpies” scored in the 94th minute. It’s hard to talk about the subject of Newcastle’s playing style for a long time; everything is clear there – defense.
Everton’s positional attack is underdeveloped to break teams in black and white. Therefore, we expect a boring, vicious game with low amounts of goals.
Our prediction: Total Under (2,5)
