Everton’s lost two-straight since going unbeaten in seven across all competitions, but those losses were to Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
The Toffees ended a four-match winless run against Newcastle the last time these two met up, and could use a win on Wednesday for breathing room above the bottom three.

Key storylines & star players
Newcastle had been buzzing along in attack until last week, when the scoreless draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford showed the strength of its defense. Look for Sven Botman and goalkeeper Nick Pope to get more and more praise alongside Kieran Trippier as the season moves along toward the World Cup.
Everton’s star has been Alex Iwobi, who may well stand alongside Mason Mount as the most impressive player development under Frank Lampard in the manager’s young career.
