It will be interesting to see what the pundits predict for the game tomorrow at home to Everton.
Newcastle need to put in a good display and get a decent result after the disappointment of being beaten 2-0 last Saturday at West Ham.
The Hammers looked the better side in that game and curtailed our front three of Almiron, Rondon, and Perez.
Paul Merson thinks there will be lots of goals in this game and is predicting a 2-2 draw.
Paul Merson – predicts a 2-2 draw tomorrow
This is how Paul summed up the game on Sky Sports:
“Everton have set a standard now. They kept a clean sheet against Liverpool and didn’t really look like letting in a goal.”
“It wasn’t like the goalie was man of the match, he made a couple of saves but nothing big.”
“Newcastle will be strong at home with their front three and I think Everton will relax away from home and have a go so I’m going for plenty of goals.”
Unfortunately, we have Sean Longstaff out for the rest of the season with his knee ligament injury.
But he should be ready for preseason in early July.
We suspect that Ki will be brought in to start in his place – but ti could also be Mo Diame who needs three more starts to get an automatic one-year extension to his contract.
But he wants a two-year deal to stay at Newcastle.
