Newcastle extended their run of defeats to three matches after losing 3-1 at Old Trafford following their last minute derby defeat to Sunderland in their most recent home fixture. Newcastle have now gone six matches without being able to keep a clean sheet which is the second longest streak behind their Sunday opponents Everton. Newcastle have taken just 4 points from their last six matches in the Premier League but have managed 13 points from their last six home matches. Newcastle have lost five of their last six matches played at home between Christmas and New Year (W1 L5). Newcastle are currently the most injury stricken side in the Premier League with 11 players carrying injury ahead of this match.
Possible Line ups
Everton failed to score at home for just the second time this season as they lost 1-0 to Stoke City during a grim Boxing Day fixture in their last outing in the Premier League. The Toffees are on a run of eight matches without a clean sheet in the league which is more than any other side. Ahead of this match, Everton have won just one of their last seven Premier League away fixtures (W1 D2 L4) having lost on all of their last three trips. Everton have a good record in the North East losing just two of their last 15 visits to Middlesbrough, Newcastle and Sunderland (W8 D5 L2) as well as winning three of their last 5 matches at St James' Park. Steven Naismith will be suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Stoke City.
Statistics & Injuries
Alan Pardew and Roberto Martinez have faced each other eight times in their managerial careers and none of their meetings have resulted in a draw. Both managers have managed four wins in these fixtures with Martinez winning four of the last five. Martinez's sides have picked up 16 yellow cards over the eight matches compared to Pardew's 12. There have been two red cards over that period, both to players under Roberto Martinez. Current Swansea manager Garry Monk was red carded in the first ever meeting whilst Maynor Figueroa has also seen red.
Let's just win for fuck sake.
