Newcastle United host Everton on Wednesday, hoping for a much better outcome than Saturday’s 125th anniversary celebrations against Leicester City.

The North-East club lost 3-2 despite going ahead after just four minutes and are now seven games without a win.

Things won’t get much easier on Wednesday, playing a resurgent Toffees side who unexpectedly picked up a point at Anfield on Sunday.

Everton have yet to be on the losing side under Sam Allardyce, even winning away at Apollon Limassol in the Europa League.
