Merson predicts who is going to win on Thursday evening… Everton or Newcastle.

After a week of glamour ties, Newcastle United are preparing for a different kind of challenge against an enraged Everton.

The Magpies head to Merseyside this week after wins against Chelsea and Manchester United and a draw with Paris Saint-Germain – which really should have been a win as well.

Eddie Howe’s side took on three elite teams and held their ground, despite still being in the midst of an injury crisis.

And things have only gotten worse ahead of Everton, with Nick Pope now sidelined with a shoulder injury.

That is another issue for Newcastle to contest with as they prepare to head to Goodison Park – a ground that they excelled at last season. Howe’s side won 4-1, on a night where Alexander Isak produced a moment of real magic.

While the table says otherwise, Everton are in better shape nowadays. Sean Dyche is doing well, and they only find themselves in the bottom three because of that 10-point deduction that has enraged the Toffees faithful.

That could lead to an intense atmosphere on Thursday night, and it is one that Newcastle must manage.

Paul Merson thinks the Magpies will do just that, and is backing them to make it a hat-trick of Premier League victories at Everton’s expense.
