You've really got to feel for Newcastle United at the moment, who just can't seem to take a trick in the 2012/13 English Premier League season.
Already crippled by a number of injuries, the Magpies have scored three goals in their last two league matches this year—all for no points—losing 4-3 and 7-3 respectively over their past two matches.
What's more, is both came away from home against quality sides—Manchester United and Arsenal respectively. To score three goals, away from home, against those sides really has to hurt for Alan Pardew's men at the moment as they head back home to St. James' Park for this week's fixture.
The Magpies will take on Everton, who dropped out of the top four with a loss at home to Chelsea last weekend. The Merseyside club will be looking to improve on that here, and with just two losses from their last 17 league matches, are no doubt a definite chance at stealing all three points in this one.
Can Newcastle get over the heartbreak and disappointment of the past two weeks with a home win here, or will the Toffees ruin their parade with a strong and commanding performance away from home?
