Premier League form table ahead of Everton v Newcastle
The Premier League form table ahead of Newcastle United taking on Everton.
The blue half of Merseyside were only seconds away from a third clean sheet in a row and a very good point, only for Jordan Pickford to let in a nightmare goal.
Marco Silva typically plays attacking football but he has really tightened things up at the back for Everton.
Only four club have conceded fewer goals than the scousers, whereas last season only five clubs conceded more than Everton.
In terms of the Premier League form table, Everton are sixth (the same as their overall PL position) with three wins and a draw in their last six games.
This is exactly the same as Newcastle who lost to West Ham but the defeat at Man Utd dropped off their six game form guide.
For Newcastle, Rafa Benitez is no doubt telling his player to focus on the fact this was a first defeat in five games and after a run of three wins, it is simply a case of getting back to the disciplined team play that brought an upturn in form.
Everton have picked up 16 of their 22 points at home and the only defeat at Goodison was a 3-1 loss to West Ham, which followed straight on from a home draw against Huddersfield. Snce then though they have won their last four PL home matches.
Newcastle have a poor record at Everton in recent times but whilst they have only beaten Burnley away this season, they have only lost away to the two Manchester team, conceding only six goals in the six matches on their travels.
Needless to say, Rafa would no doubt take a point now if he was offered it, especially as next up is Wolves at St James Park, the visitors with the joint worst form in the PL, with five defeats and one draw in their last six.
