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.

Here is the Premier League form table which covers the past six matches for all teams:

    Serious question…

    Alan Shearer is 48 years old, but he still keeps in shape and plays occasional charity games.

    Would you rather have him or Joselu on the bench?

    • Kenny

      Just stick Big Al in the box, he won`t miss

  • LA toon

    We have nothing to offer in the final 3rd and will therefore park the bus to go for a 0-0 draw. However considering our defensive performance on Saturday a loss is on the books. Are we looking forward to another 11 years of this type of performance? # Boycott Wolves.

    • Themoscow72

      What good will that do. Counter productive . Chance of 3 points but the protesters want us relegated pathetic supporters.

      • Kenny

        Perez may bounce back to form & miss 3 chances instead of 6

  • Toon

    We’ll be lucky to get anything – however all attending NUFC fans remained seated while the ball is in play or your movement may distract our back 4 and lead to us conceding, it cost us against West Ham and it could again

    • Kenny

      watched the game last night, Everton were very unlucky

      • Leazes.

        Pickford was hilarious…..

        • Kenny

          Man U touted to pay £70m for him

          • Rich Lawson

            He’s not worth that (yet),I think they will give in to De Gea’s wage demands to keep him (specially with Jose having the same agent) ?

  • Themoscow72

    1800 loyal fans making the journey a week after going to Burnley no doubt mostly the same people. Rafa and Lascelles have called on your support for Sunday so be there 4.00pm kick off no boycott.

    • Kenny

      Right oh, i`ll make sure i`m in the pub for 3-50 pm

      • Themoscow72

        The protesters will sicken Rafa not Ashley maybe even the players so they doing a great job.

        • Kenny

          Enjoy Rafa whilst you can,
          next season it`ll be Brucie or Hughes taking us down

  • Leazes.

    If form meant anything in football the bookies would go bust.

    • Kenny

      Very true, but after the West Ham game & watching Everton yesterday
      i think we`ll need a bigger bus
