The threat of relegation has been banished for both of these sides and, such is the extent of their respective renaissances recently, these two teams are aiming to end the campaign in the top half.
Rafael Benitez's side, though, are brimming with belief at present as they have won each of their last four fixtures, losing just one of their last nine outings - against Liverpool at Anfield.
Newcastle will be hopeful that this visit to Merseyside is more fruitful, though, and they can be backed at 12/5 (3.40) to enjoy a fifth successive Premier League victory.
SportPesa go 23/10 (3.30) that the fixture ends in stalemate, a result which would move both sides even further clear of the bottom half.
Eliaquim Mangala, James McCarthy, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Mason Holgate and Maarten Stekelenburg are all out for the Toffees.
Rafael Benitez has an almost fully fit squad from which to choose, with Christian Atsu (knee) and Jesus Gamez the only men missing for the trip to Merseyside.
Goals at a premium?
Between them, these teams have managed just 74 Premier League goals thus far, with Everton scoring 39 times and Newcastle finding the net just 35 times.
Preview and predictions
The Toffees, though, have scored in 12 of their last 15 matches on their own patch, while Newcastle have kept just one clean sheet in their last 15 fixtures away from St James' Park.
Furthermore, the Magpies have been on target in 11 of their last 12 league matches, while the Toffees have kept just two clean sheets in their last 15 games.
With all that in mind, there is plenty of potential for goals in this game and SportPesa's 20/21 (1.95) quote for both teams to score could well provide punters with a path to profit.
