Head to Head records: Home v Everton

Fellow strugglers, Everton make the midweek trip to St. James' Park on Wednesday having made a good start under new manager, Sam Allardyce with seven points from the last three games. The Toffees do have an excellent recent record against the Magpies with seven wins in the last nine meetings. Hopefully a win for the black and white this time around will help us come unstuck from this winless streak (apologies for the bad pun). When it has come to facing Everton in the league, we have never met the Toffees outside of the top flight.

We haven't kept a clean sheet against Everton since September 2010 when Hatem Ben Arfa scored his first goal for the club in spectacular style as we ran out 1-0 winners at Goodison Park. Even though Everton have been one of few teams to remain ever-present in the Premier League, they eventually did their first league double over us in the 2013/14 season (at the 20th time of trying).

Biggest win (in this fixture)

Newcastle United 8 - 2 Everton (07/11/1959)

The 1959/60 season followed by the 1960/61 season brought very contrasting results against Everton. This 8-2 victory helped on the way to finishing 8th that season as we later did the double of the Toffees. The following season was a rather humiliating season as we got relegated with Everton doing the double over us with a combined scoreline of 9-0.
