Newcastle has taken late points off Tottenham and Wolves as part of a 2-2-2 start to the season.
The Magpies also have history with taking an unlikely point off Everton, as rare goal scorer Florian Lejeune scored twice in stoppage time of a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park last season.

What they’re saying: Newcastle – Everton
Newcastle’s Steve Bruce on Miguel Almiron: “If you watch (Almiron) week in week out, it has been difficult to leave him out, because of what he gives you. I have asked him to play the left side of midfield at Wolves. He was tireless in his work. Him and Ryan Fraser ran themselves into standstill. That’s what you have to do when they are playing the way they are.”
Everton youngster Anthony Gordon on asking Ancelotti for playing time: “For a young player to break through is hard and for me to be here and getting opportunities is testament to how I am training and improving. I was a little bit [nervous], yes. It was my first time doing it. But he is such a warm man and manager. For me, the nerves weren’t as bad as they could have been, because he is such a nice person. He welcomed it with open arms.”

Prediction: Newcastle – Everton
Surely not, though St. James’ Park is a long haul and a tough place to play. Allan Saint-Maximin will need to work his magic if Newcastle wants to take something out of this. Steve Bruce has his work cut out for him in a midfield without injured Jonjo Shelvey and Carlo Ancelotti knows a thing or too about finding weaknesses (including Bruce’s, with a 4-1-1 head-to-head record all-time). Plus have you seen ex-Sunderland keeper react in matches against Newcastle? This is his Super Bowl. Everton 2-1.
