Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours

Everton are back in action tomorrow when they travel to St. James’ Park for their match against Newcastle. A win for the Toffees will see them move up to ninth spot while a loss for the Magpies will see them drop further into the relegation zone. Newcastle post a 6-8-1 record at home while the Blues are 4-7-3 on the road this season. In their past 10 meetings, Everton have won eight, drawn one, and lost one. Everton will hope to add to that win tally this weekend.
