Everton’s struggles in front of goal continued in their recent match against Newcastle, as they failed to convert their chances and ultimately lost 1-0. Despite dominating possession and creating several opportunities, Everton were unable to find the back of the net. Newcastle’s goal came from a three-vs-two break down the left, with Joelinton cutting inside and unleashing a shot that Pickford could only push out into danger. Wilson was on hand to poke the ball into the roof of the net.
The game was a scrappy affair, with both teams struggling to find any rhythm. Everton’s midfield trio of Gueye, Onana, and Doucoure were outstanding, winning many second balls and thwarting every Newcastle transition. However, Everton’s lack of cutting edge in the final third proved costly, as they were unable to convert their chances.
One reason for optimism for Everton was the return of Dominic Calvert-Lewin from injury. However, he was unable to make an impact on the game, snatching at his shots from the edge of the box. Everton’s lack of goals is a major concern, as they are currently the Premier League’s lowest scorers and in danger of relegation.
In contrast, Newcastle have been in excellent form, with only one defeat in their last six games. They are showing few signs of weakness in their pursuit of Champions League qualification. However, they will need to improve their away form, as they have now conceded in each of their last six Premier League away games.
