Newcastle have, surprisingly, found some form of late. Unfortunately for the Magpies, they are up against one of the form sides in the league and possibly the form player of the league.
Romelu Lukaku has been at his dominating best in the last few weeks and the big Belgian is likely to cause more problems for the Newcastle defence tonight.
Everton are beginning to dream of European football once more, whilst Ross Barkley has become a more regular threat from midfield, Gerard Deulofeu is quickly beginning to show why Roberto Martinez was so desperate to sign the La Masia graduate.
The Newcastle side have reached a few impressive results of late and look like they might be about to claw their way out of the relegation battle and McClaren’s job is looking more secure than at any other point this season.
Players might have filled up on the turkey last night, but this is sure to be a fiery encounter.
