Excited Seamus Coleman hopes the magic of Goodison's floodlights can help Everton extend their unbeaten start to the Premier League season on Monday night.

Roberto Martinez's men go in to their clash with Newcastle United as the only top-flight side yet to taste defeat and the chance to leapfrog much-fancied Chelsea into fourth.

The visiting Magpies, meanwhile,  will be looking to climb away from 16th in the division following a surprise 3-2 home reverse against Hull City last time out.

And Coleman believes the electric atmosphere famously inspired by a floodlit Goodison pitch can propel the Blues to heap more misery on their North East opponents.

"Obviously you want to go unbeaten as long as you can and it is good to have that at this stage of the season because I suppose you go into games with a bit more confidence," the full-back told evertontv.

"I think every game in the Premier League is tough, and Newcastle will want to kick start their season.

"But we are playing in front of our fans and it will be a good atmosphere at Goodison.

"It is a very special atmosphere when the floodlights are on and the fans are behind us. They can push you over the line."

It's not too late to be there and be part of the crowd. To buy tickets for tonight's game, click here or call 0871 663 1878 (kick off 8pm).
