Everton welcome Newcastle United to Goodison Park on Monday night for the Toffees’ penultimate game of the Premier League campaign.
And - with the help of evertonresults.com - we have picked out all the facts and figures you need to know ahead of the Magpies’ visit
Everton will be targeting a fifth successive victory over Newcastle in this latest encounter between the teams.
Indeed, the Toffees have won their past four games against the Magpies without so much as conceding a goal. The sides last met at Goodison Park in the Premier League in February 2016, when Everton completed a routine 3-0 success.
Wayne Rooney’s first-half goal settled the season’s reverse fixture at St James’ Park back in December, with Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey red carded after collecting two late bookings.
In Goodison encounters alone, Everton are unbeaten in five against the Tynesiders, scoring 14 goals in the course of winning four and drawing one of those matches. Newcastle have won only once in their past 13 visits to Goodison.
If Everton win the match they will chalk up their second Premier League ‘double’ of the campaign. The first was completed when they won at Stoke City last month to add to the opening-day home victory over the Potters.
The game will be Everton’s 997th in the Premier League following the rebranding of England’s top-flight in 1992. The Toffees need to score twice to reach the 1,300 mark in the competition.
If Phil Jagielka starts the game it will be his 296th Premier League start for the Club. That's one more than Leon Osman, meaning the skipper will have only Tim Howard (354) and Leighton Baines (314) ahead of him on that particular chart.
All-in-all, there have been more penalties scored in Everton/Newcastle fixtures - 35 out of 42 awarded - than in any other Everton fixture at all venues. Newcastle have scored 18 of the 23 they've received - that's more than any other Everton opponent.
In terms of 8pm kick-off times, the Blues have won each of their past two outings home and away (most recently a 3-1 win against Swansea in December 2017) - and are unbeaten in seven 8pm matches, with a record of W2 D5 L0. At Goodison the Blues have lost just one of our past 12 matches starting at 8pm - W7 D4 L1.
Putting the day and the time together, the Toffees have lost only one of their last 16 games that kick off at 8pm on a Monday - W6 D9 L1. At Goodison, Everton boast a record of W7 D6 L1 in our last 14 Monday 8pm games at the Grand Old Lady.
Everton have led at the break in each of their last five home games and in eight of the last nine.
Don't leave before the end! The Blues have scored injury time goals in three of our last four meetings with Newcastle, home and away. There have been four goals from the 89th minute onwards in United’s last four trips to Goodison, with both sides netting twice each.
