Our stats preview of Wednesday's trip to St James' Park.

Magic Numbers: Newcastle United

Everton head to Newcastle United’s St James’ Park on Wednesday looking to kick off 2013 with a morale-boosting victory.

Here we preview the trip to the North East with the aid of stats, facts and numbers…

4 Away league defeats for the Toffees in 2012, equalling the Club record for a calendar year. The feat was also achieved in 1969, 1996 and 2010.

5 Premier League goals scored by Kevin Campbell for the Toffees at St James’ Park, the most by an Everton player on an opposing ground since the inaugural 1992/93 campaign. The striker also netted there for us in a 2002 League Cup tie.

8 Previous meetings between the two managers, with David Moyes recording four wins and suffering just two defeats.

Kevin CampbellKevin Campbell remains Everton's leading Premier League scorer at St James' Park. In fact, no Blues player has scored more goals on an opposing ground than the striker's five against the Magpies.

16 Successive Everton games in which both teams have scored, equalling the longest such sequence in the Club’s history set between September and November 1958. In those 16 games a total of 78 goals were scored, against 44 in the current run. History indicates that it will come to an end at Newcastle however - the final match in 1958 was also at home to Chelsea!

41Premier League games played by Tim Howard in 2012, more than any other player. Indeed, the American became the first Everton player not to miss a minute of league action in five successive calendar years following Sunday's game against Chelsea.

64 Victories recorded by both Everton and Newcastle in the 163 meetings between the two clubs. Both are also equal in terms of goals scored: 246 apiece.

Tim HowardIn managing the full 90 minutes against Chelsea on Sunday, Tim Howard became the first Everton player to play every minute of league action in five successive calendar years.

65 League goals scored by the Blues in 2012, a Club record in the Premier League era. The record-breaking strike came courtesy of Steven Pienaar on Sunday, when, for the first time, the South African was on a losing Everton side after finding the net. Prior to the Chelsea clash the midfielder had gone 19 games without defeat after scoring.

87Years since the last Everton league hat-trick at Newcastle, netted by Dixie Dean in December 1925.
