St. James' Park
Newcastle’s 3-1 victory over Stoke on Monday extended the club’s unbeaten sequence in the Barclays Premier League to 13 games, spanning this season and last - their longest top-flight run for more than 61 years. Demba Ba’s hat-trick at the Britannia Stadium was his second of the season and took him to eight goals this season. The Magpies boast the meanest defence in the league having conceded just seven times in the opening 10 matches. Everton go into the encounter languishing in 16th place, although with a game in hand to be played with Tottenham over the rest of the top flight. David Moyes’ side, who have lost four of their last five games, have racked up more points on their travels this term than they have at Goodison Park.
