Whatever happens in this match at Goodison Park, both these clubs have had a successful campaign, but Newcastle still harbour hopes of making it a dream one. To be heading into the last day with a chance of a top-four finish and possible Champions League football is a remarkable scenario that no one would have believed possible last August. They'll be hoping history repeats itself too. Fifteen years ago Kenny Dalglish's team went into the last fixture as one of three teams vying for a Champions League spot. Courtesy of goals from Les Ferdinand, Alan Shearer, Faustino Asprilla and Robbie Elliott they beat Nottingham Forest and secured second place on goal difference, ironically from Arsenal, who start this weekend with their fate in their own hands.
Alan Pardew's team have been in the top seven all season and that's exactly Everton's target going into this one, which would equal their achievement of last season. However, there is the added spice of finishing above Liverpool. They have managed to finish above Liverpool only once under David Moyes and just twice in the last 25 years and that would send plenty of Evertonians into the summer happy.
• Everton have won on the final day for the past four seasons, a record only Manchester United can match.
• The Magpies will finish the season with their highest points total since 2002-03 (69 points).
