Football Tips: Thommo’s 11/2 St James’ selection for the Toon v the Toffees

The Everton bandwagon had a wobble last weekend, but can Carlo Ancelotti get it rolling again against Newcastle?


Paddy’s football ambassador Phil Thompson returns with the good folk of PPTV to unearth some vale for Sunday’s Premier League games.

The famously-impartial Thommo gets stuck into Everton’s trip to Newcastle at 2pm on Sunday and explains how the Toffees have helped him narrowly avoid a nose bleed the size of the Mersey as well as tipping up a correct score on Sunday.

Did Everton get a bit of a nose bleed being so high up the table? Well it’s a good job it wasn’t a nose bleed for me because it would have been like the River Mersey! But, I think it was a bit of a bloody nose for them. There’s a bit of expectancy on them from the Evertonians who have been very bullish.

Richarlison was missing last week, obviously it was the first of his three-game ban. It wasn’t just the 2-0 defeat against Southampton that hurt the Evertonians, it was the lack of quality all round in defence, in midfield and up front. It was so disjointed.

I think Southampton actually ran out quite easy winners. To add insult to injury, Lucas Digne gets sent off. I thought it was harsh. That’s coming from a Liverpool man!

I thought it was harsh. Richarlison and Digne are two important players for them because the delivery from Digne is really important from his side for the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin. So, I think that they will be a miss. I think Newcastle got out of jail against Wolves, I really do.

THOMMO’S TIP: I think Newcastle have got to up their game and I see the two things balancing themselves out here so I’m going for a Draw at St James Park, a score draw, 1-1.
