Jordan Pickford GK vs. Nick Pope GK


Jordan Pickford has been solid if unspectacular this season for Everton. Despite conceding 18 goals, he has made 33 saves and kept 4 clean sheets. He could be busy against this Newcastle attack. He also has a tendency to make errors leading to goals, which this Newcastle side could exploit.


Nick Pope by contrast comes into the game in good form having kept 6 clean sheets already. His shot stopping has been excellent, with a save percentage of 74%. Everton could struggle to break him down. Pope has added leadership and organizational skills to Newcastle’s backline, keeping things tidy and quiet.
