Steve Bruce faces a must-win Premier League clash when he takes his Newcastle to Everton this Saturday lunchtime.
The Magpies have been awful in recent weeks and have not won in their last 11 games in all competitions.

They were beaten by Leeds in midweek and must bounce back soon before they are sucked into the relegation zone.
Newcastle did beat Everton 2-1 at St James’ Park back in November with Callum Wilson netting a double.
But the Toffees, who drew with Leicester last time out, have been in good form recently and can move to within a point of Liverpool with a win.

Everton vs Newcastle: What has been said?
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce: “I wouldn’t expect to be bullet-proof, no. I don’t need any assurances.
“Look, we’re in the Premier League, we understand that we’re judged on results and our results haven’t been good enough at the minute.
“We played very, very well [in the home fixture against Everton].
“We know we’re capable and to be capable we need everybody fit and healthy and we’re edging towards that.
“I was pleased with the second half against Leeds so let’s hope we can build on that.”

Everton vs Newcastle: Match stats and facts
Everton have lost one of their last 16 home Premier League matches against Newcastle (W10 D5), a 1-0 defeat in September 2010.
Newcastle United haven’t recorded a Premier League double over Everton since the 2001-02 season under Bobby Robson, winning 3-1 away and 6-2 at home that season.
Last season’s Premier League meeting between Everton and Newcastle at Goodison Park saw Florian Lejeune score two goals in the 90th minute to earn the Magpies a 2-2 draw, the first instance of a player scoring twice in the last minute of an away top-flight match since April 2001 – Gustavo Poyet for Chelsea vs Derby County.
Everton have lost just one of their last eight Premier League games (W5 D2), going down 0-1 against West Ham on New Year’s Day.
Newcastle have lost their last five Premier League away games, failing to score in any of the last four. They last lost six in a row in April 2016 (a run of 9), while they last lost five in a row without scoring in May 2015 – both runs included 0-3 defeats at Everton.
No Premier League side is on a longer current run without a win than Newcastle (9), while the Magpies’ run of five consecutive defeats in the competition is also the current longest in the division.
In their first nine Premier League games this season, Everton conceded 16 goals from 42 shots on target faced (38%), shipping at least twice seven times. In their last nine, the Toffees have conceded just six goals from 32 shots on target faced (19%), and never more than once in a match in that run.
Just four of Newcastle’s 19 Premier League goals this season have been scored in the first half of games, both a league-low total and percentage (21%).
Newcastle had 22 shots (5 on target) in their 1-2 defeat against Leeds last time out, their most in a Premier League game this season. Indeed, it was more than the Magpies had managed in their previous three league games combined (18, also 5 on target).
Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored in each of his last four Premier League appearances against Newcastle, netting five goals. The last player to score in five consecutive appearances against the Magpies was Sergio Agüero between 2013 and 2016.
