On Thursday, Evans signed a new deal with the club to stay at the King Power Stadium until the summer of 2023 and will look to celebrate the news with another Premier League victory.

We played against them last year on New Year’s Day. ” For us, it was a really good win. This season, Newcastle struggled to score again, scoring just 17 times in 15 league games, but picked up points against some of the leading sides of the league. Steve Bruce’s side held Tottenham and Liverpool to draws and notable wins over West Ham and Everton, who both have strong seasons. Evans from Northern Ireland added: “Newcastle have struggled to score again this season, scoring just 17 times in 15 league games, but have picked up points against some of the league’s leading sides. Steve Bruce’s side have held Tottenham and Liverpool to draws and notable wins over West Ham and Everton, who are both having good seasons. Northern Ireland international Evans added: ” They managed to get an outcome against us in a home game at the King Power Stadium when Brendan (Rodgers) first came in, and we were able to rectify that the next season. “We know they will be tough to crack. Steve Bruce will have them very well organized and that will be the challenge for us – to try to crack them and score early in the game.”
