Everton vs Newcastle United Full Match Reports

A triumvirate of late goals ignited celebrations within Goodison Park as Everton secured their second triumph in the Premier League this season, propelling them out of the relegation zone and leaving Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe heading back to Tyneside empty-handed.

Sean Dyche, who boasts more victories against Howe than any other manager, saw his Everton side commence the match brightly on home turf, registering six shots on goal before Newcastle managed one. Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s signature aerial prowess proved troublesome for the visitors in the first half, and his far-post header from Dwight McNeil’s precise cross compelled Martin Dúbravka into a sharp reaction save.

Despite being plagued by injuries—with 12 first-team players ruled out—the Magpies demonstrated their proficiency in fluid attacks. One notable move saw Alexander Isak narrowly miss nodding Kieran Trippier’s whipped cross into the net. However, if any team was to rue missed opportunities in the first half, it was Everton. Calvert-Lewin squandered the best chance just before halftime, volleying wide from a mere six yards out, highlighting the wastefulness that Dyche’s side can ill afford in their battle against relegation.

Newcastle posed a threat shortly after the restart, with Lewis Miley firing over from distance and Anthony Gordon testing Jordan Pickford. However, the decisive moments unfolded in the final 15 minutes, with two crucial errors from Trippier. The first was seized upon by McNeil, who embarked on a solo mission before smashing a left-footed shot into the net. The second error led to a low cross, perfectly met by Abdoulaye Doucouré, who finished decisively past Dúbravka.

In stoppage time, substitute Beto embellished the scoreline, turning home at the near post for his maiden Premier League goal. This victory positions Everton in the relative safety of 17th place as they approach a clash with Chelsea on home turf. Meanwhile, Howe faces the challenge of rejuvenating his deflated and fatigued Newcastle players for a challenging double-header against Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan.

Man of the Match: Dwight McNeil (Everton).
