Full time - Wasted opportunity to pick up two more points for the Blues here.
90’ - There’ll be five minutes added on.
85’ - Jordan Pickford’s critics will be eating crow after he makes an excellent save to keep the game level.
80’ - Everton have simply been unable to break through Newcastle’s massed ranks. Silva throws Dominic Calvert-Lewin on now.
69’ - Richarlison and Lookman have swapped wings, the Brazilian gets a shot off from a narrow angle.
Silva has seen enough and yanks Tosun and Sigurdsson, Bernard and Theo Walcott are on.
66’ - DeAndre Yedlin hacks down Digne, gets a yellow card.
64’ - Newcastle make the first sub, Jacob Murphy off for Ayoze Perez.
62’ - Diame and Richarlison clatter into each other, the Newcastle player goes in the book more for dissent than anything else.
56’ - Everton showing a bit of a sense of urgency here, but not necessarily any more incisiveness.
51’ - Digne got stamped on by former Blues Christian Atsu, but is back on the pitch.
46’ - Blues out from the break pretty quickly, Marco usually takes more time. No changes as we can see.
Halftime - Marco Silva looked quite unhappy for most of the happy, will be more pleased with the Blues’ response after going down.
45+1’ - Dubravka pulls off a blinder at point blank from Tosun!! Oh man, so unlucky.
Newcastle have certainly had the best of all the bounces so far.
38’ - GOAL!! Richarlison slams it home.. from the tenth corner!!
Mina got close to it, fell to Richarlison and the Brazilian hammered it into the roof of the net.
35’ - Blocked! Ball falls to Sigurdsson near the penalty spot, a sliding block clears it for a corner.
We’re up to 9 corners already! Also cleared away, of course.
31’ - Lookman finally coming awake, wins a foul just outside the box on the right. Sigurdsson swings it in, Digne wins a corner. Cleared away.
30’ - This is a pretty mediocre Newcastle side on paper, but Benitez has them ready to play and the Blues are struggling to create clear-cut chances.
29’ - The Geordies win a corner on the Everton left. Ki to take, but it’s cleared.
25’ - Richarlison’s cross is blocked by Jamaal Lascelles’ arm, but it was in tight right in front of him, that is never a penalty.
22’ - Toffees now attacking with a vengeance, twice Richarlison has been foiled within a minute running into the box.
19’ - And just like that Newcastle are ahead 1-0. Solomon Rondon gets to a cross that fizzes across the six yard line with both Zouma and Mina missing it.
Lookman looked to have been fouled in the middle in the buildup for that goal, Blues very unhappy.
17’ - Richarlison gets to a Sigurdsson cross, his shot is charged down twice from a marrow angle on the right.
Digne’s corner is cleared for another one, and then cleared again. Reminder that the Blues are yet to score from a corner this season, despite some excellent deliveries from Sigurdsson and Digne, and some pretty tall players in the box to aim for.
14’ - Tosun gets his head on a cross from Richarlison, but it’s well over.
11’ - Newcastle win a freekick down the Blues’ right, Lookman foul. Headed well high.
8’ - Blues concentrating on attacking down the left, Ademola Lookman is looking lonely on the right.
4’ - All Everton so far. Cenk Tosun wins a corner.. Lucas Digne takes, cleared away.
1’ - We’re off! Everton scoring at the Gwladys Street End.
Lineups - Three changes for the Blues as Ademola Lookman makes his first start, Yerry Mina partners Kurt Zouma and Cenk Tosun returns.

Everton are back at home today and host Newcastle United, looking to put behind them the derby debacle from Sunday. Marco Silva was pretty pleased with how the Blues played overall, but with this fixture coming just three days after the last game and another coming up in five days on Monday, we can expect some changes to the starting lineup.
The Geordies saw their three game winning streak come to an abrupt halt when they were beaten at home on Sunday by West Ham United, and hover closer to the relegation zone than their manager Rafa Benitez would like.

The Blues have a pretty decent record at home against Newcastle, and put together a pair of 1-0 wins over the Toon Army last season. Wayne Rooney bundled home away at St James Park last December early in Sam Allardyce’s (blech!) tenure, before a Theo Walcott strike sealed the points at Goodison Park in April.
