Match Updates

Fulltime Thoughts - No words needed.

90’ - Fabian Schar, he who has scored twice at Goodison in time added on, scores to rub salt in the wound, it’s 5-1 now. Oh wait, he’s offside.

81’ - Immediate reply from the Toon as Jacob Murphy makes it 4-1 from an incredible run by Alexander Isak.

80’- Dwight McNeil’s corner goes in directly, but is it too little too late at 3-1?

75’ - More misery, 3-0 now.

72’ - Decent start to the half from the Blues but that is the game surely. Joelinton nods home to make it 2-0 Newcastle.

Second half underway.

45+3’ - Better from the Blues to finish out the half, but it’s always misplaced passes and poorly-hit crosses that end any chance of recovery.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin got in behind the backline and finished with aplomb chipping Nick Pope, but he was fractionally offside, something VAR then went on to confirm.

40’ - That goal has taken all the air out of the Everton players and the crowd is losing some of their steam too. Amadou Onana gets booked for tugging Bruno Guimaraes’ shirt, ripping a vent in it.

30’ - Everton have made an excellent up-tempo start fired up by the Goodison Park crowd, harrying their opponents into making loose passes. However, it’s Callum Wilson getting his obligatory goal against Everton that sees the Toffees behind 1-0.


Everton host high-flying Newcastle with just six games left in the season to ensure Premier League survival. Results elsewhere mean the Blues now sit second-from-bottom in the league table, and failure to win tonight could see them getting even further adrift of the group of teams ahead of them that are still reachable.

Sean Dyche will be buoyed by the return of Abdoulaye Doucoure without whom the toothless Toffees have been even more disconnected between the midfield and attack. Dominic Calvert-Lewin completed 90 minutes over the weekend and the lowest scoring team in all levels of club football in the United Kingdom could certainly do with some goals from him.

The Toon are currently in third place tied with Manchester United but have played a game more. With Champions League football all but secured next season, Eddie Howe’s boys are playing with passion and pride and will be looking to give the much-maligned Anthony Gordon a celebratory homecoming tonight.

Information from


Sean Dyche has reinserted Abdoulaye Doucoure in the starting lineup and gone back to the midfield trio that worked so well for him in the past with Amadou Onana and Idrissa Gueye. Demarai Gray drops out and Dominic Calvert-Lewin starts again.



Last Meeting

The Blues lost by a solitary goal away at the Toon earlier in the season, but in almost identical circumstances last March, Everton did pull out a memorable win last season at Goodison Park with Alex Iwobi getting the lone goal of the game.
