Everton hosted Newcastle United at Goodison Park, and they conceded two stoppage-time goals which saw the game end 2-2. The home team were absolutely coasting throughout the game, and even from Everton’s standards, nobody saw this collapse coming.
The match was end to end to start with, and both teams played with intensity. However, the Toffees soon took control of the tie. Moise Kean scored his first goal for the Merseyside club as Bernard found him with a delightful chip pass and the Italian striker finally managed to get off the mark.
Everton looked at ease for most of the game, and Calvert-Lewin added comfort to his side’s lead as he finished well from Digne’s pass to make it 2-0 in the second half. Newcastle never really threatened much while going forward but they scored from two late set-pieces as Florian Lejeune managed a brace.
Jordan Pickford 4
Didn’t have much to do but guilty for not getting a better clearance for the first goal. The second goal was a goalmouth scrap, and he couldn’t have done much to prevent it.
Mason Holgate 6.5
Played with confidence with the ball at his feet. Showed good commitment while defending and made some important interventions.
Yerry Mina 5
Given his physical presence, he should have done better while defending the two set-pieces in the end. Missed a decent chance earlier to score. Did a fine job overall but the last five minutes just turned the game.
Djibril Sidibe 7
Has faced some flak for his defensive work but Sidibe put in a decent shift on the right. Helped his side in attack whenever he got his chance to move forward. Most importantly he was solid defensively and made a few good interceptions and challenges.
Lucas Digne 7
Always looking to help his side by making runs in the attacking half of the pitch. Worked hard and played a good pass for the second goal to find Calvert-Lewin.
Morgan Schneiderlin 6.5
Kept things simple and moving in the middle. Protected the backline well for most parts as Newcastle never really threatened much from open play.
Fabian Delph 6.5
Tried some audacious passes early on but settled in well as the game went on. Unspectacular but steady from the Englishman.
A man of the match display from Bernard as he threatened the Newcastle defence every time he got on the ball. His energy, work rate and clever passes stood out. Assisted the first goal and had a few pops at goal as well.
Theo Walcott 7
Linked up play well and played a few incisive passes. Stretched the game from the right and did a decent job overall.
Moise Kean 8
Looked sharp and worked hard for the team. Took one decent attempt from range in the first half and then scored later on with a decent finish. Made some good runs and played with a lot of heart which saw him win a few balls. Hopefully, can kick on from here onwards.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin 8
Has been growing into his striker’s role and led the line well. Took the ball well and turned smartly to finish beyond Dubravka for Everton’s second goal. Held up play well and was in the thick of things in the attacking third.
Seamus Coleman 5
Came on for Kean and brought fresh legs
Oumar Niasse N/A
Didn’t play enough to warrant a rating.
Tom Davies N/A
Didn’t play enough to warrant a rating.
