Newcastle United locked horns with Everton at Goodison Park earlier tonight as they tried to bounce back by picking up a win on the road. The Magpies held their own in the first 45 minutes and managed to get to the half-time break with a 0-0 scoreline.
The Tyneside outfit found themselves at a numerical advantage when Allan was sent off in the 83rd minute for a reckless challenge. However, Eddie Howe’s men couldn’t take advantage of the situation and ended up conceding a goal to Alex Iwobi in injury-time. The match finished with the Magpies suffering a 1-0 loss away from home.
Let’s take a look at how each Newcastle player performed during the match against the Toffees.
GK: Martin Dubravka – 6.5/10
The talented keeper made a couple of saves during the game and will be disappointed after allowing such a late goal.
RB: Emil Krafth – 7/10
He was strong in the air and gave a good account of himself when defending inside his half.
CB: Fabian Schar – 6/10
Schar made two important defensive contributions but struggled to impress with his performance on the defensive end of the field.
CB: Dan Burn – 7/10
The Newcastle centre-half made multiple clearances at the back and even blocked a couple of goal-bound shots.
LB: Matt Targett – 6.5/10

Willock made an impact in both halves but failed to help his teammates find the back of the net.
CM: Bruno Guimaraes – 7/10
He had a few promising moments in the game but struggled to be clinical in the final third.

Joelinton worked hard but offered very little in the Everton half.
RW: Miguel Almiron – 7/10
He made two good runs with the ball and engineered one key chance from the right.

He created a couple of decent chances in the final third
LW: Allan Saint-Maximin – 6.5/10
Saint-Maximin was a constant menace in the opposition half.
