Everton clashed heads with Newcastle United at St. James’ Park earlier tonight as they looked to grab maximum points on the road. The Toffees made a poor start to the game and found themselves a goal down in the 30th minute when Miguel Almiron scored with a brilliant strike. The Merseyside club went into the half-time break 1-0 down on the scoreline.

The Toffees failed to mount a comeback in the second half and crashed to a lackluster 1-0 defeat away from home.

Let’s take a look at how each Everton player fared during the match against the Magpies.

GK: Jordan Pickford – 6.5/10

The English keeper made a few decent saves at the back but failed to secure a clean sheet tonight.

RB: Seamus Coleman – 6/10

He worked hard defensively but lacked the cutting edge in the final third.

CB: Conor Coady – 6.5/10

Coady tried his best to keep things solid at the back for most of the game.

CB: James Tarkowski – 7/10

The English defender was a rock at the back as he was responsible for making a lot of important interceptions and clearances inside his half.

LB: Vitaliy Mykolenko – 6/10

Mykolenko had a few bright moments in the game but struggled to get a foothold in the Newcastle half.

CM: Amadou Onana – 6.5/10

Onana got stuck in with some solid tackles and was accurate with his passing.

CM: Alex Iwobi – 6/10

He was tidy with his ball distribution but failed to influence the game at both ends of the field.

CM: Idrissa Gueye – 6.5/10

Gueye protected his backline as much as he could but offered very little in the opponent’s half.

RW: Anthony Gordon – 6.5/10

The Liverpool-born talent made two good runs with the ball but was toothless in front of the Newcastle goal.

ST: Dominic Calvert-Lewin – 5.5/10

Calvert-Lewin was quiet for most of the game and produced a disjointed display in the opposition half.

LW: Demarai Gray – 6.5/10

He showed a few flashes of what he can do but never looked like he would score.

Substitutes:

CM: James Garner – 6/10

He added some energy to Everton’s midfield.

ST: Neal Maupay – 6/10

Maupay failed to threaten the Newcastle goal.

RW: Dwight McNeil – 6/10

His impact on the game was minimal.
