Newcastle 2-1 Everton
Steve Bruce’s side exploited the Toffees’ lack of strength in depth without Lucas Digne, Richarlison, James Rodriguez and Seamus Coleman as Callum Wilson scored a second-half double (58 & 84).
Wilson’s first came from the penalty spot after Andre Gomes clumsily fouled the striker before the former Bournemouth man wrapped up the points by finishing off a counter-attack, spearheaded by Ryan Fraser. Dominic Calvert-Lewin set up a grandstand finish with a neat finish (90) but it only proved to be a consolation.
Carlo Ancelotti, who decided to drop Jordan Pickford in place of Robert Olsen in goal, has now suffered back-to-back defeats for the first time as Everton boss.
