Everton 1 – 0Newcastle

Alex Iwobi scored in the ninth minute of stoppage time as Everton 10 ended a four-game losing streak with a dramatic 1-0 victory over Newcastle in an ecstatic Goodison Park.

Frank Lampard’s side had Allan sent off in the 83rd minute after an early booking for a foul on Allan Saint-Maximin was upgraded to a red card by referee Craig Pawson following a VAR review.

But after withstanding a late pressure barrage from Newcastle, the hosts stole possession in midfield, allowing Iwobi to drive the ball forward, exchange passes with substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewin and slipping home a cool finish to seal an unlikely win.

There were still five minutes of stoppage time to play after that due to a bizarre delay at the start of the second half. One protester had to be freed by stewards using bolt cutters after he tied himself to the goal with a cable tie around his neck.

But Everton held on to inflict Newcastle’s first Premier League defeat in 10 games and clinch a crucial morale-boosting victory that lifts them three points clear of the relegation zone.
