Everton won 3-0 against Newcastle with late goals by Dwight McNeil, Abdoulaye Doucoure, and Beto. Kieran Trippier's mistakes helped Everton secure the victory, moving them out of the relegation zone.

The defeat put Newcastle in seventh place with 26 points, while Everton, despite a 10-point deduction, climbed to 17th with 10 points. McNeil, appreciating the fans' support, emphasized the importance of back-to-back wins.
In the second half, Newcastle seemed tired, and Everton missed chances earlier in the game, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin missing a clear opportunity. Everton's season had been frustrating, but they found a clinical touch in the closing stages, securing their second home win.
Newcastle's forwards, despite being skillful and fast, had few threats. Miguel Almiron's shot went straight to Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, and Alexander Isak's header missed the target.
Former Everton player Anthony Gordon received cheers but missed a chance. Newcastle manager Eddie Howe acknowledged the need for improvement, citing difficulties in changing players and a lack of attacking options.
In summary, Everton's late goals, aided by Trippier's errors, earned them a crucial win, moving them out of the relegation zone. Newcastle faced challenges, and Everton capitalized on their chances to secure a well-deserved victory.
