MATCH REPORT: EVERTON 2-2 NEWCASTLE

LAST SECOND SURRENDER

Everton let their dominant display go to waste as they surrendered a 2-0 home lead over Newcastle United in the final stages of the Tuesday night clash.

Moise Kean’s first goal in English football coupled with Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s 12th of the season had put the Toffees firmly in the driving seat.

However, two goals in the 94th and 95th minute from centre-back Florian Lejeune meant the Magpies returned to Tyneside with an almost miraculous point.

Carlo Ancelotti was not completely dispirited by his side’s surrender of two points and stated: ‘I’m really pleased with the way we played.’

The draw leaves Everton in 12th place but still only four points behind Manchester United in fifth meaning a charge for Europa League football is still a distinct possibility.

It will also be a night to remember for £27.5 million Italian striker Moise Kean who broke his 21-game duck to open the scoring on the half hour mark and put in a strong performance.
