      C. Atsu provided the assist.
    • 90'
      GOAL! It's 3-0! Again, Atsu finds plenty of space down the right flank, beating Colback before sending a great ball through to Barkley, who rounds Krul before slotting the ball into the back of the net to wrap up an emphatic victory for Everton.
    • 45'
      Great chance for Everton! The resulting set-piece is whipped towards the back post, where it finds the head of Alcaraz. The centre-back nods the ball down into the six-yard box where Kone is almost able to get a shot away, but it's cut out at the vital moment by Williamson.
    • 90'
      Atsu does well to break into the box once again, beating Colback before trying to cut the ball back to Barkley, but it's sent too near to Krul and the Newcastle goalkeeper is just about able to cut it out.
    • 45'
      Kone is left in acres of space 25 yards away from the Newcastle goal, allowing him to push forward before teeing up Coleman. However, the right-back is beaten to the ball by Coloccini, who then sends it out of play for a corner.
    • 90'
      Atsu twists and turns on the right flank before cutting inside the penalty area and unleashing a low shot, but Williamson does well to throw his body in the way of the strike.

    • 0'
      As a result, Everton stay in 14th place but move six points clear of the relegation zone and to within two points of both Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion. Newcastle, meanwhile, remain in 11th place ahead of a tough clash against in-form Arsenal next weekend.
    • 0'
      In the end, it was a comfortable win for Everton, but it could have been completely different if it wasn't for a moment of madness from Coloccini. Newcastle showed bright spells but couldn't do enough to test the Everton back four, and the Argentine's dismissal made their chances of initiating an un

      It's been a mixed first half for Everton, who were absolutely excellent in the opening half-an-hour but started to struggle from then onwards. However, despite some poor play from the hosts, Newcastle have failed to take advantage of the opportunities being presented to them, with their forward line

    • 0'
      As for Newcastle, they sit seven points clear of today’s hosts in 11th place, although they too have struggled recently, picking up just one win from their last five games, with that victory coming at home to struggling Aston Villa two weeks ago. The Magpies’ erratic form has seen them comfortably b
    • 0'
      Despite picking up an excellent 2-1 victory at home to Dynamo Kyiv in the Europa League during the week, things remain as bleak as ever for Everton on the domestic front, as a disappointing season in which they have only won six games has left them just three points clear of the relegation zone in 1

      Good afternoon and welcome to our live text commentary of today's Premier League clash between Everton and Newcastle United. My name is Ben Cullimore and I will be keeping you up to date with all of the action from Goodison Park.
    • 1'
      And we're off! Newcastle get us underway, attacking from left to right.
    • 2'
      Sissoko drives forward before teeing up Ameobi on the left flank, but the winger's dangerous cross it cut out well by Jagielka before it's able to meet Riviere on the edge of the six-yard box.
    • 3'
      Nervy moments at the back for Everton! Jagielka smashes the ball out of play for a throw-in, which is then deflected out of play for a corner. It's sent in to the heart of the penalty area where it pinballs around the face of the goal before Newcastle appeal for a handball, but the referee shakes hi
    • 4'
      Riviere goes close! After only managing to half clear the danger, Gouffran darts into the right-hand side of the box before chipping a deft cross onto the head of the striker, but his looping header is comfortably stopped by Howard.
    • 5'
      Everton immediately break away on a quick counter attack, with Lukaku sprinting down the right wing before cutting inside and firing a curling shot that is easily saved by Krul.
    • 7'
      Lukaku strikes again! The Belgian is finding a lot of space down the right wing, which he uses to great effect before comfortably skipping past a tame challenge from Sissoko and unleashing a fierce shot that Krul does well to stop.
    • 9'
      Everton patiently pass the ball around inside their own half of the pitch before Gibson fires a lofted through-ball into the path of Kone, but Krul is just about able to rush out of his box and shepherd it out of play for a goal kick.
    • 10'
      Obertan is caught by a flailing arm, resulting in a free kick for Newcastle midway inside the Everton half of the pitch. Taylor attempts to curl the set-piece towards the back post but it's dealt with well by Alcaraz.
    • 11'
      The hosts attempt to break away on another swift counter attack, with Howard quickly setting up Lukaku. The Belgian darts forward before trying to skip past Colback, but the midfielder dispossesses the striker with an excellent tackle.
    • 13'
      Newcastle are putting Everton under plenty of pressure, with a plethora of grey shirts camped inside the hosts' half of the pitch, but a promising-looking attack is brought to an end by Lennon, who brilliantly dispossesses Ameobi before winning his side a goal kick.
    • 15'
      Kone and Jagielka link up well on the left-hand side of the penalty area before the latter sends a dangerous low cross towards Lukaku, but Williamson is just about able to cut out the danger with a vital interception at the near post.
    • 16'
      Again, Everton push forward brilliantly, with Lukaku this time penetrating the space on the right flank. He sends in a low cross that is deflected out of play for a corner, and the resulting set-piece is punched away by Krul.
    • 18'
      Great play by Everton! Lukaku holds up the ball extremely well before Lennon chips a lovely pass into the path of McCarthy. The Irishman sprints towards the right-hand edge of the box before trying to find Kone with a low cross, but it's sent slightly too near to Krul, who is just about able to poun
    • 19'
      Again, Gibson fires a long ball over the top of the Newcastle defence and towards Kone, but it ends up missing the striker by the narrowest of margins before bouncing out of play for a corner.

      G J. McCarthy Assist R. Lukaku
    • 20'
      R. Lukaku provided the assist.
    • 20'
      GOAL! Everton have taken the lead! A long ball forward from Jagielka is held up well by Lukaku, who spins quickly and tees up McCarthy. The Irishman then takes two deft touches before firing a low shot that flies past Krul and into the bottom right-hand corner of the net.
    • 22'
      Lukaku bursts forward quickly, twisting and turning on the right wing before penetrating the penalty area. He then tries to send a deft through-ball into the path of Lennon but it's sent just out of the reach of the midfielder.
    • 24'
      Newcastle push forward well before earning themselves a free kick on the left flank, but it's poorly hit and can only find Kone, who is easily able to head the ball away from danger.
    • 26'
      Brilliant build-up play from Everton results in Baines whipping in a dangerous cross from the left-hand side of the penalty area that finds Lukaku on the edge of the six-yard box, but the Belgian's looping header is comfortably dealt with by Krul.
    • 28'
      Colback skips down the right wing before cutting inside and being clumsily fouled by Osman, resulting in a free kick in a very dangerous position. It's curled towards the back post but, once again, Alcaraz is there to deal with it for the hosts.
    • 29'
      Lukaku holds up the ball well before laying it off to Lennon, who tries to skip past Taylor before being brought to the ground by the defender, who recevies a yellow card as a result.
    • 30'
      Lukaku steps up and fires a fierce strike from the resulting set-piece, but it's overhit and ends up flying several yards over the top of the crossbar.
    • 32'
      After a period of Everton dominance, Newcastle are enjoying a good spell of possession at the moment, but the hosts are holding firm to keep them at bay.
    • 34'
      Baines gallops forward before firing a quick first-time cross towards Lukaku, but Janmaat does well to stick out a foot and deflect it out for a corner, which Sissoko then clears with a strong header.
    • 35'
      The ball pinballs around the edge of the Everton penalty area before Janmaat is finally able to whip in a cross towards the near post, but it's struck too near to Howard, who is easily able to cut out the danger before Riviere can get his head on the ball.
    • 37'
      Sissoko picks up the ball in the middle of the pitch before attempting to chip a deft pass onto the chest of Obertan. However, the Frenchman goes down after an accidental coming together with Jagielka and the ball bounces safely into the hands of Howard.
    • 39'
      A plethora of Everton players battle for the ball near the corner flag on the left flank, but Obertan does well to get back and win possession for the visitors before clearing the danger.
    • 41'
      Newcastle are looking far more confident now. Obertan twists on the edge of the box and sends a lovely through-ball into the path of Sissoko, whose low cross is deflected towards Riviere at the near post before going out for a goal kick.
    • 43'
      Janmaat gets down the right flank well before sending a bouncing cross into the heart of the Everton penalty area. It meets Riviere but his first touch is poor, denying him the opportunity to turn and fire a shot towards goal.
    • 44'
      Everton just can't get the ball away from their own penalty area! A looping Janmaat cross is poorly hit and can only find Jagielka at the back post, but he spends far too long in possession and his clearance is poor, inviting Newcastle to push forward again. They do so, but, due to poor passing, the

    • 46'
      And we're underway once again!
    • 48'
      Taylor breaks away on an excellent run down the left wing before cutting inside towards the edge of the Everton penalty area, where Gibson brings him down with a poor challenge in a very dangerous position.
    • 49'
      Great strike by Taylor! The left-back whips the resulting free kick over the top of the wall and towards the left-hand corner of the goal, but it flies just over the crossbar.
    • 51'
      Newcastle lose possession near the halfway line, allowing Everton to break away quickly. McCarthy sprints forward before teeing up Lukaku on the right flank, but the Irishman's pass is poor, forcing the Belgian out too wide and breaking the attack down.
    • 53'
      A poor touch from Taylor results in him getting clattered by a high challenge from Lennon, but the referee refuses to brandish a card, even though the challenge did look rather nasty.
    • 55'
      Sissoko, who is extremely angry at the penalty decision, is shown a yellow card for dissent.
    • 55'
      PENALTY! A dangerous Lennon cross is half cleared by the Newcastle defence towards Gouffran, who, for some strange reason, holds onto the ball on the edge of the box before being dispossessed by the winger. The Frenchman then clumsily sticks out a foot and brings the winger crashing to the ground, r
    • 56'

    • 59'
      RED CARD! It's gone from bad to worse for Newcastle, who have now been reduced to 10 men! Everton break away quickly, with Kone and Lukaku linking up well. Lennon then picks up the ball before being maliciously challenged by Coloccini, who is immediately given his marching orders.
    • 60'
      Baines fires a curling strike from the resulting free kick that deflects off the Newcastle wall before being comfortably saved by Krul.

    • 64'
      Everton patiently pass the ball around just outside of the Newcastle penalty area before Gibson tries to find Kone, but it's poorly hit and is easily cut out by Sissoko.
    • 66'
      Gutierrez sends a great pass through the middle of the Everton defence and into the path of Perez, who darts forward but is just about unable to make contact with the ball before it's collected by Howard.
    • 68'
      It's all Everton at the moment, who, unsurprisingly, seem content to hold onto possession in the visitors' half of the pitch before attempting to pick apart a deflated Newcastle half of the pitch.
    • 70'
      Great strike by Kone! Baines brings down a Gibson pass extremely well before teeing up the Ivorian, who unleashes an excellent strike from the edge of the box that Krul parries away with a strong save.
    • 72'
      Nervy moments at the back for Newcastle! A dangerous low cross from Coleman bobbles around the heart of the penalty area, with several players trying to get a shot away but none of them able to do so due to the sea of grey shirts camped inside the box.
    • 74'
      SI R. Barkley SO R. Lukaku
    • 74'
      Everton have made their first change of the game, with Barkley coming on to take the place of Lukaku.
    • 76'
      Another important stop by Krul! This time it's Osman who tests the Dutchman with a long-range shot, but the Newcastle goalkeeper gets down well to his right to parry the strike away with a strong hand.
    • 77'
      And now Barkley goes close! Lennon darts into the right-hand side of the penalty area before cutting a lovely ball back to the substitute, who immediately unleashes a low shot that beats Krul before being cleared off the line by Taylor.
    • 78'
      Great shot by Sissoko! The Frenchman holds up the ball well on the edge of the Everton box before twisting and firing a fantastic strike that Howard tips around the post with an excellent diving save.
    • 79'
      Lennon slides into Cabella and brings the Frenchman down from behind, resulting in a yellow card for the Everton winger.
    • 81'
      Wonderful play by Perez! The Spaniard receives the ball near the byline on the left-hand side of the penalty area before sending an excellent low cross that beats Howard but fails to find a grey shirt inside the six-yard box.
    • 83'
      Excellent tackle by Alcaraz! Perez and Cabella link up well on the edge of the penalty area before the latter sprints into the box, but the Paraguayan darts across and intercepts the Frenchman at the vital moment.

      SI C. Atsu SO R. Lukaku
    • 85'
      Everton have made their second substitution, with Lennon making way for Atsu for the final few moments of the game.

      SI M. Bešić SO R. Lukaku
    • 86'
      And now Everton have made their final change, with Besic coming on to take the place of McCarthy.
    • 88'
      What a chance for Kone! The Ivorian breaks through the middle of the Newcastle defence before rounding Krul, but he holds onto the ball near the byline for far too long and fails to tee up Atsu before the Newcastle defence are finally able to rush back and deal with the danger.
    • 90'
      The fourth official has indicated that there will be three minutes of added time.
