    • KICK OFF
    • 90'
      WHAT A FINISH!!! That is incredible composure from Barkley, who dinks the spot-kick expertly high into the roof of the net to make it Everton 3-0 Newcastle!
    • 45'
      Good play from the visitors sees Shelvey spread a neat pass out wide to Janmaat. The full-back cuts into the area and pokes an effort goalwards, but Robles is well-positioned to make a comfortable stop.
    • 90'
      ANOTHER PENALTY TO EVERTON! AND A RED CARD FOR LASCELLES! The former Nottingham Forest defender makes a dreadful mistake which Barkley capitalises on. The England man powers into the area and the Newcastle man can only bring him down, duly receiving a straight red card for his troubles.
    • 45'
      The fourth official has indicated there will be a minimum of three minutes added time at the end of this half, as Newcastle manage to forge another venture forward, but Janmaat’s cross is easy-pickings for Robles, who gathers it in under no pressure.
    • 90'
      WHAT A MISS! That is so poor from Kone! The Ivorian does well initially to combine with Barkley and drive into the area. He is teed up perfectly by his aforementioned team-mate, but with just Elliot to beat, the former Sevilla man blasts his effort high over the crossbar.

      Well, that’s all from me for this evening. It has finished Everton 3-0 Newcastle United at Goodison Park. Until next time, thank you and goodbye!
    • 0'
      As for Newcastle, they were not at the races tonight and travel back to Tyneside with their tails between their legs. Three of their four January signings were on show at Goodison, and none of Shelvey, Townsend or Saivet managed to impress. Mitrovic did miss a golden chance to restore parity shortly
    • 0'
      Everton were by far the better side throughout, and started the first half well and their fast showing was capped off by Aaron Lennon’s well-taken strike mid-way through the opening stanza. The hosts came out strong after the interval, and though they had to withstand a glut of pressure after the ho

      FULL-TIME! That's it from Goodison Park, where it has finished 3-0 to Everton. It was a fine display from Roberto Martinez's side as they installed some confidence back into their ranks. As for Steve McClaren's men, however, they were desperately disappointing, and if not for their goalkeeper the d
    • 0'
      Martinez’s side have put in a composed display so far, and could have taken the lead early on if not for a fine save by Rob Elliot. Lennon, who has been excellent out on the right wing, drilled them deservedly ahead in the 23rd minute, before Ross Barkley missed a golden opportunity to double their
    • 0'
      HALF-TIME! Craig Pawson sounds the whistle for the interval, then, with Everton leading 1-0 at Goodison thanks to Aaron Lennon’s second goal in as many games. The hosts have been the better team throughout, with Newcastle offering little in terms of attacking threat.
    • 0'
      A warm round of applause now from the Goodison faithful as Everton’s newest signing Niasse makes his way onto the pitch for the first time. The Senegalese is somewhat of an unknown quality, but certainly looks to have all the ingredients to be a real success in the Premier League.
    • 0'
      Some big nights for some of these players today then. As mentioned previously, Townsend lines-up for his maiden Newcastle start, while - due to Howard’s absence - Jindrich Stanek makes his debut in Everton's senior squad. Ross Barkley, who has netted twice in his last two games to take his total to

    • 0'
      The team news is in from Merseyside, and there are several changes for both sides from their last outings. Martinez makes just two switches to the line-up that defeated Carlisle, though the main news for the hosts is perhaps the players who are absent from the squad. In come Romelu Lukaku and Gareth
    • 0'
      One new player who can feature tonight is Newcastle’s latest arrival Seydou Doumbia. The Ivory Coast striker became McClaren’s fourth signing of the January window when he arrived on loan from Roma on deadline day, and he starts on the bench this evening, while there is a debut for fellow new arriva
    • 0'
      Martinez has come under increasing scrutiny over the past few weeks, as Everton fans have begun to question the methods of the Spaniard following a run of poor results in January. They bounced back from consecutive defeats against Swansea City and Manchester City - the latter of which saw them slump

      Hello ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to this LIVE text coverage of Everton’s Premier League encounter with Newcastle United at Goodison Park. Roberto Martinez’s side have not managed to earn a victory in the top flight since Tom Cleverley’s last-minute header gave them all three points at St.Jame
    • 1'
      KICK-OFF! We are underway here at Goodison, with Everton attacking from left to right in this first half. The referee this evening is Craig Pawson.
    • 3'
      It’s been a positive start on Merseyside, with both sides looking to make immediate headway into opposition territory. First, Cleverley - starting out on the left flank - switches a long pass out to Lennon on the opposite wing. The former Tottenham winger, who was excellent at Carlisle, jinks past h
    • 5'
      GOOD SAVE! That’s a great stop from Elliot! Everton open up their visitors with a well-worked move down the left. Barkley peels out wide before threading a pass into Lukaku, who tees up Cleverley. The midfielder goes for goal from the edge of the area with a driven first-time effort, but the Newcast
    • 7'
      Everton have certainly started on the front foot here, as you may expect. Barkley and Lukaku are both looking lively in central areas, and the former plays a crisp pass out to Barry, who gets Lennon releases down the right flank, with the diminutive winger doing well to win a corner. Oviedo delivers
    • 9'
      STAT FLASH: Lukaku has scored five goals and assisted four more in seven Premier League appearances against Newcastle, while Barkley has netted in three of his five top-flight outings against the Magpies.
    • 10'
      A bit of concern now for Everton, as Lukaku lays on the turf with a back injury picked up in a collision with Coloccini. The Belgian is clutching the small of his back, and is now receiving treatment...
    • 12'
      A warm show of appreciation now as Lukaku returns to his feet. He still looks in some discomfort, but it appears that he will carry on, though for now, at least, the hosts are down to 10 men.
    • 14'
      Lukaku returns to the fray and is involved immediately in proceedings as Barkley picks him out with a lofted pass. The burly forward holds it up well before laying it off to Lennon, and Everton attempt to work a patient move up-field. However, they slow it down just too much, and Coleman soon conced
    • 16'
      Well we are still waiting for a first real chance of the game here at Goodison, in what has been a rather tepid start in all truth. Cleverley has gone closest with an effort from the cusp of Newcastle’s area, but Elliot was equal to it. As for the visitors, they have so far failed to trouble Everton
    • 19'
      Patient play from Everton here, but Newcastle are covering well and closing down the hosts' midfielders as soon as they get on the ball.
    • 21'
      A free-kick now in a dangerous position for Everton as Lukaku gets fouled on the edge of Newcastle’s area. The Belgium forward tries his luck with a curling effort, but it sails just over the crossbar.

    • 23'
      It was a fantastic bit of play from Everton, capped off by Cleverley's neat pass into the feet of Lennon, who beat Elliot all-ends-up with a sublime finish.
    • 23'
      GOOOOAAALLLLLLL!!! EVERTON TAKE THE LEAD! Well, the hosts have deserved that in all truth! It has been a slow start to the game, but Martinez’s men inject some spark into it with a sublime passing move that sees Oveido work it in-field to Cleverley. The former Manchester United midfielder prods it i
    • 26'
      LUCKY! Everton may have taken the lead, but they almost squandered their advantage immediately then! Newcastle broke forward down the left through Townsend, who lofted a looping cross into the box. Mori got under it, but miss-timed his clearance and the bounce fell to the feat of Wijnaldum, but the
    • 28'
      That’s better from Everton. Martinez’s side again make good headway down the left, with Barkley once more the architect as he drifts out wide. He attempts to find Lukaku with a dinked cross, but Mbemba recovers to intercept the delivery with a well-timed header.
    • 30'
      Promising attacking play once more from Everton, as McCarthy feeds Barkley in the centre. The England man finds himself in acres of space and wastes no time in driving at Newcastle’s back-line before laying it up to Cleverley, who attempts to combine with Lukaku, but the latter’s touch is poor and t
    • 33'
      Newcastle have endured a truly dreadful run of form against Everton in recent seasons, having lost six of their last eight Premier League meetings, and, so far, the visitors have done very little to suggest that they can buck that trend tonight.
    • 34'
      WELL WIDE! Newcastle finally have an effort on goal as Everton’s defence fail to clear a long ball and the rebound falls to Dummett. The full-back tries his luck with a wild effort on the volley, and it sails away for a goal-kick.
    • 36'
      WASTEFUL! What an error that was from Elliot, and it should have proved costly! The Newcastle shot-stopper failed to deal with a long ball upfield from Oviedo, instead attempting to head it away from danger rather than catch it. The loose ball falls straight to the feet of Barkley, but the Everton y
    • 38'
      It has been a measured and controlled performance from the hosts so far, and one that will please Martinez. Their defence, though relatively un-tested as of yet, has looked solid, while they have shown bright signs going forward - the build-up for Lennon’s strike being the perfect example.
    • 41'
      SUPERB FROM BARKLEY! The midfielder picks up possession in Newcastle’s area before jinking his way past two defenders and squaring a brilliant cross across the face of goal, but no Everton player had made the gamble to get on the end of it and tap home into an empty net.
    • 42'
      WHAT A CHANCE! Great defending from Coloccini, who dives forward to prevent Lennon drilling in his second of the night. The chance came from superb build-up down the right between Cleverley and Coleman, with the latter then picking out Everton’s goalscorer, but he could not find the finish on this o
    • 44'
      SI J. Lascelles SO T. Cleverley
    • 44'
      A first change of the night now then, and it is for Newcastle as Chancel Mbemba hobbles off injured. Jamal Lascelles, who scored against Watford last time out, is his replacement.
    • 46'
      SI R. Aarons SO T. Cleverley
    • 46'
      SI A. Koné SO T. Cleverley
    • 46'
      And Everton's substitution sees Romelu Lukaku, who struggled with a back injury after a hefty collision with Coloccini, makes way for Arouna Koné.
    • 46'
      We are back under way here at Goodison! Two changes at the break, with one for each side. The first of which sees Paul Dummett replaced by Rolando Aarons.
    • 48'
      Poor! Sissoko bursts forward on the counter-attack for Newcastle, squaring up Lennon before turning inside onto his left foot. The Frenchman attempts to pick out the run of Perez with a throughball, but the pass is over-hit and trickles through to Robles.
    • 50'
      That knock to Lukaku will be a real blow for the hosts, with the gulf in quality between the aforementioned Belgian and Kone already noticeable as the Ivorian fails to hold up a simple pass into his feet. Newcastle counter swiftly, with possession eventually being worked to Shelvey who tries his luc
    • 52'
      WHAT A MISS! Superb play from Barkley who finds Lennon with an inch-perfect pass. The winger drives into the area and drives a low left-footed effort on target, that Elliot does well to block. The rebound falls to Kone, but the former Wigan man can only skew his attempt well over the crossbar.
    • 53'
      CLOSE! That’s better from Kone, who tries to catch Elliot out with a low strike that fizzes across the face of goal. Barkley was again the instigator of the move, powering forward at pace before teeing up Everton’s front-man.
    • 54'
      Too much this time from Barkley! He again gets Everton on the front foot with a blistering run from deep, going on to combine with Kone on the edge of the area. The England man gets it back from his striker before attempting to flick it on to Lennon, but the pass is over-hit on this occasion.
    • 55'
      SI A. Mitrović SO T. Cleverley
    • 55'
      A third and final substitution, already, from Newcastle, as Henri Saivet is taken off, with Aleksandar Mitrović coming on. No debut for Doumbia, then!
    • 56'
      WHAT A SAVE! That is a top-class stop from Elliot, to deny what would have been an exquisite goal from Barkley! Oviedo set the midfielder up with a crisp ball in-field, and the 22-year-old went for target with a sublime curling effort that Newcastle’s goalkeeper somehow tipped onto the crossbar. Fun
    • 58'
      It has been a really strong start to the second half from Everton, who have come out with a renewed vigour and sense of entitlement since the restart. They are yet to extend their advantage, however, though Barkley was desperately unlucky not to do so with that sublime long-range strike.
    • 60'
      CROSSBAR! Another huge let-off for Newcastle! Cleverley puts in a delightful delivery from a free-kick on the left that Shelvey inadvertently turns towards his own goal, but the former Liverpool man’s header rattles off the woodwork.
    • 61'
      That’s a booking for Shelvey following a hefty challenge on Oviedo on the edge of Newcastle’s area. Cleverley again stands over the free-kick.
    • 62'
      ANOTHER SUPERB STOP! What a game Elliot is having! Cleverley goes for goal from the set-piece and the strike looks set to nestle in the bottom-left corner, but Newcastle’s shot-stopper somehow gets across to tip the ball onto the post. The rebound falls to Barkley, who tees up Funes-Mori, but the Ar
    • 64'
      A moment of worry there for Everton, as Jagielka concedes a corner with a poor header. Shelvey whips in a delivery into a dangerous area, which Robles only managers to punch half-clear, but Sissoko is unable to get any power on his close-range effort and the hosts’ goalkeeper recovers well to make a
    • 66'
      HOW DID HE MISS!? That was a sitter and Mitrovic has put it wide! Aarons put in a superb delivery from the right that leaves Funes-Mori flat-footed. The Serbian forward latches onto it in the centre of the six-yard box, but somehow turns his volley wide of the upright. The scores should have been le
    • 69'
      A promising period of pressing play from the visitors forces Everton back somewhat. Lennon does well to win the ball back off Aarons down the left, before showing his experience by shielding the ball and winning a free-kick off the youngster.
    • 71'
      That was a chance for Everton, but Barkley overplays ever so slightly! The midfielder played a smart one-two with Kone to drive into the box, only to get the ball trapped under his feet, allowing Coloccini to get the tackle in.
    • 73'
      Great skill from Barkley once again as the Everton playmaker gets himself out of trouble with a quite sublime dink over the head of Wijnaldum. Composed stuff from the England man, who has put in another quality performance this evening.
    • 74'
      Everton work a move out wide to Coleman, but the Irishman cannot retain possession. He tracks back following his error, only to pick up a booking for his troubles after being deemed to foul Perez.
    • 76'
      GOOD SAVE FROM ROBLES! Newcastle loft in a cross that lands at Wijnaldum’s feet at the back post. The former PSV captain volley’s it on target, but Everton’s goalkeeper stands firm to parry it clear.
    • 78'
      After a brief respite, Everton are really having to soak up some substantial pressure now, as Newcastle see two corners only just cleared by the hosts. Martinez’s side eventually manage to get themselves up field, with McCarthy winning a free-kick courtesy of a foul by Perez.
    • 80'
      That was a chance! One does well to tee up Barkley with a cushioned touch, and the youngster as always takes it in his stride. He drives towards the edge of the box, but once again delays his strike, and Lascelles is on hand to make the block.
    • 82'
      Wasteful from Townsend there! The former Tottenham winger will have to deliver a better standard of end-product if he is to live up to his potential here at Newcastle. He does well to jink his way to the by-line, but his resulting cross is a poor one and drifts harmlessly wide.
    • 84'
      Top defending from Oviedo there! The Costa Rican, so unlucky with injuries so far this season, has played well in place of Leighton Baines this evening and showed his quality there with a fine block to prevent Sissoko getting a cross in, before doing well to steward Townsend off the ball, which gets
    • 86'
      McCarthy, who has run himself ragged in the second half, wins a free-kick deep in Newcastle territory. Barkley whips it in, but the cross does not beat the first man. That’s disappointing!
    • 87'
      PENALTY TO EVERTON! Lennon does superbly down the right to graft his way into the area before being brought down by Aarons, and Pawson wastes no time in pointing to the spot.
    • 88'
      A stupid yellow card for Jamal Lascelles, who picks up a booking for attempting to put Barkley off in the wait for that penalty to be taken.
    • 88'
      GOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!! BARKLEY HAMMERS HOME FROM THE SPOT! It’s a cool finish from the midfielder, who sent Elliot the wrong way with a powerful penalty into the bottom-left corner. Everton 2-0 Newcastle!
    • 90'
      SO CLOSE! Barkley again takes on several Newcastle players before thumping an effort towards goal. It looks destined for the bottom corner, but a deflection off Coloccini sees it edge just wide of the left-hand upright. Unlucky!
