We didn’t expect much out of the game tonight with Goodison Park not being a happy hunting ground for Newcastle, but the Magpies came away with a 1-1 draw.
Rondon put Newcastle ahead after 19 minutes, and he was nicely set up by an excellent left-wing run and cross from Jacob Murphy, who had a good game.
But the home side were level after 38 minutes when Richarlison fired home from a right-wing corner that Newcastle should really have cleared.

And after some heavy late pressure from the Toffees, the Magpies could even have snatched the win with two minutes to go when Atsu was straight through on goal but shot straight at former Sunderland goalkeeper Pickford.
Nevertheless, this was an excellent point for Newcastle, and we hope we can get a win at home to Wolves on Sunday.
