GOAL! There's one back! A deflected Iwobi cross, and Calvert-Lewin beats Darlow to it and scores! Game on!


6 minutes to go in injury time...


Sigurdsson from range! But wide of the target from the Icelandic's half volley.


A chance for Calvert-Lewin, but he's foiled by Darlow.


GOAL! A scintillating break from Newcastle, with the blistering pace of Fraser burning past Mina, and the winger links up with his former Bournemouth team-mate Callum Wilson to prod home for 2-0!


Sigurdsson's deflected effort is straight down the throat of Darlow, as Isaac Hayden comes on for the hosts.


Everton still pushing away. There's no more throws of the dice left for Ancelotti, he's got to hope now that his side can whip something up out of nothing.


Sigurdsson over the free kick for Everton, and Michael Keane nods the ball over the bar.

More sustained pressure from Everton now. Newcastle happy to soak it up and let the Toffees try and swing balls in towards Calvert-Lewin aimlessly.


Niels Nkounkou shoots high and wide after a neat exchange with Bernard in the left half-space.


A really nice touch around the corner from the little Brazilian Bernard brings Everton a free kick, floated in by Sigurdsson, and flicked into the hands of Olsen by the head of Calvert-Lewin.

PENALTY! A low delivery into the near post toward the onrushing Wilson, who is clipped by Andre Gomes - penalty for the home side !


Magpies corner - Longstaff over it...


A cross from Jonjoe Kenny just pinched off Calvert-Lewin's head by Karl Darlow at the last; and gathered at the second attempt.


A flurry of crosses from Newcastle all nodded away by Everton heads, but the initial driving run from Allan Saint-Maximin could spell a more offensive mentality in this half from Newcastle.


Floated in towards Calvert-Lewin who knocks it down for Sigurdsson, but it's hacked away by Newcastle and Calvert-Lewin is down getting treatment on his face after a collision with Schar.

Here we go again!

  • End of 1st Half

It's half time. A terrible half of football, how can either side unlock this game?


Saint-Maximin is down after the challenge with Andre Gomes. Trouble for Newcastle.


Another Calvert-Lewin shot is charged down by a Newcastle body, but Everton keep the pressure on...but Nkounkou's cross is nodded away.


The ball breaks for Calvert-Lewin with a left-footed strike, but Lascelles blocks and Delph fires the ricocheted ball well over.


No. Lascelles has the ball drop his way, but not in a kindly manner and Olsen gathers.


We remain goalless here, but could Newcastle change that with a corner?


Everton corner. Captain Sigurdsson swings it in, but away by Schar.

Niels Nkounkou booked in the process, giving away the free-kick.


Pulled back by Longstaff, to Hendrick who strikes from range, but charged down.


CLOSE! Darlow's punch, and Newcastle breaking... and Saint-Maximin! Denied by Olsen... and a Magpies free-kick. A really good driving run from Almiron who evaded Gomes and Wilson weighted his pass wonderfully, but the Frenchman was thwarted by the Everton keeper.


A first corner! Everton's Sigurdsson to take.


Really not the best game to be watching for the neutral yet - no clear-cut chances for either side, and another quarter-chance if you will, goes begging after a positive drive from Doucoure and poor pass from Sigurdsson allows Longstaff to clear down field.


A really dire first half of football thus far. Neither side have really been able to keep possession to materialise a chance.


Everton are struggling to break down the Newcastle lines here - there's plenty of possession in front of the Magpies wall, but there's no-one offering a run in behind; and here we can see the problem of fielding five natural central midfielders


It's very interesting to note the dropping in of Doucoure and Delph in the full-back berths at present - really allowing for Nkounkou and Kenny to maintain the width and get into promising crossing positions to give Calvert-Lewin some service.


Neither side has really got into a good rhythm of yet - Everton not getting the ball anywhere near Calvert-Lewin, and Newcastle's patterns of play haven't been penetrating enough to bypass the Everton midfield.


Saint-Maximin really thrives in this system just behind the striker - he has the licence to roam when and where he pleases, dropping deep at times to get involved before suddenly exploding in behind or in the dribble.


A promising Newcastle move down the left is halted by a silly foul from Almiron on Doucoure.


Doucoure is very much in the role that he had at Watford... he is the number 10 now, with Sigurdsson drifting wide to create in the half-space. The Frenchman is there for more athleticism and dynamism in the press and the transition.


A cute flick around the corner from Sigurdsson is cut out by Lascelles, and Newcastle can come forwards... it's knocked forwards into the right-hand channel by Schar into the path of Wilson, who strikes over.


Everton the more ball-playing side in these first five minutes, looking to play out from the back, through midfield and through the Newcastle lines, with Gomes and Sigurdsson wanting to pick up space in the pockets.


Newcastle with a very direct mentality from the off here, looking for the threat of Wilson and Saint-Maximin in behind, willing to see if Michael Keane and Yerry Mina want to step in and try and play them offside.


A 4-2-3-1 for Everton - Gomes to the left where Richarlison would be, Doucoure off the right and Sigurdsson behind Calvert-Lewin. Delph and Allan the double pivot, allowing for Kenny and Nkounkou to push forwards from full-back.

  • 1st Half

I've channelled my inner Fabrizio Romano: Here we go!


A moment's silence for those we lost during the World Wars, and for the late Nobby Stiles. Lest we forget.


The players are out, the excitement builds.


FIve minute warning to kick off. Five minutes, I say.


20-year old Nkounkou is set to make his Premier League bow for the Toffees since his under-the-radar summer move, and after three impressive League Cup appearances for Everton, he's set to make his league debut.


It also must be noted that Everton are without their two primary full-backs Seamus Coleman and Lucas Digne today, and Ancelotti has brought in Jonjoe Kenny and Niels Nkounkou, with the two youngsters drafted in needing to cope with the threat of Saint-Maximin and Almiron either side.


Steve Bruce has acknowledged Everton's "strength in depth" and is "interested to see how [the Toffees] line up."


All eyes are on Everton's number nine - can he overtake Heung-Min Son in the top goalscorer charts by notching a couple today? The hotshot has seven goals to his name this term, and could well fancy his chances today, and will surely be raring to go after drawing a blank at St Mary's last time out.


Jonjo Shelvey could well be a big miss for the home side here, and his vision and deep-lying creativity seems to have been replaced by workaholics Sean Longstaff and Jeff Hendrick; so the onus again will be on Almiron and Saint-Maximin to provde the spark.


A big talking point here, though, will be the inclusion of Robin Olsen for his full Everton debut - in place of the under-fire Jordan Pickford, wjho drops to the bench as a result of his poor start to the campaign.


If Carlo Ancelotti were to mastermind a win today, Everton would leapfrog their city rivals Liverpool and reassert themselves as league leaders, if only on goal difference, whilst if Newcastle won, they could climb as high as 10th, realistically, but if they were to rack up a cricket score, then they could well replace Manchester City in 9th.


How will the Toffees fare without two of their talismanic front three - Richarlison and James Rodriguez are both sidelined, the Brazilian is suspended again and the Colombian injured, with perhaps Andre Gomes and Gylfi Sigurdsson operating a bit further forward as roaming 10's behind Dominic Calvert-Lewin. We shall wait and see.


It'll certainly be an interesting tactical prospect here - will Steve Bruce throw men behind the ball again and try and grind out a result on the break with the pace of Saint-Maximin, Almiron and Wilson? Or will the inclusion of Jacob Murphy on the right add more guile and attacking impetus to the Magpies?


Everton are in their 4-3-2-1: Olsen, Kenny, Mina, Keane, Nkounkou, Doucoure, Allan, Delph, Gomes, Sigurdsson, Calvert-Lewin.


The teams are in, and the hosts are looking like this: Darlow, Murphy, Schar, Lascelles, Fernandez, Lewis. Longstaff, Hendrick, Almiron, Wilson, Saint-Maximin.
