FREE TO WATCH: Highlights from Newcastle’s win at Everton in the Premier League

Callum Wilson’s second-half goals gave Newcastle a vital first win in nine Premier League games to ease the pressure on Steve Bruce as they beat a flat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park.

Wilson, who had missed Newcastle’s two best chances either side of half-time, scored his 50th Premier League goal with a fabulous, inch-perfect header from Jonjo Shelvey’s corner (73), a deserved opener for Bruce’s side.

Wilson got his and Newcastle’s second in stoppage time, finishing low past Jordan Pickford when one-on-one as Everton were caught high up the pitch looking for a leveller (90+3).

There have been strong calls for Bruce’s sacking among Newcastle fans of late, but this was a rare positive performance and lifts Newcastle eight points clear of the drop zone, albeit having played one more game than 18th-placed Fulham.
