Comments:

League position: 10th In ending a run of 16 Premier League away games without a win since 21 January 2017, Everton had now taken ten points in their last four Premier League games; one more than in their previous 12 games. In his 100th appearance for the Toffees in all competitions, Wayne Rooney had now scored more goals in the Premier League against Newcastle United (15) than any other team. Recently appointed former Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce had now won four of his 12 Premier League games at St James' Park as a visiting manager.
