Newcastle United 0-0 Everton: Match Reaction

A disappointing away day for Everton saw a threadbare side reduced by the loss to injury of Mikel Arteta and Victor Anichebe, and despite the first half dismissal of Kevin Nolan for the Magpies, the deadlock remained unbroken by either side.

It ended up a comfortable day for Everton’s back four as the Toffees controlled the game even before the sending off, but Newcastle quickly reverted to all-out-defencive-mode and Everton lacked the imagination and creativity to break them down.

Also after the click through there’s an excellent photograph of Nolan’s terrible tackle on Anichebe – it’s a bit flinch-inducing so be warned!
