New Everton boss Frank Lampard lost his first game in charge as Newcastle produced one of the comfortable football scores of the midweek action in the Premier League. Jamaal Lascelles scored his own goal in the 36th minute before Mason Holgate returned the favor with one of his own one minutes later. Ryan Fraser gave the home side their first lead in the 56th minute before Kieran Trippier sealed the three points in the 80th minute.

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe: “It is a big result for us because it was back-to-back wins. Consecutive wins in the Premier League are rare – they can change your status and elevate the club. We have to stay calm and focus on the next game. There were lots of different things [that were pleasing] – coming from a goal down, the spirit in the group, the togetherness, and the fight was shown on the pitch.
Everton manager Frank Lampard: “It was a difficult game. The performance, after a good performance on Saturday, wasn’t at the levels that we want. We get in front and then concede quickly, inviting pressure. I think we have to be balanced about it. I’ve been here a week, we’ve come to a very difficult match against Newcastle.”
