    Time:90'
    • Everton
    • Newcastle United
    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this and every Premier League goal from 00:01 on Monday (UK time). Thanks for joining me!
    • 90+5' There goes the final whistle! A 3-1 win for Everton with Cahill off the park.
    • 90+4' Cahill has been sent off for something or other with Cabaye also going to be booked. Bit of bedlam here. He has been sent off for grabbing Cabaye by the neck.
    • 89' We are into four minutes of time added on....
    • 88' Gutiérrez blocks the cross by Baines. Almost a fourth goal for Everton. Almost but not quite.
    • 87' So unlucky again for Gibson as he crashes a shot wide of goal. He has fired in some superb shots today.
    • 86' Distin may be playing his last game for Everton today as his contract is up in the summer.
    • 85' Closing moments of this match as Distin rises to head out of his box with another powerful header.
    • 84' Newcastle fans continue to sing out loud. They are going to be in the Europa League despite this result.
    • 83' Marveaux with a superb cross to the back post, but Distin is there to make the clearance. Excellent piece of defending.
    • 82' Tony Hibbert finally scores….but into his own net. It was his second career Premier League own goal. He has never scored a goal in the right end in the division.
    • 81' Jelavic departs for Everton to a standing ovation. On comes Stracqualursi.
    • 80' Krul keeps out a blistering free-kick from Gibson before the ball lands back in his paws from Cahill's effort. We remain at 3-1 in Everton's favour.
    • 79' Change for Newcastle as Tiote departs to be replaced by Ameobi.
    • 78' Fellaini fires a shot at goal from outside of the area. Easy take for Krul in the visiting goal.
    • 77' Distin makes sure that Cisse can't elude him in the box. Solid piece of defending.
    • 76' Newcasle haven't give up the ghost as Howard claws out a header by Cisse. Claims that it went over the line from Ryan Taylor's cross, but nothing doing.
    • 75' Time running down for Newcastle. Arsenal and Spurs are winning so won't make much difference in the grand scheme of things.
    • 74' Cisse guilty of pushing Hibbert in the box. Ball back with Howard. Free-kick as Jagielka hammers it long down the park.
    • 73' Everton have won on the final day for the past four seasons, a record only Manchester United can match. But there won't be similar hysteria today.
    • 72' Another change for Everton as Tim Cahill is wheeled on to take over from Phil Neville.
    • 71' Was perhaps the only way Newcastle were going to get a goal this afternoon.
    • 70' GOAL! An own goal by Hibbert as he nods the ball beyond Howard. A 3-1 lead now for the home side.
    • 69' Cayabe decides to try his luck from distance, but Howard takes no chances as he palms the ball wide of goal.
    • 68' Offside flag goes up against Cisse after Ryan Taylor tried to pick him out.
    • 67' A change coming for Everton as Distin is wheeled on for Heitinga. A standing ovation from the fans.
    • 66' Taylor looking for Cisse in the middle, but an offside flag goes up. Everton fans in full voice.
    • 65' Awful defending it must be said from Gibson's free-kick. This season is going out in a whimper for Newcastle. All over the show at the back as ex-Everton boss Joe Royle liked to say.
    • 64' GOAL! Everton lead 3-0. Heitinga pops up unmarked to head home only his second Premier League goal from close range.
    • 63' Suddenly Newcastle find a way through to goal as Ba forces Howard to make a superb stop.
    • 62' Newcastle don't look like they are going to cut open Everton any time soon. Ba's effort blocked by Jagielka.
    • 61' Jelavic complained that he was being hauled back by Williamson. Seems to be a decent shout, but the referee disagrees. Would have been a penalty.
    • 60' Howard seems to have some sort of muscle injury. Bit of a delay in the match for treatment with 30 minutes or so to go.
    • 59' Ben Arfa throws in a couple of cross balls. Bit disappointing as Howard collects the second one. Looks like Howard may be heading off here.
    • 58' Jagielka now taking the goalkicks for the home side with Howard out of commission due to injury.
    • 57' Howard looks to be struggling with some sort of leg knock. Gibson brings out an excellent save from Krul in the Newcastle goal.
    • 56' Cabaye brings down Pienaar and the home side have a free-kick 25 yards from goal. Chance to rest Krul here.
    • 55' Baines throws over an excellent cross, but Krul dives on the ball to deny the visiting side.
    • 54' A crowd of 39,517 watching this one today. Has been a good day out for the home fans.
    • 53' Jelavic wallops a shot wide of goal. Was a chance for the forward, but not taken.
    • 52' Newcastle have never come from behind to win a game under Alan Pardew.
    • 51' Ryan Taylor drives a shot off Heitinga from outside the area. Newcastle have picked up the pace in this second period. Couldn't get any worse than the first period.
    • 50' Cisse tracks back to win the ball from Osman. Fine piece of teamwork by Cisse.
    • 49' Ben Arfa is not having his most productive of afternoons for the visiting side today. A bit of a struggle for the midfielder.
    • 48' Golden chance for Cisse at the outset of this second half. What a chance that is, but the forward mishits his shot as it falls wide.
    • 47' Ryan Taylor and Sylvain Marveaux are on for Newcastle in place of Perch and Santon. No surprise there.
    • 46' We are ready to go at the start of the second half. Everton get the ball rolling.
    • 45+3' The whistle sounds for the break. A 2-0 lead for Everton at half-time. Meanwhile, Cabaye goes to give the ball boy a hug at the break after pushing him over. A forgettable first half for Newcastle.
    • 45+2' Baines is booked for a late shoulder challenge on Gutierrez.
    • 45+1' Ben Arfa lifts the free-kick straight out of play. What a wretched delivery. Sums up a pretty forgettable first half for them.
    • 44' We are into three minutes of time added on in this half.
    • 43' Fellaini deemed to be guilty of fouling Guitierrez as we headed for the break.
    • 42' Cisse thumps a shot wide of goal. Great chance, but he slices it wide. Expected that to hit the back of the net from the edge of the area. Not his day so far.
    • 41' Newcastle trying to get on the ball to string together a few passes, but Everton are tracking their runners with some relish.
    • 40' Fine piece of defending by Coloccini to win the ball from Jelavic. Superb play again involving Fellaini and Jelavic.
    • 39' Fellaini is back on his feet and looking back to his brightest. He has been a real handful today.
    • 38' Decent play by Hibbert to win the ball for the home side. Pardew continues to make notes on the side of the pitch.
    • 37' Alan Pardew’s side have kept five clean sheets in their last seven Premier League matches, but seem to be all over the place today.
    • 36' Gibson hammers a shot straight down the middle of the goal and into the arms of Krul. Some really neat football being play by Everton.
    • 35' Fellaini down needing a spot of treatment after Osman dragged a shot wide of goal.
    • 34' Tiote lifts the ball out of play under pressure. Everton enjoying almost 60 per cent of possession in this match. Not how Alan Pardew saw the afternoon working out at 3pm.
    • 33' Chance for Gutierrez at the other end. The possibilities opened up for him there at the edge of the home box, but he screwed the shot wide. Should have done better.
    • 32' Cracking effort from Gibson as he lets fly from distance. Inces wide of Krul's right-hand post.
    • 31' Tiote clips Pienaar from the back. Late challenge as Everton continue to ease themselves up the park.
    • 30' Last season’s win at Goodison Park ended a run of seven games without a victory away at Everton for Newcastle. Doesn't look like they will be emulating that result today.
    • 29' Brilliant cross by Baines after some superb build-up play, but Krul is on hand to collect the loose ball.
    • 28' Another goal with West Brow and Arsenal level at 2-2. Won't matter unless Newcastle drag themselves level.
    • 27' This match threatening to boil over here as the referee speaks to Coloccini and Neville about their conduct.
    • 26' GOAL! Jelavic scores for Everton. Newcastle all over the place at the back. Krul made a stunning save, but the forward nailed the rebound for a 2-0 lead. Bad call though by the referee as he used his arm.
    • 25' Cabaye has just pushed a ball boy before snatching the ball off him. The home fans furious about that. Not sure what was going through the Newcastle player's mind there.
    • 24' Ben Arfa has not really got going here as Baines makes a superb tackle. This match continues to be played at a frantic pace.
    • 23' Pienaar slides the ball into the path of Jelavic, but Coloccini is there to make the intervention.
    • 22' Almost a second goal for the home side, but not quite. Everton win another corner here to be floated in by Osman. Easy enough take for Krul.
    • 21' Pienaar drives a shot against the outside of a post after a Baines free-kick had caused havoc in the area.
    • 20' Baines with a fine cross into the middle. Jelavic just offside as he raced away too soon from Coloccini.
    • 19' Everton have won on the final day for the past four seasons, a record only Manchester United can match.
    • 18' Cruel blow for Newcastle fans, but Williamson was guilty of failing to close down space quickly enough. A setback then in the visiting side's push for a win.
    • 17' GOAL! Pienaar sends a shot swirling into the net from distance. Ball deflects off Williamson before flying over Krul. Massive deflection and the home side have the lead.
    • 16' It is all going on in these opening 15 minutes or so as Krul launches a goalkick down the pitch.
    • 15' The Newcastle fans suddenly in real good voice. West Brom lead Arsenal 2-1. What they would give for their own goal now.
    • 14' Remember you can keep an eye on what is going on this afternnon with all our matches LIVE. All 10 Premier League matches LIVE
    • 13' Neville picks out Fellaini with an excellent cross. Header just floats over the bar from inside the visiting area.
    • 12' Cisse underneath another long ball from the back. But it just hits off his chest before wheeling out. Better news for the visiting side. West Brom 1-1 Arsenal.
    • 11' Another stupid tackle in this game as Tiote takes out Fellaini with a late tackle from behind. No lack of fervour early on here. He is booked.
    • 10' Foul given against Fellaini for a late challenge on Williamson. The Everton midfielder not to happy with that call.
    • 9' Santon throws in a ball from out wide. Ball swirling in the wind, but Howard grabs it under pressure from Ba. Right idea by Ba.
    • 8' Heitinga is going to be booked here for a crunching two-footed tackle on Cisse. Lucky to avoid a straight red for that one. Pretty wretched tackle.
    • 7' Long ball down the park by Krul. Wind carries that some distance. Cisse almost on the end of it, but Howard watches the ball like a hawk to collect.
    • 6' Arsenal lead West Brom 1-0 and Spurs are one up on Fulham. Not the best of starts for Newcastle on the day.
    • 5' Demba Ba hasn't scored since February. Blasts an effort well over the bar from distance.
    • 4' Nikica Jelavic has scored seven goals in his last seven Premier League games for Everton. Not only Cisse who is catching fire this term.
    • 3' Osman tries to pick out Jelavic. Just too much pace on the pass as Krul comes off his line to collect the loose ball.
    • 2' Howard makes a save from Coloccini in the opening seconds. Seemed to hit off the frame of Cisse who didn't know much about it. Lovely free-kick by Ben Arfa.
    • 1' We are off and running then here.
    • 14.57 Excellent day for football. Bit windy. Pitch looks ideal. What a chance here for Newcastle to force their way into the top four in the table.
    • 14.55 Read about the last meeting of these sides back in November... Taylor wonder goal sinks Everton
    • 14.50 Odds for this match: Everton 11/10, Newcastle 12/5, Draw 5/2
    • 14.45 Striker Papiss Cisse has scored 13 goals in 13 Premier League games for the Magpies.
    • 14.40 Newcastle are hoping to become the first team from outside Manchester, Liverpool or London to finish the season in the top four for the first time in 11 years, since Newcastle themselves finished third in 2002-03.
    • 14.35 Newcastle need to win this match and hope that Arsenal lose to West Bromwich or Spurs fail to overcome Fulham to keep alive their hopes of third or fourth in the table. In the unlikely event of a win and Arsenal and Spurs losing, Alan Pardew's team can finish third.
    • 14.30 Newcastle boss Alan Pardew will once again be without full-back Danny Simpson for Sunday's final Premier League trip to Everton. The full-back will miss out with the ankle problem which has sidelined him for the last two games, while striker Leon Best will also not travel because of a thigh strain. Midfielder Sammy Ameobi (knee) is stepping up his training and only central defender Steven Taylor (Achilles) is still on the long-term injury list.
    • 14.25 Everton welcome back Leighton Baines, Phil Neville and Darron Gibson. Left-back Baines has been out for a month with a groin injury while utility man Neville and midfielder Gibson missed last week's draw at Wolves with unspecified knocks. Midfielder Jack Rodwell (hamstring) and forward Victor Anichebe (groin) are both missing.

  1. Cuttlefish, Yes we got beat, but where did we finish?­ 5th, where did Sunderland finish? 13th. That is awful.­ Bottom half of the table, and worse than we did on our­ promotion season. Seriously you come on here to gloat!!­ You sad mackems make us Newcastle fans laugh out loud.

    From Cards Fan, on Mon 14 May 12:25
  2. Anonymous, hmm can't even use a nickname. Newcastle­ no doubt will see one or two players leave, but then­ will be replaced. No player has said they want to­ leave, in fact most have said they want to stay.­ However, we do know our chairman has a history of­ selling if the price is right, but then so do other­ clubs. Hopefully, this time he will fight the urge to­ sell our top players.

    From Cards Fan, on Mon 14 May 12:23
  3. I guess next season will be a lot of move out player­ from Newcastle like Demba ba, Papiss cisse, Ben Arfa, n­ maybe Tim krull... At least thats what Newcastle can­ do feed another club for cash...

  16. I see Tom has decided Newcastle are everyones second­ team, what a deluded chump he is. Todays result­ dosen't lie, but the position of their place in the­ league is a lie and one of the biggest flukes in the­ business.

    From DEREK, on Sun 13 May 17:13
  17. I was really looking forward to wearing my vintage­ Newcastle Brown shirt next year and explaining to my­ fellow Canadians that there are other British teams­ that play in the Champions League besides Chelsea, Man­ U. and Arsenal. Most Canucks don't even realize­ there is a competition for the top four spots since­ they have been locked down for so long. Maybe next­ year. Away the lads!.

    From Tom, on Sun 13 May 17:11
  18. Anthony -63- did you write that before the OG? cos I­ was with you 100% until 74 mins - Now it doesnt seem­ such a great idea, maybe if we're still 2 ahead­ & the pen is in injury time. Gutted for Tony­ Hibbert tho, he doesn't desaerve to be remembered­ just for never scoring

    From Michael, on Sun 13 May 16:55
  19. Well done Everton, a well deserved win today.

    From Rich_82, on Sun 13 May 16:55
  20. Newcastle you have been fantastic entertainment this­ season, it's a shame it couldn't be a fairytale­ ending for you, but you are everybodies second team in­ the country now for sure. If Ashley and Pardew can­ maintain their investment banking approach to football,­ and sell high, and buy quality low... then I think­ Newcastle can be much more than a one season wonder. ­ I think the key now is Newcastle don't get to big­ for their boots, they sell maybe one or two of their­ now very high priced players, and in return, they wheel­ and deal and bring in 4,5 players to strengthen the­ squad, all with potential, and they bank the rest of­ the cash. If I were Ashley or Pardew right now...­ I'd be seriously considering selling Krul who has a­ value of about 15-18 million, and you can replace­ keepers easier, a cheap one like Kuzcak from United who­ has ability, or Joe Lewis who has something to prove­ and can step up. With that 15-18 million, I'd try­ and sign maybe Victor Moses for a good 6-8 million,­ he's a player whose value could rocket. I'd try­ to get in Dempsey or Hoilett on a free, those would be­ fantastic signings, but tough. Soloman Kalou would also­ be very good on a free. And then I'd look to sign a­ big central defender on the cheap, but plenty of­ potential, maybe one of these obscure French players­ the Toon are so great at signing.
