    • - FT Newcastle 1-2 Everton. Victor Anichebe comes off the bench to score the winner as Everton come from behind to beat Newcastle 2-1 in a breathless contest at St James' Park.
    • 90'+4 Chance for Everton but Fellaini can't pick out Oviedo with his cut back.
    • 90'+2 Newcastle are dominating injury time but are not creating any clear chances. Everton defending very well.
    • 90' There will be six added minutes.
    • 88' Everton sub: Oviedo on, Jelavic off.
    • 86' Newcastle sub: Ranger on, Perch off.
    • 85' Marveaux has another effort blocked. This time Heitinga gets in the way.

    • 82' Big miss by Santon, who beats the offside trap but shoots tamely straight at Howard.
    • 81' Neville has blood pouring from his head and needs stitches by the looks of it. Anichebe looks a little shaken too. Newcastle fans don't seem to realise that both players are legitimately injured, although Neville is back on.
    • 80' Anichebe and Phil Neville have clashed heads... it looks nasty.
    • 79' Pienaar is booked for kicking the ball away.
    • 78' Newcastle sub: Sammy Ameobi on, Tiote off.
    • 76' But lightning doesn't strike twice, as Baines's delicate free-kick clears the wall but curls wide.
    • 75' Fellaini drives at goal, but is upended on the edge of the box by Tiote, and Baines is standing over the ball again...
    • 73' Good claim by Krul as he gathers off balance and under real pressure from a number of blue shirts.
    • 72' Atkinson has a word for Tiote and Anichebe, who were attempting to swap shirts at the corner.
    • 71' Fellaini almost catches Krul out with a well improvised flick that was dipping under the bar, but Krul tips over.
    • 70' Ameobi goes for goal from a long way out, but his rising drive goes high and wide.
    • 68' Cisse almost equalises! The striker's header comes back off Heitinga and straight back to him. Cisse stabs it back at goal, but Howard saves.
    • 67' Tiote is booked for a foul. His sixth of the season.
    • 66' Newcastle sub: Bigirimana on, Obertan off.
    • 64' Newcastle chance! Obertan drives into the box and almost catches Howard out with a cheeky effort to his near post, but Howard makes the stop.
    • 63' Newcastle clear their lines. Everton not committing as many men to their attacks now.
    • 62' Anichebe tries his luck from 30 yards, but his shot loops off Williamson and out for a corner.
    • 60' Twice in this match Newcastle have come close to scoring, and Everton have responded with a goal of their own.

    • 58' Everton sub: Anichebe on, Naismith off.
    • 57' Newcastle chance! Marveaux picks out Ameobi with a brilliant long ball that Ameobi takes down with a brilliant first touch, but then prods just wide.
    • 56' Marveaux makes a superb run forward but suddenly finds himself in the box and gives the ball straight to an Everton shirt.
    • 55' Anichebe is getting ready to come on for Everton. Naismith could be the man to make way.
    • 53' Everton win a corner and, after Coloccini and Jelavic are separated for some shirt tugging in the box, Baines's corner flies straight out of play.
    • 52' The free-kick is aimed at Fellaini, but he is penalised for a push on Williamson as he leaps high for the header.

    • 48' Heitinga drags down Ameobi on the edge of the box. He is booked and Newcastle have a free-kick.
    • 47' Early chance for Jelavic, but he's penalised for a push on Coloccini.
    • 46' SECOND HALF. Everton get us back underway.
    • - What are your thoughts on that half? Which way will it go in the second? Tweet me!
    • 45' HT Newcastle 1-1 Everton. Cisse's goal after a minute is cancelled out by Baines stunning free-kick. A breathless 45 minutes of football.
    • 44' Newcastle hanging on again now. That goal has really lifted the visitors and St James' Park has gone rather quiet.
    • 43' GOAL! Baines scores from the free kick! The left-back absolutely thumps the ball past Krul with a fearsome swerving effort. Breathtaking goal.
    • 41' Fellaini is fouled by Coloccini 30 yards from goal. It's a long way out but Baines is standing over it...
    • 40' Cisse is in the book for a late tackle on Baines.
    • 39' Phil Neville gets away with a clumsy challenge on Ameobi in the box. He gets the ball, but a bit of Ameobi too - although a penalty would have been harsh.
    • 38' Newcastle have steadied things now. Everton have enjoyed a strong 20 minutes or so but now the home side are finishing the half the stronger.
    • 36' Cisse plays a lovely first time pass into Ameobi's path, but he just over hits it and the ball skids off the surface and away from Ameobi.
    • 35' Fellaini slips the ball through to Naismith, but his first touch is too heavy and the ball goes out of play.
    • 34' Phil Neville gets away with an obvious handball. The home fans don't like that.
    • 33' Newcastle chance! Santon leaves Naismith for dead before delivering a perfect cross from the left, but Anita can't get on the end of it after sprinting forward to join the attack.
    • 31' Chance for Everton! Lovely move involving Baines and Pienaar, who shoots straight at Krul, who was quick off his line. The Dutchman then got up to deny Jelavic on the rebound.
    • 30' Half an hour gone and plenty to talk about. This has been a classic Premier League encounter so far.
    • 29' Perch hits the post for Newcastle! Anita picks him out with a perfect inswinging free-kick, but his header crashes back off the inside of the post. so close to 2-0.
    • 28' Naismith barges Santon and Newcastle have a free-kick in a dangerous area on the left wing.
    • 26' Cisse picks out Obertan with a sweeping ball forward, but the Frenchman is lacking support and is forced to play it back to keep possession.
    • 25' Everton have had 60% possession so far.
    • 24' Jelavic finds Fellaini with a brilliant flick-on, but Perch pinches his pocket.
    • 23' Everton have won back-to-back corners. Newcastle coming under big pressure now.
    • 22' Great chance for Everton on the counter-attack. Pienaar races down the left and sets up Fellaini, whose shot is blocked brilliantly by Santon.
    • 21' Naismith reaches Baines's pinpoint free-kick to the far post, but his downward header bounces straight into Krul's arms. Chance.
    • 19' Newcastle have just lost some of their early vigour. Everton starting to look comfortable.
    • 18' Coloccini dangerously lets the ball run back to Krul, with Fellaini lurking close by.
    • 17' Jelavic improvises his cross well and Perch can only clear for a throw.
    • 16' Everton are growing into the contest. Pienaar picks out Jagielka's marauding run down the right flank, but the centre-backs cross is, er, that of a centre-back.
    • 15' Baines lays the ball back to Pienaar, who sends a teasing ball into the box. But Krul reads it to claim ahead of Fellaini.
    • 14' Newcastle have started with real verve and energy. They want to make a point that they can thrive without Ba.
    • 13' Everton have been exposed down their right side two or three times already.
    • 12' Obertan races down the left wing and drills a low ball across the face of goal, but it's just too far ahead of Cisse.
    • 11' Fellaini gets a sight of goal, but Coloccini recovers to deny the Belgian.
    • 10' Breathless start to this one.
    • 9' Everton chance! A long ball forward almost finds Baines, but Jelavic didn't realise Baines was behind him and took it off his toes. Baines eventually has the shot, but Krul smothers it well.
    • 8' Baines swings the resulting corner into the danger area, but Newcastle hack it away.
    • 7' Great sabe by Krul! Baines bends his free kick around the wall but Krul gets across to make a superb one-handed save to turn around the post for a corner.
    • 6' Respite for Everton as Pienaar is fouled 25 yards from goal.
    • 5' Everton are all at sea. The Toffees just can't live with Newcastle at the moment.
    • 4' Almost a second for Cisse as Ameobi races down the left and flashes a low cross across the face of goal, with Cisse inches away from making contact.
    • 3' Awful goal to concede from an Everton point of view. Nobosy attacked the ball and Cisse just had to stretch his neck out and send a looping header over Howard.
    • 2' GOAL! Cisse has headed Newcastle ahead after Everton failed to deal with Tim Krul's long free-kick. Who needs Demba Ba anyway?
    • 1' KICK OFF. We are underway at St James's Park.
    • 19.55 The players are about to emerge from the tunnel at St James' Park. What's your prediction for this one? Tweet me!
    • 19.50 As for Everton, they travel to St James' Park knowing that their recent record there is poor, but David Moyes's side cannot afford many more slip-ups in the race for a Champions League spot.
    • 19.45 In losing a staggering game to Arsenal 7-3, they became the first side in Premier League history to lose back-to-back top-flight matches despite scoring three goals in each game - having also lost 4-3 to Manchester United on Boxing Day.
    • 19.40 2012 was a tale of two halves for Newcastle. For the first half they were superb, belying a wafer-thin squad to finish fifth in the league. But this campaign is not going as well and ever since manager Alan Pardew was handed his bumper contract extension until 2020 they have been in freefall.
    • 19.35 Newcastle will be looking to take advantage of Everton's leaky defence, but know that they possess a real threat in front of goal too. The Toffees have conceded in 15 consecutive Premier League games this season, the longest run of any side in the division. They have also scored in their last 17 league games, the best run in the top flight this season and their best since 24 in a row in 1985-86.
    • 19.30 The form book suggests an Everton win, particularly given the return of star man Marouane Fellaini. Alan Pardew's side have lost eight of their last 10 league fixtures, collecting six points out of 30. Meanwhile, defeat against Chelsea was only Everton's second loss in their last 17 league matches.
    • 19.25 But fellow midfielder Darron Gibson has been ruled out for a month with a thigh strain.
    • 19.20 Everton welcome back top scorer Marouane Fellaini after he completed a three-match suspension.
    • 19.15 Full-back Danny Simpson is out with a broken toe, while midfielder Yohan Cabaye and defender Steven Taylor are not fit enough for a first-team return.
    • 19.10 It is believed Ba's contract contains a clause which allows him to speak to other clubs in the event of a £7m bid. The Senegalese, who joined Newcastle from West Ham in June 2011, is currently joint-second top scorer in the Premier League with 13 goals.
    • 19.05 The big pre-match news is that Newcastle striker Demba Ba has been withdrawn from the squad after Chelsea triggered the release clause in his contract.
