Newcastle United are beating Everton 1-0 at half-time in the Premier League at St James' Park - here are the player ratings from the match so far.

Eddie Howe made four changes to the side that beat West Ham United 4-3 on Saturday. Jamaal Lascelles and Tino Livramento dropped out of the starting line-up due to injury and Anthony Gordon missed out against his former club due to suspension.

Miguel Almiron also dropped out of the squad due to injury as Lewis Hall, Elliot Anderson, Emil Krafth and Harvey Barnes came into the starting line-up. Newcastle went into the match looking to pick up consecutive wins for the first time in 2024 while Everton were looking to end a Premier League club record 12 game run without a win.

Newcastle opened the scoring after 15 minutes as Harvey Barnes' lofted ball found Alexander Isak, who worked his way into the box before finding the bottom right corner of the goal with his 19th of the season in all competitions.

The Magpies had chances to extend their lead before half-time but the scoreline remained 1-0 as both sides went in at the break.
