'A perfect performance' – Newcastle United new signing earns 10 in 3-1 win against Everton

Newcastle United came from behind to secure a vital three points against Everton with a 3-1 win at St James’s Park – but how did the players fare?

Two own goals in two minutes from Jamaal Lascelles and Mason Holgate at either end saw the sides go in level at the break.

Ryan Fraser gave The Magpies the lead after the restart with his first league goal for the club. Kieran Trippier then secured the three points with a stunning free-kick to make it 3-1 late on.

Eddie Howe made just one change from the side that beat Leeds United in their last Premier League outing as deadline day arrival Matt Targett replaced Paul Dummett at left-back.

New signings Dan Burn and Bruno Guimaraes were named on the bench for the crucial encounter against The Toffees.
