Newcastle United defeated Everton 3-2 tonight in the English Premier League thanks to goals by two goals Salomon Rondon and one by Ayoze Perez.

Newcastle United beat Everton 3-2 tonight in the English Premier League.

The result pushed Everton further down in the table with 37 points, after only ten wins, seven draws and 13 defeats.

And for Dominic Calvert-Lewin the team’s performance was a big disappointment.

“It is extremely disappointing, we were so comfortable in the first half but did not stick to the game plan after half-time,” said Calvert-Lewin to the club’s official website.

“We knew they would come out fast [after the break] and it was disappointing to not see the game out.”

“We were in control but stopped doing the things which earned us that two-goal cushion,” he added.

“Once they scored, the momentum of the game changed and we cannot let that happen.”

“We should have gone on to score the third goal and after the first-half performance it looked like we might,” he continued.

“I know it will have been tough for the travelling fans to watch and it was extremely disappointing for us.”

The footballer scored the first goal for his team, but this was not enough to prevent the defeat.

“I definitely feel I have done okay in the past few games and I got on the scoresheet – but it is in vain today because we did not get the three points,” added Calvert-Lewin.

“The result is what matters and although it is nice to get on the scoresheet, we did not get the win.”

“All of us have to look at our performances and see where it went wrong,” he added.

“After a good first half it is a disappointing way to end the game and we can only look to put it right next week [against Chelsea at Goodison Park on Sunday].”
