Everton’s boss Marco Silva has hailed Everton’s reaction to the shock of retrogressing behind Newcastle United but sad his side couldn’t utilize a chance created by Richarlison to strike a goal

Newcastle’s striker Salomon Rondon finished at Jacob Murphy’s left-wing to give their rival a 19th-minute lead.
Everton had many chances of scoring more goals but they were only able to draw the match 1-1

“In the first half we performed better but the second half not so well,” said Silva via club’s official website.

“We reacted well when we conceded the goal and then we had a big chance to score with Cenk. We also had a big chance with Gylfi.”

John Collins praises Andre Gomes

The Everton footballer believes his teammate can be key for the club's next months in the 2018-2019 EPL season.

“But in the second half we were slower… and we didn’t create enough chances to change the result.”

“If the chance for 2-1 [Dubravka’s stop from Tousn] had gone in, the game would have been different, for sure.”

“Our opponent would have played a different way because they came here with one thing in their mind – to keep strong defensive organisation, with nine, 10 players always behind the ball. And they achieved what they wanted.”
