Everton vs Newcastle – Newcastle scored six goals in their rout of top-four opponents Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon, finding the ideal method to recover from their agonizing 3-0 loss to Aston Villa in Birmingham.
When the Magpies went on break with a 5-0 lead against the Spurs four days prior, they produced their finest half of the entire season.
Numerous others scored goals, but Alexander Isak stood out as the only man to score twice. Fabian Schar, who had a few assists over the weekend, is also noteworthy.
This was a huge six-pointer for Eddie Howe and his team, who are now sixth position with two games remaining, six points ahead of Spurs.

The Toffees have lost their last five league games, dropping them once more to the bottom three of the standings.
On Saturday afternoon in the capital, Sean Dyche’s team drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace while allowing the hot-shot Glaziers just two shots on goal.
