Everton secured a crucial three points in their battle to avoid relegation from the Premier League as they beat Newcastle United 1-0 on Thursday night.

Alex Iwobi found the back of the net deep in second-half stoppage time to send the Everton supporters into a frenzy on a chaotic night at Goodison Park.

An uneventful first half burst into life at the interval, which was sparked by a fan tying themselves to the goalpost with a cable tie around their throat, leading to a seven-minute stoppage.

The first major chance of the night fell Newcastle's way after 70 minutes, as Bruno Guimaraes unleashed a fierce effort inside the box which Asmir Begovic tipped wide.

With 83 minutes on the clock, Allan Saint-Maximin broke forward but was scythed down by a vicious challenge from Allan, which saw the midfielder shown a red card after a VAR review.

But deep into stoppage time, Dominic Calvert-Lewin slipped Iwobi through, who lashed home a left-footed strike into the bottom corner.

Broken hand

Such was the magnitude of the win, Everton boss Frank Lampard revealed he broke his hand during the celebrations.

'I've broken my hand in the celebrations," Lampard told Amazon Prime. "My bones must be going soft, I don't remember the moment.

"It was an amazing night and we need those nights. Spirit and togetherness, the players stood up tonight. It was not a night for quality or calm. It means so much to the stadium we all felt that. I wanted to use the atmosphere.

"Everton fans wanted to see passion. We proved what we could be tonight. I don' t think it is a red card. It is a yellow, yes, is it a strong yellow? Possibly. But that isn't a clear error. It was the wrong decision and we lose Allan for three games."
