Everton had been plunged into the bottom three of England's top flight by a 10-point deduction last month for breaching the league's financial rules. But they responded impressively with back-to-back wins to climb up to 17th in the standings, one point above the drop zone. The Merseyside Club registered a commanding victory in the Everton vs Newcastle fixture.

Three late second-half goals from Dwight McNeil, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Beto sealed the victory against Newcastle at Goodison Park. Newcastle had beaten Manchester United 1-0 last weekend but missed the chance to move within a point of fourth-place Manchester City.

Everton got their lead in the 79th minute when McNeil drove into the box and fired a left-footed shot that deflected into the corner beyond goalkeeper Martin Dubravka. Doucoure doubled Everton's lead seven minutes later and Beto made it 3-0 in the 96th minute.

Without the 10-point deduction, Everton would be 10th and just six points behind seventh-place Newcastle. After Thursday's win, they are 10 places below Eddie Howe's team.
