How Wilson’s double for Newcastle Utd destroyed Ancelotti’s Everton strength

Everton missed the chance to return to the top of the Premier League as Callum Wilson scored twice to give Newcastle a 2-1 first win in three matches.

Former Bournemouth forward Wilson opened the scoring – converting a penalty he had won after being fouled by Andre Gomes – and then tapped in a second from Ryan Fraser’s looping cross.

The result means Carlo Ancelotti’s side remain second, three points behind Liverpool, while the Magpies move up to 10th.

After a largely uneventful first half, the game sparked into life in the second period.

And Newcastle, who had taken a point from their two previous matches, had Wilson to thank for their victory.

Steve Bruce’s side could have added to their tally but Sean Longstaff’s powerful close-range effort was brilliantly saved by Robin Olsen, starting in goal for Everton in place of England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s late goal was not enough to prevent Ancelotti from losing consecutive league games for the first time since September 2014, when he was in charge of Real Madrid.
