0-1. Jamaal Lascelles is the unlucky man who puts it into his net, as the Magpies fail to defuse a short snap pass following a ranged delivery, with the ball bouncing off a host of players around the six-yard area.
1-1. From zero to hero for Jamaal Lascelles, who lifts his head to meet a corner. It hits the crossbar and crashes into the back of Mason Holgate, flying off him to best Jordan Pickford at close-range.
2-1. Oh, this is not one to watch back for Everton, and they will know it. The Magpies get the cut-back through Saint-Maximin, and Keane’s glancing header only helps carry it to Fraser, who side-foots an effort through to ricochet off Pickford and in.
3-1. The right-back steps up to the set-piece over 20 yards out and delivers a beauty, drifted over the wall and in at the low near-right post. St James’ Park erupts with joy.
