John Carver has stated that Newcastle started ‘brightly’ at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

United had a goalmouth scramble with a Williamson effort blocked on the line, possibly by an arm.

However, this is really clutching at straws as Newcastle were terrible for the next 89 minutes….:

“Even at 11 v 11 we were second best, we started brightly and had a chance of a penalty but we don’t get those so that is no surprise.

“We had our best chances when we went to down to 10 men and the loss of Fabricio Coloccini for the next three games is even more disappointing.

Studying angles;

“I’ve looked at it from four or five angles and I am not totally convinced.

“The reaction from the Everton players told me that it was something serious but when I have looked at it I wasn’t convinced.”
