Everton Statistics Equal Moral Victory For Newcastle

8 years ago

The statistics from the Everton v Newcastle make interesting reading, especially for the Bitter Blues who are still moaning no doubt.

Undoubtedly Everton should have been out of sight in the first half but United clung on and ended up the better team in the second-half, such is football.

What came out of of the Everton match according to BBC Statistics though is the following;

Possession                    NUFC 50%     Everton 50%

Total Shots                   NUFC 11         Everton 17

Shots On Target           NUFC  7        Everton 10

Corners                          NUFC 3          Everton 3

Offside Decisions                 All Correct

Ref Making Shocking
Decision Not To Play            Guilty!

Amazingly, Newcastle’s second half recovery meant they finished up equal in terms of possession overall and almost as many shots on targets, the same number of corners as well.

When you add in a backdrop of an Everton team who had won their last six at home (incl 1-0 v Manchester United) against a Newcastle team missing arguably their three best players in Coloccini, Krul and Tiote, plus a fourth automatic first team regular in Simpson, then I think it is fair to say it was clear moral victory for the away team.
