In recent seasons, Newcastle United has hardly, if ever, suffered a comprehensive defeat. And it required a late surrender at Goodison Park for the hosts Everton to defeat the Magpies.


Three puzzling mistakes from one of Eddie Howe’s top players Although it wasn’t like United had done enough to win the game themselves up until that point, Kieran Trippier gave the game away to the Toffees.


Here, we examine the key points for United that went wrong, beginning with the performance of their right-back.



On December 07, 2023, in Liverpool, England, during the Everton FC vs. Newcastle United Premier League match at Goodison Park, Jack Harrison of Everton runs with the ball under pressure from Kieran Trippier of Newcastle United.

Unusual Trippier

Mr. Reliable of Newcastle United for a long time. As the clock ran out, the seasoned defender severely hurt his team by making THREE mistakes that resulted in goals.


For a player who has reflected on his greatest moments, it was incredibly out of character.


The defender gave Everton the ball for two of the goals, and for the third, he played substitute Beto onside while sitting far behind his teammates in the back.


Trippier, who at the end apologized to the away fans, will definitely remember this one.


hurried and careless

Newcastle appeared to try everything, especially in the first forty-five minutes, but it was all in vain. All of it appeared hurried and careless, but in reality, the game was open for grabs—that is, if even a subpar Magpies showed up.


Strangely, despite the fact that three goals were scored after the break, United most likely looked more likely to break the tie in that half. OK, up until the errors started to appear.


Hard to dismantle Everton

The goal for the hosts was to contain Newcastle, and they accomplished it almost flawlessly.


Seamus Coleman and Ashley Young, who is typically a full-back, combined on the right side to great effect, largely suppressing the usually explosive left side of the Magpies.


United had limited space to maneuver in the midfield. It was your standard Sean Dyche kind of show.


‘Off day’ for Anthony Gordon

Calling him out for a minor setback seems foolish because he has been so good and has set such high standards for himself. But at his old house, Anthony Gordon wasn’t quite the same person.


Did he become a little overwhelmed by the occasion? ‘Gordon – what’s the score?’ was presumably what Everton supporters were thinking. jibe, or did you just have a bad day in front of the goal? In any case, he had ample opportunities to win it for United but was unable to do so.


Gordon has been brought up, so it only seems right to include the other two frontmen as well, as Miguel Almiron and Alexander Isak both performed far below expectations.


Day-by-day troubles persist

On their travels, the Magpies are nowhere near as good as they have been at home.


They have only triumphed once in the Premier League this year, and that victory came at Sheffield United with great gusto.


If they are to remain challenging, that has to change. Spurs this Sunday?


That needs to change if they’re to keep challenging. Spurs on Sunday? We certainly hope so.
