After unmarked Papiss Cisse's looping header gave Newcastle the lead after only 72 seconds at St. James' Park, Everton leveled through Leighton Baines' thunderbolt of a free kick in the 43rd that swerved beyond goalkeeper Tim Krul.

Newcastle stayed in 15th place, two points above the relegation zone.
