London - Newcastle maintained their superb start to the Premier League campaign on Saturday, downing Everton 2-1 at St James Park to move up to second place in the table.

The Magpies -- who remain unbeaten after 11 games -- sealed their third consecutive league victory courtesy of a John Heitinga own goal and a spectacular Ryan Taylor volley.

Everton pulled one back through Jack Rodwell on the stroke of half-time but the Toffees were unable to salvage a positive result after the break.

The win means Newcastle have made their best start to a season since the 1996-1997 campaign, when they went on to finish second.

Manchester United will reclaim second place later Saturday if they defeat Sunderland at Old Trafford.

The result piled the pressure on Everton manager David Moyes, whose side have now lost six of their 10 games this season.

The Merseysiders are languishing five places off the foot of the table, just four points off the relegation zone.

In other games Saturday, leaders Manchester City face QPR at Loftus Road in the late kick-off, Arsenal face West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates and Chelsea travel to Blackburn.

Liverpool face newly promoted Swansea at Anfield, while Aston Villa take on Norwich.
