Back in Tyne: Five fantastic wins against Everton

Ahead of Newcastle United's Premier League clash with Everton on Sunday afternoon (kick-off 2pm GMT), we take a look at some of the Magpies' most memorable matches against the Toffees...

SHEARER! (2002/03)

Newcastle snatched a dramatic 2-1 victory at St. James' Park in a game that will live long in the memory for Alan Shearer's sensational volley - one of the prolific forward's very best goals out of the 206 he scored in a black and white shirt.

Everton led through Kevin Campbell's strike but the Merseyside club were forced to play for over an hour with ten men following Joseph Yobo's red card.

With the Toffees appearing to be heading towards a win, Shola Ameobi's headed flick fell into the path of Shearer, who hit an unstoppable first-time effort beyond Richard Wright.

There was late drama to follow as Craig Bellamy's shot from a tight angle took a deflection from Li Tie to seal three points in the 89th minute.

Ayoze's brace seals memorable comeback (2018/19)

United's recent home victory against the Toffees served up a five-goal thriller as Ayoze Pérez's late double saw Newcastle come from two goals down to seal a thrilling 3-2 win at St. James' Park.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin put the visitors ahead before United were awarded a penalty after Jordan Pickford's foul on Salomón Rondon but the former Sunderland goalkeeper saved Matt Ritchie's resulting spot kick before Richarlison doubled the Toffee's lead minutes later.

However, a spirited second half display from the Magpies saw Rondón halve the deficit with a well taken volley before Ayoze Pérez levelled the clash after Miguel Almirón's strike was parried by Pickford into the path of the Spaniard.

United weren't done there as Pérez thumped home the late winner in front of the Gallowgate End, sparking jubilant scenes and capping off a remarkable fightback.

Everton hit for six (2001/02)

With Newcastle chasing a Champions League qualification spot, Sir Bobby Robson's side produced an emphatic display against Everton in a 6-2 triumph.

However, the scores were level at the break with former United forward Duncan Ferguson opening the scoring before two goals in as many minutes, courtesy of  Alan Shearer and Carl Cort, turned the game around for the Magpies.

After Niclas Alexandersson's equaliser before half-time, the Magpies took full control in the second half, with Andy O'Brien netting his first goal for Newcastle before another two quick goals in succession, both scored by Nolberto Solano, extended their advantage.

Olivier Bernard completed the rout in the final stages as Newcastle ended the season in fourth place, securing Champions League football for the second time in the club's history.

United end year on a high (2014/15)

United claimed a 3-2 win against the Toffees in a game which saw the Magpies come from behind after forward Arouna Kone broke the deadlock after five minutes.

It was a crisp winter's day but Papiss Cissé continued his hot goalscoring streak with his fifth goal in six games before Ayoze Pérez's driven strike and Jack Colback's first goal for his boyhood club gave United breathing space.

Kevin Mirallas' late finish set up a tense finale but Newcastle held on for three points, securing their first league win in four matches before the turn of the new year.

Same old Shearer, always scoring! (2003/04)

Newcastle's talismanic striker was again amongst the goals against Everton, netting a second half double in a 4-2 victory to continue the Magpies' push for a top-four finish.

Thomas Gravesen cancelled out Craig Bellamy's early solo goal before Kieron Dyer restored the home side's lead by finishing a flowing move.

Shearer eased the tension of the St. James' crowd by pouncing on a defensive error from Joseph Yobo before scoring his 25th goal of the season.

Yobo atoned for his earlier error with a late goal but the Newcastle captain grabbed his second goal in the final minute as United went on to finish fifth, qualifying for the UEFA Cup.
