Benitez reacts to Newcastle's defeat on the road at Everton

Elsewhere, Seamus Coleman made a vital interception in stoppage time to prevent a Newcastle equaliser as Everton held on for the win.

Well done Theo Walcott - three goals now as well as his assists. The former Arsenal forward then found himself a pocket of space before lifting the ball over goalkeeper Martin Dubravka and into the roof of the net.

"We're on track and going in the right direction".

His mom Michelle Wignall mentioned: 'We're thrilled that by No Isolation and Everton Soccer Membership, Jack is ready to get pleasure from this as soon as in a lifetime expertise'.

Newcastle did have reasonable claims for a penalty waved away inside the final 10 minutes - the ball striking Jagielka's arm - while Seamus Coleman made a key stoppage-time header from Jacob Murphy's unsafe delivery to leave the away side with a first loss since their last trip to Liverpool on March 3.

Benitez said: "I thought that when we came here". We were patient and got the victor. You can knock some of the passing that goes astray but you can't knock me for that, I don't pass the ball. The final pass is the difference, especially in the Premier League. "To stay in the Premier League was the target and we are really clear with that".

On critical fans, he continued: "If we lose next week they won't be there".

Jack's mother, Michelle Wignall, a WellChild ambassador, said: "Having the support from the unbelievable team at WellChild, from Esther our dedicated WellChild Nurse. means we're never alone, isolated or without support".

It was a well taken goal from Walcott that sees him take the man-of-the-match plaudits, and when Everton were on the attack, he was mostly involved as he played off the left wing in the second half as well as making the most sprints in the game (80). His strike was the third goal he has scored since joining the club in January.
