Newcastle had a huge 7-3 win in 1927, countered by a big 8-1 loss to Everton in 1931. Newcastle added an 8-2 win to the rivalry in 1959.
From the late 70s to the late 80s, Everton dominated. Newcastle United went winless in 13 straight matches during that time period. They would respond by winning nine of the next 12 fixtures in the series, including a 1-0 victory in the first Premier League match between the two clubs.
The 3rd round League Cup match between the two was an exciting one. It was level after 90 minutes. Newcastle scored in the 100th minute on an own goal by Alessandro Pistone and Everton equalized on a 112th-minute penalty. Everton would win 3-2 on penalties to advance. 2002 also featured Alan Shearer’s personal choice for best goal of his career. His ridiculous volley leveled the match late before Newcastle United won it on an own goal.
Recent history has not been kind to Newcastle. Since 2011, they’ve only won twice in 11 chances. Everton swept the season series last time both clubs were in the Premier League in 2015/16. The last match was a 3-0 win for the Toffees, including two late penalties for Ross Barkley.
