Everton’s victory over Newcastle was dramatic, but Newcastle really should have got more from the match.
Our man of the match poll below shows who you picked for the prestigious FFC Fans’ Man of the Match award for the tea time kick-off on Boxing Day, but this game wasn’t getting anyone out of their seats too quickly.
The upside of this, was that you didn’t drop your turkey sandwich, but unfortunately it was a pretty difficult game to keep watching as Newcastle sat back and Everton had the creative spark of a Tony Pulis side.
We found out how crucial Gerard Deulofeu is to Everton and we know how obvious Aaron Lennon is, but the undoubted star was Chancel Mbemba.
Unfortunately, Mbemba didn’t win the huge FFC award in this game, so we can only hope that Newcastle’s powerful centre-back will be back with vengeance to claim the award for another game.
