Newcastle United’s four-match winning run in the Premier League came to an end on Monday night when they suffered a 1-0 defeat at Everton.
Theo Walcott’s goal decided the match at Goodison Park, and it brought to an end a terrific Newcastle run which had seen them beat Southampton, Huddersfield Town, Leicester City and Arsenal to move clear of the relegation zone.
Magpies captain Jamaal Lascelles spoke openly after the match on Merseyside, with the centre-back insisting that the club had no reason to be disappointed following their recent form.
It would be fair to say that the Newcastle fans are currently much happier with what is happening at St James’ Park, and a number took to Twitter to insist that they were still behind the team despite the one-goal loss at Goodison Park.
And Lascelles, who has been linked with a move to Chelsea, will now be looking to lead his team to victory in their home match with West Bromwich Albion this weekend.
