Newcastle United striker Demba Ba struck in the last minute to salvage a 2-2 draw with Everton in a pulsating Premier League match at Goodison Park on Monday.

Everton looked to have sealed all three points when Victor Anichebe turned neatly to crack a low shot past Tim Howard with two minutes left but Ba’s clever finish earned a point for his team.

Everton climbed to seventh in the standings on seven points from four games with Newcastle two points back in 11th.
