Dominic Calvert-Lewin converted a late penalty as Everton gained a vital point in their battle to avoid relegation with a draw at Europe-chasing Newcastle.

Alexander Isak gave the hosts a 15th-minute lead when he collected Harvey Barnes' ball over the visiting defence, cut inside Jarrad Branthwaite and calmly slotted past Jordan Pickford.

Dan Burn had a goal ruled out for offside and Isak had another attempt cleared off the line, before the visitors were handed a late lifeline as Paul Dummett had his arm around Ashley Young's neck and wrestled him to the ground.

England striker Calvert-Lewin kept his composure to score his first goal in 24 games in all competitions and end a goalless run that had stretched back to October.

Unwanted Everton record despite hard-earned point

Everton stay 15th in the Premier League, but move four points clear of 18th-placed Luton Town, who play at Arsenal on Wednesday.

Despite the draw, the result still set an unwanted club record for the Toffees as this was their 13th successive Premier League match without a win.

The Toffees have now not won in the league since a 2-0 victory at Burnley on 16 December and this draw took them past their 12-game winless run in the Premier League when, under Mike Walker, they failed to win a dozen matches between August and October of 1994.

Newcastle started the day eighth, a point behind seventh-placed West Ham, who were playing at home to Tottenham on Tuesday, but with a game in hand on the Hammers.

Depending on who wins the FA Cup, seventh may be enough to qualify for Europe which would be something for Newcastle to cling on to from a tough campaign after last year's highs that saw them finish fourth, qualify for the Champions League and reach the Carabao Cup final.
