Calvert-Lewin ends goal drought to deny Newcastle

Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored a goal for the first time in 23 games to earn Everton a point against Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Tuesday evening. 

The English striker converted from the penalty spot late on to cancel out Alexander Isak’s opener from the first half.

The 27-year-old hadn’t scored since October when he netted the decisive goal in a 1-0 win over West Ham United.

 

“I felt good, just like any other penalty I’ve ever taken,” Calvert-Lewin told TNT Sports after the final whistle.

“I practice them a lot in training, I just tried to take it like i was doing it on the training pitch and thankfully it went in.

Asked how it felt to finally put an end to his goal drought, Calvert-Lewin responded: “It’s a great feeling. My job is to score goals and to go so long without doing it can play on your mind at times.

 

“I stayed confident, kept getting in there. We got a penalty and I’m on the pitch to take it, so I put it away.

“We have to try and build confidence from this and take that into the game against Burnley. We’ve never stopped believing, never stopped working.”

The result leaves Everton four points above the dropzone after 30 games. The Toffees face a relegation six-pointer this Saturday when they host 19th-placed Burnley at Goodison Park.
