Liverpool Liverpool Liverpool After the new season opened with four consecutive victories, Everton failed with Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti to win the third stage and suffered a second defeat in a row.
Everton dropped to second place, three points behind Liverpool, who won Saturday 2-1 at West Ham, and goals against Southampton and Wolverhampton, who beat Aston Villa 4-3 on Sunday and Crystal Palace 2-0 Friday, respectively.
Newcastle owes its third victory and its 11th point this season to Callum Wilson, who scored the two goals, the first from a penalty he snatched himself from Andre Gomes (54), and the second after a quick counter attack and a cross pass from Scottish substitute Ryan Frazier.
Wilson raised his tally to six goals in his seventh league match with Newcastle, one more than the number of goals he scored in his last 30 matches with his former club Bournemouth, according to “Opta” statistics.
Everton scored his only goal late, through top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin after a cross by Nigerian Alex Ayoubi (1 + 90), raising his score to 8 goals in the top scorers with Egyptian Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) and South Korean Son Heung Min (Tottenham Hotspur).
For his part, Southampton continued its renaissance and inflicted its second successive loss at Aston Villa when they beat them 4-3.
