Christian Atsu was influential in Newcastle United's draw against Everton at Goodison Park on Wednesday in the English Premier League.


Atsu lasted in the entire duration of the game as Solomon Rondon's opener was cancelled by Everton's Richarlisson.

Everton had 19 shots at goal but it was the visitors who took the lead as Salomon Rondon smashed home after a sweeping counter-attack.



Everton responded well and were rewarded for a period of sustained pressure when Richarlison equalised seven minutes before the interval, lifting the ball into the roof of the net from close range.
