Demba strike earns draw for Newcastle

 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 dominated the first half and led thanks to a fine goal by England left back Leighton Baines before Newcastle equalised just after the interval through halftime substitute Ba.Everton climbed to seventh in the standings on seven points from four games with Newcastle two points back in 11th.

"I never set up my team to get a draw and in the second half we showed what we are all about," Newcastle manager Alan Pardew told Sky Sports.

Chelsea lead the Premier League standings after four matches with 10 points following their 0-0 draw at Queen’s Park Rangers on Saturday.

Manchester United climbed to second with a 4-0 rout of Wigan Athletic and Arsenal are third after thrashing Southampton 6-1.
