A pulsating finish ends all square as controversy reigns at Goodison Park.
Everton twice denied by some poor officiating and suffered at the hands of a lethally clinical Newcastle.
What a game for the neutral. A point still represents a solid start for both sides, although Everton fans will have every reason to feel aggrieved.
Everton 2 Newcastle 2
90+2'—Newcastle change: Bigirimana on for Cabaye.
90+1'—Four minutes added on...
Can either side snatch it?
90'—A long ball is flicked on by Ameobi and Ba tucks it in!
What a message he's sent to Pardew and what a climax to this game!
90'—GOAL NEWCASTLE! 2-2! BA!
89'—What a finish! A sharp turn and Anichebe gives Everton the lead.
Two minutes plus injury time remain.
88'—GOAL EVERTON! 2-1! ANICHEBE!
85'—SO CLOSE NEWCASTLE! A combination of Howard and Jagielka keep Ben Arfa from scoring when played clean through.
Excellent chance goes begging for Newcastle.
84'—Yellow Card! Fellaini enters the book for a malicious looking stamp.
82'—Two wrong calls by the officials have kept Everton off the score-sheet this second half. Fellaini onside and denied by a flag, and Anichebe's effort clearly crossed the line.
David Moyes won't be a happy man.
80'—Everton change: Naismith on for Mirallas.
77'—Everton cruelly robbed as Anichebe's effort clearly crosses the whitewash. Poor, costly decision for the Toffees, can they recover?
Moments later Newcastle broke away and an early whistle unfairly halted the visitor's attack. Not a great few minutes for a certain Mike Jones.
Newcastle change: Ameobi on for Cisse.
76'—NO GOAL EVERTON! DID IT CROSS THE LINE?
75'—After Jelavic's injury, Moyes will be concerned to see Fellaini also currently down with a shoulder injury...
74'—EVERTON CLOSE! Osman hits wide after being set up by Fellaini and Pienaar.
70'—20 minutes to go and both sides will feel that have a chance of taking the points here.
Newcastle arguably enjoying more of the play at the minute, but Everton surging forward whenever in possession. Anita at right-back has made a big difference.
67'—Mirallas up front for Everton now, with Anichebe moving to the right.
63'—Crowd coming into it as a few 50-50 calls go against Everton. Testing final 30 for the referee now.
60'—EVERTON RULED OFFSIDE AGAIN! This time it's tighter and if anything Fellaini looked in line with the last man. Harsh call on Everton as the Belgian finished well.
Down the other end, Cisse tries a lob that just goes over.
55'—More muffled cries for a penalty from Everton as Fellaini is challenged, again correctly waved away by the referee.
End-to-end contest now with Newcastle throwing far more men forward.
53'—Everton looking a little deflated and struggling to find Anichebe up front. Newcastle have confidence oozing through their system after their goal and it's showing. Game on!
49'—Demba Ba with an instant impact, finishing from outside the area after fine work from Cabaye. Newcastle suddenly on top and what a start for Ba.
49'—GOAL NEWCASTLE! 1-1!
