Welcome to the Premier League’s battle for ninth place, a fight not really worth bruising your knuckles for, as the expensively assembled, established Premier League team beat the newly-promoted one by a solitary goal in a mistake ridden contest that failed to enhance the reputations of anyone involved. The goal was scored by Everton’s Theo Walcott, early in the second half, with his team’s only shot on target. Everton just about deserved the win, but the three points will only muffle the animosity towards manager Sam Allardyce, rather than silence it. Even after taking the lead, Everton were far from convincing and it was Newcastle who finished strongest. The visitors should have equalised when substitute Dwight Gayle fired over from six yards and only a magnificent defensive header from Seamus Coleman in stoppage time denied them a draw. “What was wrong with our style today?” asked Allardyce. “We completely dominated the game, out-passed the opposition and found it difficult to break them down because of their negative tactics. “Up to 75 minutes we were excellent. But we had to do a bit more frantic defending after that and we lost our rhythm when Morgan Schneiderlin went off. There wasn't much love in the air for Sam Allardyce from Everton and Newcastle fans alike Credit: REUTERS/Andrew Yates “I’m pleased for the team and I’m pleased with the 1-0 victory. I think the whole team suffered a loss of confidence at the start of the season, but we are going in the right direction again.” It is comments like these that Allardyce is so often criticised for. Everton did not dominate the game and there was plenty wrong with their display. Performances like these can be excused when all that matters is avoiding relegation, but Everton did not anticipate scrapping with Newcastle for ninth place back in August and there are too many supporters who fail to see how they can be anything more with Allardyce in charge. A banner appeared in the Gwladys Street end before kick-off urging him to leave at the earliest opportunity and Newcastle’s travelling contingent taunted their hosts with chants of “you’ve got Sam Allardyce” midway through a dreary first half. The silence that followed from the home support spoke volumes. Walcott drives his shot into the roof of the net Credit: Peter Byrne/PA Wire Even those who have some appreciation for the job Allardyce has done in guiding the team away from the bottom three are unwilling to offer their support. Regardless of the mess he found them in and no matter how efficiently he has cleared it up, eighth or ninth is not where Everton perceive they should be. With the malcontents also resentful of the cautious, safety-first football served up Allardyce is swimming against a ferocious tide on Merseyside and there is every chance he will be out of work again in the summer. In contrast, even a top 10 place would represent a fine finish for Newcastle and the hugely popular Rafa Benítez. Their attention has also turned to what comes next and Benítez has warned he will only commit his long-term future to the club if it shares his ambition. Everton 1 - 0 Newcastle (Theo Walcott, 51 min) It is the same warning he issued last summer, but it was resolved amicably enough following a face-to-face meeting with Ashley between the two most powerful men at St James’ Park. Whether it can be again, so swiftly remains to be seen given Benítez felt he was misled 12 months ago, but the feeling is the Spaniard will stick around for at least the remaining year on his contract. Benítez will target a top eight finish next season and he will do so with the momentum of this campaign behind him. Newcastle have been superb since the start of the year and although this was not a repeat of their swashbuckling display against Arsenal the previous week, it was further evidence of how much they have improved. Everton vs Newcastle shots on goal Not that this will make the highlights reel. Everton created the first chance of the game after just two minutes, a rapid, direct run from Walcott at the middle of the Newcastle defence leading to a shot from Cenk Tosun, which drifted wide. There was not another real effort on goal for more than half an hour, when Phil Jagielka could not turn in Michael’s Keane’s header after the Magpies had struggled to clear a corner. Newcastle should have made far more of the one opportunity that came there way before half time, a poor clearance from Jordan Pickford falling to Ayoze Pérez, but he overhit a simple through ball to the unmarked Islam Slimani. Pérez’s terrible night continued after the break when he failed to hit the target when sent in on goal by Kenedy. That was a let-off for Everton which they duly punished minutes later when DeAndre Yedlin failed to clear Yannick Bolasie’s cross and Walcott was able to fire a close range shot into the roof of the net. Newcastle exerted plenty of pressure on the Everton defence after that, as the home crowd’s pleasure turned quickly back into frustration, but there was not enough quality in the final third. “Neither team had many chances and we did not take ours,” said Benítez. “We were not good enough with our final pass and when the referee allows the home team to be so physical, he lets them get away with things, it is hard. "We battled, we had chances to draw, but we have lost against a good team. Look at the numbers [cost] of their players.”

Gary Cahill has spoken of the “rollercoaster” of having to fight for his place for club and country after a frustrating season in which he has been dropped by both. The 32-year-old has returned to the Chelsea team of late, after losing his place, and captained them to their FA Cup semi-final victory over Southampton on Sunday. His up-and-down season has put his World Cup place in jeopardy, however, with Gareth Southgate having left Cahill out of his recent England squad. Cahill remains optimistic that he can make the final 23 for Russia. “Everything is a possibility when you're playing,” he said, adding: “We have gone into the [FA Cup] final and the World Cup is coming so let's wait and see.” Having been dropped by Chelsea Cahill has had to fight his way back. “Football is a bit of a rollercoaster. It is not always going to go amazingly well but if you look over my career since I have started the majority of my career I have played 30 plus games every season,” the central defender said. “Twice I haven't. This season and the time we finished 10th.” Chelsea vs Southampton player ratings from FA Cup semi-final His experience has stood Cahill in good stead but he added: “It gets tiring after a bit if I'm honest with you. Almost like you have to keep doing it again and then you have to keep doing it again. “Maybe that is just football, maybe that is just the way my past has gone, whatever, I don't know. But I have done it before and I think I do, especially now, I definitely do bring back that kind of feeling and experience. “I don't go out there with nerves thinking I have to prove things to everybody. I think I have done that before if you look over my career I have proved playing in the Champions League, proved playing in the Premier League, proved playing for England so it is just a matter of me enjoying what I am doing and getting back to the level that I expect from myself. Cahill added: “What I would say is, like I said before, that every time I’ve been out the team or if I have come out of the team before, form...you don't just disappear and turn into a bad player overnight. Form, if you ride it out, you come back to the levels you should be at. “I realise the manager has decisions to make. I realise maybe I am not getting any younger. I am fit and ready to go and don't really feel like I need to prove [myself].”
