NEWCASTLE won 2-0 at West Brom yesterday to record their fourth straight Premier League win and climb to eighth in the table.

Striker Ayoze Perez’s backheeled finish and defender Fabricio Coloccini’s full-blooded header, both from Daryl Janmaat deliveries, earned the Magpies’ fifth consecutive victory in all competitions.

Everton defender Leighton Baines converted a penalty as the Toffees earned a 1-1 draw at Sunderland. Midfielder Sebastian Larsson’s free-kick had put the Black Cats ahead, while Everton’s Gareth Barry injured his ankle.
