Rafa Benitez says Newcastle defended well and were well organised in their 1-1 draw against an in-form Everton side.

Rafa Benitez said Newcastle had the chances to beat Everton but was happy to settle for a draw at Goodison Park.

Benitez set up his side to play on the counter-attack and took a surprise lead when Salomon Rondon turned in Jacob Murphy’s left-wing cross.

And despite conceding an equaliser to Richarlison’s close-range finish, the visitors hung on to head and kick away anything Everton threw their way – and could have won it late on but for Christian Atsu wasting two good chances.
