LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND (REUTERS) - Striker Moise Kean finally opened his Everton account with his first goal for the club but Newcastle United scored twice in stoppage time to snatch a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park on Tuesday (Jan 21).

The 19-year-old, making his 22nd appearance since a €27.5 million (S$40 million) move from Juventus, celebrated wildly in front of the Goodison Park faithful when firing home after 30 minutes.

Carlo Ancelotti's resurgent Everton side dominated an injury-hit Newcastle and deservedly doubled their lead in the 54th minute when in-form English forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin notched his 10th league goal of the season.

There looked no way back for injury-hit Newcastle who had barely threatened the Everton goal and substitute Florian Lejeune's overhead kick looked no more than a consolation.

Yet Newcastle were not finished and Lejeune grabbed the most dramatic of equalisers when he touched home after a goalmouth scramble in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
