Full time: Newcastle 0-1 Everton

There is barely any time to restart the game and Everton have grabbed the most priceless of wins in the final minute. There were chances for both sides, particularly for Newcastle with Aleksandar Mitrovic and Georginio Wijnaldum missing second half headers. Everton controlled long periods of the game and thoroughly deserved the win, but it was a cruel, cruel climax for the Toon. Well that is all we have time for on this live blog, we're heading over to coverage of Southampton vs Arsenal here for our final Premier League game.

Goal: Newcastle 0-1 Everton (Tom Cleverley)

Amazing end to the game. Everton grab the winner in the final move of the game. Newcastle think they have survived when Wijnaldum blocks Lukaku's shot, but from the subsequent corner Elliot on half punches clear Baines' cross and Cleverley head the loose ball goalwards and it drops into the back of the net. Harsh on Newcastle who have invested so much in this game but they come away with nothing.

19:17

Three added minutes at St James'. Are we heading for a Boxing Day stalemate?

19:14

Jack Colback curls over the bar. Get the feeling both sides are now happy with the point. Thauvin replaces Perez as the heavy pitch starts to get to both sides. Will we see a winner?

19:12

Final throw of the dice from Everton as Leon Osman comes on for Kevin Mirallas. Does not strike me as an attacking change from Roberto Martinez.

19:07

Seamus Coleman pick-pockets Wijnaldum on the edge of the penalty area and lashes a shot towards the back post but the ball flies wide. A chance a minute at the moment.

19:06

What a save by Rob Elliot! Funes Mori has a free header from a Baines corner and Elliot turns the ball away, with Lukaku skying the follow-up from close range. Great game but not a showcase of top class finishing this game.

19:04

It is all Newcastle at the moment and again they should have opened the scoring. A cross from the right finds the onrushing Wijnaldum whose header is brilliantly kept out by Tim Howard. Everton paying the price for not converting their dominance and they've lost control of the last 15 minutes or so.

19:01

Aleksander Mitrovic should be putting Newcastle ahead when he connects with Sissoko's cross, but he can only ha wide. Great chance, and you wonder if Newcastle will get a better one.

18:59

Newcastle continuing to threaten in dispatches and Perez has the latest attempt which rolls wide. Less than 20 minutes left and it is anyones game at this stage.

18:57

Ross Barkley and Aaron Lennon off and Gerard Deulofeu and Muhamed Besic on for Everton. Can that help make the crucial breakthrough?

18:47

Newcastle fans are fuming with Lee Mason after a foul is not given against John Stones when he lunges in on Ajoze Perez. Everton keep the ball, resisting calls for them to kick it out so Perez can get treatment, and they almost score when Lennon drives goalwards and Elliot it equal to it.

18:45

Rob Elliot continues to prevail in his personal duel with Romelu Lukaku, who turns away from Mbemba and shoots left-footed but he is stopped by the Toon stopper.

18:43

Everton back into their stride and they come a whisker away from taking the lead and it takes a last ditch tackle from Janmaat to deny Cleverley.

18:39

Newcastle have started the second half well, seeing far more of the ball in the early stages. No chances to speak of yet but Steve McClaren will be happy with the control his side are exerting.

18:32

Under way in the second half at St James' Park. No changes.

18:17

Half time: Newcastle 0-0 Everton

Half time at St James' and its goalless, but Roberto Martinez will be rueing the wastefulness of the visitors. Everton have dominated for long periods, but bar a series of relatively easy saves for Rob Elliot, there is nothing to show for their authority. Newcastle have operated on the break largely and Steve McClaren will be content with their game plan so far.

18:16

Mirallas heads over as the first half approaches its conclusion. Everton much the better but they have not converted their dominance.

18:13

Daryl Janmaat very fortunate to stay on the field. Already booked, he takes out Ross Barkley with Everton on the attack. Lee Mason, in a reflection of his first half performance, decides to overlook the incident. Terribly officiating.

18:05

Newcastle have been starved of possession but when they have had the chance to attack they have caught Everton cold. Mitrovic runs unchallenged through a host of legs before eventually being stopped.

18:00

Another half a chance for Newcastle but Mitrovic's header is a limp one as Sissoko's cross looped up beyond John Stones.

17:59

Fabricio Coloccini drags back Romelu Lukaku and it should be penalty but referee Lee Mason overlooks the incident. Lennon now feeds the Belgian but Elliot is equal to the effort. Everton turned the screw now.

17:56

First foray from Newcastle into the Everton area and it is arguably the best chance of the game. Janmaat crosses from the right and Mitrovic gets ahead of Coleman but can't direct his header towards Tim Howard's goal. Now Lukaku takes aim from 25 yards but hit shot is woefully wide.

17:53

Lee Mason has not had a great first quarter of this game. A bizarre yellow card was awarded to Paul Dummett earlier in the match before now a foul needlessly awarded after Ross Barkley had wriggled through a handful of challenges.
