Newcastle stay 16th, but they are now four points clear of Brighton and Hove Albion below them. That's their first win since mid-December and Bruce will be hoping for another performance like this against Crystal Palace next time out. Everton miss the chance to close the gap to the top four, staying in seventh, and Ancelotti will be hoping they can bounce back against Leeds United on Wednesday.
Wilson's brace ends Newcastle's nine-match winless run in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Everton. It was goalless at the break with Wilson and Rodriguez forcing good saves out of the keepers at either end. Newcastle had the better chances in the second half though and Wilson opened the scoring with a great header from a corner. He hit the post 10 minutes later before adding his second with a cool finish across goal after a quick break.
