Everton threw away a two-goal lead in stoppage time last night to miss the chance to go eighth in the Premier League.
Moise Kean and Dominic Calvert-Lewin strikes had looked like given the Toffees a big three points.
Carlo Ancelotti watched on in horror, however, as Newcastle scored in the 94th and 95th minute to snatch an undeserved draw.
Under the Italian, Everton have picked up and this result is simply a minor setback.
Nonetheless, it’s two points dropped and today Calvert-Lewin has issued an apologetic message to the club’s supporters.
He has apologies for dominating the game and says that the team will try and quickly move on:
What happened last night can’t and shouldn’t happen after dominating the game like that, so apologise to the fans!! We take the positives and move, happy to be in double figures for the season ⚡️💙 #UTFT #DCL9 https://t.co/w8c9QwW1gp

The 22-year-old striker has been in sensational form since Ancelotti arrived at Goodison Park.
Last night saw him net his 12th goal of the campaign in all competitions and he is improving each week.
The ex-Sheffield United youngster scored seven goals in 17 appearances for the under-21 England team.
On current form, he has to be getting closer to a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s squad.
With Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford set to be facing a race against time to be fit for the Euros in the summer, Calvert-Lewin might get the chance to stake his claim.
The uncompromising talisman has come of age this season and supporters will hope he can continue his decent form.
The £20,000-a-week (Spotrac) star has been trusted to keep his place in Ancelotti’s team and he is clearly benefitting from the world-class coaching.
