Wilson, who had missed Newcastle’s two best chances either side of half-time, got his 50th Premier League goal with a fabulous, inch-perfect header from Jonjo Shelvey’s corner in the 73rd minute.

Wilson got his and Newcastle’s second in stoppage time, finishing low past Jordan Pickford when one-on-one as Everton were caught high up the pitch looking for a leveller.

There have been strong calls for Bruce’s sacking among Newcastle fans of late, but this was a rare positive performance and lifts Newcastle nine points clear of the drop zone, albeit having played two more games than 18th-place Fulham.
