Hatem Ben Arfa marked his full debut for Newcastle with the winner in a 1-0 victory at at Goodison Park as the Magpies picked up their first away win of the season and ensured Everton's miserable start continued.
David Moyes' team were looking to build on last week's incredible comeback against Manchester United but the visitors fully deserved their three points, secured when winger Ben Arfa drilled an unstoppable shot into the top corner just before half-time.
The only sour note of a great afternoon for the Magpies was an injury to goalkeeper Steve Harper, who fell heavily on his left shoulder and was carried off on a stretcher, while Everton's best effort came in added time when Aiyegbeni Yakubu hit the post.
