Everton manager David Moyes was left to bemoan two disputed decisions by officials which cost his side the chance of victory in a 2-2 draw at home to Newcastle.

Having seen Leighton Baines' opener cancelled out by Demba Ba just after half-time, Moyes was aggrieved Marouane Fellaini had one effort ruled out for offside and Victor Anichebe's header was not spotted by linesman Ceri Richards despite appearing to cross the line. Anichebe then netted a goal with two minutes remaining only for Ba's second of the night to snatch a point.

"There are two goals missed so I can't get them back but you hope that the linesman has a look and sees how he missed them," said Moyes, who spoke to the officials after the game. "I had a word and said 'You've missed two goals' and it does affect the outcome of the game but what can I do about it?"
