Pardew admits Everton goal should have stood

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has admitted that at least one of Everton’s two disallowed goals should have stood in their Premier League meeting on Monday evening, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Marouane Fellaini had a goal ruled out for offside - a decision Everton manager David Moyes felt was incorrect - while later Victor Anichebe’s header appeared to cross the line only for the assistant referee’s flag to stay down.

Anichebe did score later in the contest but Everton were pegged back almost immediately after, the match ending in a 2-2 draw. Demba Ba scored twice for the visitors while Anichebe’s goal added to Leighton Baines’ first-half opener.

Everton had a number of opportunities to wrap the game up, particularly in the opening 45 minutes, while for Newcastle Papiss Cisse missed a good chance before half-time.

It was the Anichebe header that Pardew conceded should have stood. He said: “The one over the line was definitely in. I've said all along, as many Premier League managers have, that technology must come in. It's cost Everton a crucial goal.

Moyes, for his part, was reluctant to criticise the officials, saying only that they are paid to get these decisions right and by not doing so, had greatly changed the outcome of the match.
