Christian Atsu made his eighth Premier League start of the season as Newcastle United staged a comeback from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Everton in the Premier League on Tuesday night.

 
It was his second start in three games, but he was taken off in the 62nd minute for Emil Krafth.
 
The Toffees had taken a 2-0 lead with goals in either half from Moise Kean and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and just when it seemed as if the game was over, the Magpies pulled back with a late brace from Florian Lejeune.
 
Atsu's time on the pitch saw him have 22 touches, five accurate passes (71.4%), as well as winning three of six ground duels, one interception and two tackles.
 
The 27-year-old will be hoping to be involved in the action again when Steve Bruce's men host Oxford United in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday.
