Ross Barkley was left delighted with Everton’s clean sheet as they defeated Newcastle United by 3-0 at Goodison Park tonight.
The emphatic result for the Toffees ended a five-game winless run in the Premier League.
Barkley netted from the penalty spot twice after
Aaron Lennon had opened scoring to give Roberto Martinez men all three points in a game that included the sending-off of Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles.
“The clean sheet is a boost for the whole team and will give us confidence,” Barkley told BBC Sport. “We are focusing on each game as it comes trying to get three points. I’ve scored panenka penalties on the training ground before.”
