Newcastle United head coach Steve McClaren says his team’s performance in their 3-0 defeat away to Everton on Wednesday night was unacceptable.

The Magpies were behind at the break following Aaron Lennon’s 23rd minute strike; before England international Ross Barkley scored two late penalties in the 88th and 94th minute to seal the Toffees’ first home league win since November 21.

Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles was sent off following his challenge on Barkley for the second spot kick.

The visitors’ 13th loss of the season means McClaren’s men are still two points adrift of safety in 18th spot having also lost to Watford (2-1) back on January 23.
