Match Preview

Two Taylors impress Pardew Alan Pardew has saluted the men behind Newcastle's blistering Taylor-made start to the season. Defenders Steven and Ryan Taylor have proved key figures in the 10-game unbeaten run which has taken the Magpies into third place in the Barclays Premier League. Victory over Everton in Saturday's early kick-off could take Pardew's side, briefly at least, above Manchester United into second, and 25 points from the first 33 on offer would represent a return exceeding the wildest dreams of most on Tyneside. The contribution of the two Taylors has been immense with Steven in particular impressing to the extent that his club manager has repeatedly recommended him to England counterpart Fabio Capello. As one of the few Geordies in the squad - the 25-year-old central defender was born in Greenwich, but raised in the shadow of St James' Park - Pardew believes he has a special affinity with the club. He said: "Steven definitely has a feeling for the club above other players, without a shadow of a doubt. "Little things he says and does - he knows. "He's been here through some of the good years, so he knows that this is a big, big club and if we can get a competitive team, then the fans can carry us to who knows where." The former England Under-21s skipper's partnership with captain Fabricio Coloccini has been one of the features of Newcastle's fine start. However, namesake Ryan's role has been no less significant, if slightly more unexpected. The 27-year-old arrived at St James' in February 2009 as a right-sided utility man, but was pitched into the unaccustomed territory of left-back in the wake of Jose Enrique's departure for Liverpool when James Perch suffered an injury on the eve on the opener against Arsenal. After a shaky start, the former Wigan man has grown into the position to such an extent that he has played every minute of the league campaign to date, and his winning goal at Sunderland on August 20 earned him a special place in the hearts of the Toon Army. Pardew said: "I'm absolutely delighted with him. He has got a real confidence about him. "The one thing we always knew is his technique is top, top quality. He has just fitted in and seems more comfortable at left-back than he does anywhere else." Midfielder Danny Guthrie too has benefited from that policy having replaced the injured Cheik Tiote in the last two games and made light of the Ivory Coast international's absence. Pardew will make a late decision on Tiote, but has already ruled out Frenchman Gabriel Obertan with an infection. His place on the right wing is likely to be taken by Sylvain Marveaux as the depth of a squad which is still small by Premier League standards is tested for the first time in earnest. Everton manager David Moyes is confident young midfielder Jack Rodwell is up to the challenge posed by a potential senior England call-up but wants the player to be selected on merit. The 20-year-old has been tipped as one of a number of new faces Fabio Capello will select in his squad for forthcoming friendlies against Spain and Sweden. Moyes suspects Rodwell, who has 20 caps and two goals for the Under-21s, may be drafted in to cover for the absence of other players after this weekend's round of Barclays Premier League matches. And he would prefer the midfielder, who has started eight of nine league matches this season, to be earn his place outright. "I think a senior call-up can come too early. You want it to be merited for the right reasons," said the Toffees boss. "You want him to go into the team. If he played he wouldn't let anyone down because in international football he has some very good qualities. "Jack has done well. He has improved over the recent weeks and I think because of that he's getting close (to the full England team). "He is obviously going to be mentioned. He has played well in the games. "I don't know how many call-offs England might have this weekend - I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot - but that might bring Jack forward if that is the case." Of more concern to Moyes at present is Rodwell's form for the club after just one win in their last five matches. That run of fixtures included games against Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United. Moyes believes his side have played well in their last two matches but with the club 16th in the table he knows now is the time to start picking up points. They face another difficult task on Saturday. "It was always going to be a difficult group of matches," added the Scot.

Match Report

Pardew's Magpies flying high Ryan Taylor blasted Newcastle into second place in the Barclays Premier League as the Magpies extended their unbeaten start to 11 games with a 2-1 home win over Everton . Taylor's stunning 29th-minute volley ultimately edged the tightest of contests in front of a season's best crowd of 50,671 to take Alan Pardew's side, for a few hours at least, ahead of Manchester United. The victory ensured they matched their best unbeaten openings to a campaign in 1950-51 and 1994-95. However, it came at a cost as Yohan Cabaye and Sylvain Marveaux joined Cheik Tiote on the injured list with daunting trips to both Manchester clubs to come after the international break. Everton left St James' Park knowing they probably deserved to be doing so with something to show for their efforts having given as good as they got, particularly in a nerve-jangling second half for the Toon Army. However, they were never able to claw back the advantage they had handed their hosts through John Heitinga's 12th-minute own goal and Taylor's rocket despite giving themselves hope with Jack Rodwell's header in first-half injury-time. Newcastle went into the game knowing exactly what the rewards for victory would be and defending a proud record at St James' Park. Only Everton had won on Tyneside this calendar year, a run of 14 games, and Pardew had admitted before the game that a point would represent a creditable return. However, as the clock ticked towards the half-hour mark, his side found themselves two goals to the good, although even the most blinkered of fans would have to admit that scoreline slightly flattered them. That said, the quality which led to Tim Howard's defences being breached on both occasions was worthy of the outcome and while it is strikers Demba Ba and Leon Best who have done much of the damage so far this season, the source this time was somewhat different. The game was 12 minutes old when Steven Taylor laid the ball into Danny Guthrie, once again deputising for the injured Tiote, and he fed it out to full-back Danny Simpson in space down the right. Simpson's cross looked tailor-made for Best in the middle and Heitinga had little option but to try to cut it out, but with disastrous results as he could only turn it past Howard and into his own net. But in an even encounter, the visitors had opportunities to get themselves back on level terms Rodwell forcing a 23rd-minute save from Tim Krul, who clutched Leon Osman's shot to his midriff seconds later, while former Magpies Louis Saha shot wastefully wide with 25 minutes gone. However, Newcastle extended their lead in spectacular style four minutes later. Rodwell's clearing header fell to Ryan Taylor wide on the left and he teed the ball up before thumping a dipping volley over Howard an in off the underside of the crossbar. With Royston Drenthe impressive in a roaming role behind Saha, Everton tried to work their way back into the game and might have reduced the deficit with 13 minutes remaining, only for Saha's skidding shot to come back off the foot of the post. Ryan Taylor bounced a 34th-minute cross off Howard's crossbar as played switched rapidly from end to end, but the Magpies were left kicking themselves when the visitors grabbed a lifeline in injury time with Rodwell heading firmly home from Drenthe's near-post corner. The sides returned knowing the next goal could prove vital, and both might have claimed it in an eventful start to the half. Saha's appeals for a penalty after his shot was deflected wide - replays suggested it may have been so off substitute Gosling's arm - went unanswered at one end, and Sammy Ameobi, on for the injured Marveaux, scuffed a shot across the face of goal after breaking from halfway. Substitute Tim Cahill forced Krul to dive to his left to save on the hour and Ameobi skied a left-foot volley high over seconds later. But Newcastle were having to defend deep and in numbers, and it was significant that Ba and then Best were the men to head clear inside their own penalty area from Leighton Baines and Seamus Coleman in quick succession in the 63rd minute. Everton threw everything they had at the Magpies as the clock ran down with the home side retreating towards Krul at an alarming rate. However, they were unable to make the breakthrough and left Tyneside empty-handed. end
