Darlow was picked to start ahead of Rob Elliot for the third Premier League game in a row, but endured a difficult first half.
He was Newcastle’s first-choice goalkeeper last season and played a key role in the side who won promotion to the Premier League and clinched the Championship title.

The keeper had only made one start this season, in the 3-2 EFL Cup defeat against his former club Nottingham Forest, but was called into the starting line-up for the 2-2 draw at West Brom last month.
However, things have not gone to plan for the player, who has now conceded 12 goals in four and a half appearances so far this season, including the game against Everton this evening.
