Angry Ba inspired to rescue Newcastle point

Newcastle United striker Demba Ba was inspired to hit his double after starting their 2-2 draw with Everton from the bench.

Ba, who admitted he was "not happy" to be left on the bench, was introduced at the interval and equalised for the first time within four minutes.

He grabbed a predatory second in the last minute to prove his point to manager Alan Pardew, who admitted: "Sometimes players play better when they're angry.

"I can't keep everyone happy in this squad, there are still one or two who aren't happy."
