Everton midfielder James McCarthy was delighted with victory over Newcastle United.

McCarthy realised a boyhood dream when he made his full home debut for Everton in Monday night's 3-2 defeat of Newcastle United.

"It was brilliant just to get out there in front of the home fans," McCarthy told the Liverpool Echo.

"It's what you dream of as a kid to come and play at such a big stadium as Goodison. The fans were different class and it's just a real honour to get my first start especially at home."
