(AP) -- LONDON (SE) - Newcastle United were forced to settle for a place in the Europa League after losing 3-1 to 10-man Everton on Sunday at Goodison Park.
The Magpies needed a victory and either Arsenal to lose or Tottenham Hotspur to drop points to move up for a Champions League place. The Gunners and Spurs both won anyway, with Alan Pardew's fifth-placed side finishing on 65 points.
Newcastle's fate was virtually sealed when Steven Pienaar and Nikola Jelavic struck inside the first half hour for the Toffees. Jelavic has eight goals over his last eight matches.
John Heitinga made it 3-0 in the 66th minute before Tony Hibbert scored into his own net for the Magpies' goal. Substitute Tim Cahill was sent off for the hosts after the final whistle.
David Moyes' side secured seventh place and go into the offseason on a nine-match unbeaten run, finishing ahead of Merseyside rivals Liverpool for the second time in the last 25 seasons.
