Half of Everton captain Phil Neville's face was covered in blood after a head to head collision with teammate Victor Anichebe in their 2-1 win against Newcastle. The collision opened up a cut on the side of Neville's head that later required eight stitches (according to Neville's Twitter account).

Both players were able to play the final 10 minutes of the match after getting patched up, though the 35-year-old Neville might not remember much of what happened in that time.
