So far Wilson has had a better season than Joelinton had last. ASM is looking exciting without end product. I’m really happy with Lewis, looks good going forward and linking up well with ASM. #NUFC #HWTL

Wilson fantastic we’ve really missed someone like him, Lewis class, ASM unreal, his pace is incredible, Hendrick would put in CM and take Hayden off (because of yellow card) and put Almiron or Fraser in, other than that we looked the better team, up the mags #nufc

All in all – a positive half. They’re finding it difficult to break us down, and we look dangerous every time we go forward. Carroll’s holding the ball up well. Shelvey’s been fantastic too. And as always – ASM’s been unbelievable. He really is some player. #NUFC

Over the course of the 90 minutes at the London Stadium on Saturday evening, visitors Newcastle had 42% of the possession, took 15 shots of which two were on target, and earned seven corners, according to BBC Sport.
Newcastle were the better side and deservedly picked up all three points from the encounter.
It was not the best of performances from the Magpies, but they will be pleased that Callum Wilson scored on his debut and the team looked very good going on the attack.
