DeAndre Yedlin Returns From Injury To Help Newcastle To Third Straight Win


However, the Magpies beat the Hammers 3-0 before the worldwide break in the north east before recording a 1-0 victory against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium last time out.

Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles scored the victor as Rafa Benitez's side beat Stoke City 2-1 at St James' Park on Saturday to post their third successive Premier League victory.

After Xherdan Shaqiri cancelled out Christian Atsu's opener, it was left to defender Lascelles to again prove the match-winner for Newcastle.

"We had clear-cut chances with Choupo-Moting and Diouf. Sometimes we have some problems, but with the chances we can create we know they can give us the points".

"It's about us learning and understanding when we play a team who will sit back".

"We're disappointed because we came into the game in good form. We were not quite as accurate as we need to be".

After 2 failed attempts at picking up Premier League points upon returning from the Championship, Newcastle finally got back to winning ways at the 3rd and 4th times of asking, with consecutive victories against West Ham and Swansea easing earlier pressure and putting talks of another possible relegation battle to bed. He should be looking to get the best out of the players he has at his disposal.

"They can enjoy it, we have to enjoy it, but we have to be sure that the next training session, we start correcting things and improving things and doing things in the way we are doing things at the moment". It's no time to feel sorry for ourselves.
