Atsu who arrived in the English Premier league in 2013 when he signed for Chelsea has had to wait four years to score his first goal largely because who was loaned out so many times and hardly got a Premier league game in a Chelsea shirt.

Newcastle handed Stoke their first defeat since the opening day of the Premier League season thanks to Jamaal Lascelles' second half victor.

However brief their stay may be, the locals among a crowd of 51,795 left St James' Park in jubilant mood after witnessing a third successive league win and perhaps dreaming, albeit fancifully, of the days when the club once mixed it with Europe's aristocrats.

With Rafael Benitez back in the dugout, it was Newcastle that made a bright start and they went ahead inside 20 minutes.

United manager Benitez said: "I haven't seen the table and I don't want to see the table, believe me".

"We're a good side and we can knock it around but in key moments you've got to be really clinical and make sure you give the right weight of pass to allow players to have those clear-cut chances".

Martin Keown explains awkward situation facing Crystal Palace after Roy Hodgson appointment
Hodgson was officially appointed as the new Eagles manager on Tuesday night following the sacking of Frank de Boer on Monday. We are getting a pretty good price on this bet and due to that, I am going to suggest this bet.

"Hopefully the fans are enjoying and the team can carry on winning".

"Towards the end of the game we just made a mistake on the set play for them to take the lead for the second time". But obviously the right ball right on to his head, it's hard to defend under those circumstances.

Without suspended striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, Newcastle looked to Joselu up front but the former Stoke forward squandered three chances to increase Newcastle's lead.
