Newcastle beat Stoke City for third straight league win

Newcastle beat Stoke City for third straight league win

Christian Atsu was on target for Newcastle United in their 2-1 victory against Stoke City in the English Premier League at the St. James' Park on Saturday.

With Rafael Benitez back in the dugout, it was Newcastle that made a bright start and they went ahead inside 20 minutes. "When I had the offer to come, it was the only place I wanted to be".

"We're doing okay after a tough period of fixtures".

Stoke meanwhile, restored parity in the 57th minute through Xherdan Shaqiri, who unleashed a long range drive past goalkeeper Rob Elliot.

"The fans, they appreciate that and for us to do that every week and the captain leading by example is something that you have to be really pleased with".

Jonjo Shelvey and Dwight Gayle are again on the bench, while former Stoke striker Joselu continues up front.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes was disappointed not to come away with anything as his side lost for the first time since the opening day of the campaign, but urged his players to learn the lessons of their reverse on Tyneside.

The home side grabbed the victor though when Ritchie put a good ball into the box from a corner which was met and turned home by Lascelles, with 68 minutes played.

Apparently, everyone gives their absolute best as they compete for playing minutes, with Benitez a rewarder of hard work as opposed to having favourites.

However, it was Lascelles who rose highest to hand Newcastle all three points - via a big deflection off Kevin Wimmer - leaving Stoke on five points after five games.

"But in the end, it wasn't to be".
