After the game on BeIN sports in the US yesterday the commentator had a brief commentary on the game and said Newcastle were poor in the first half but came back in the second and got the job done.
He said it was a win that you get from Champions – so that was a compliment after Newcastle did not play at their best – especially in the first 40 minutes before Gouffran put us in the lead.
Then we all saw karma is alive and well when future Hollywood actor Henri Lansbury somehow managed to put the ball into his own net to make it 2-0 as he tried to stop a Jamaal Lascelles shot and it was game over.

It was a big win for us and now we need another 3 points against Bristol City on Saturday and nothing can be taken for granted in that game.
Rafa said after the game that City create more chances than any other side in the division.
