First and foremost it was a team performance tonight with Newcastle beating an in-form Burnley side 2-0, and that means we have four wins and 13 points from our last six games.
That was also Newcastle’s fourth win in a row at home in which we have scored 9 goals and conceded only the one goal to Manchester City (and that was after 25 seconds).
Fabian Scar scored a phenomenal goal from 30 yards out after 24 minutes tonight, and then Sean Longstaff rammed in his first Premier League goal ever to put Newcastle 2-0 up at the half, and the result was never in doubt.
It looks like Rafa is working some of his magic again in the run-in to the season.
Sean Longstaff – what it’s like for a local lad to score his first Premier League goal for Newcastle!
We now have 31 points from 28 games played, and we are in 13th place in the league.
Newcastle now need 14 points from the last 10 games to beat last season’s points total of 44 points.
That would be really something after getting only 3 points from the first 10 games.
