Well, Alan Shearer called it this morning when he said that Newcastle had a chance. He was spot on as Newcastle have fought for an unexpected point against the defending Champions.
This is Alan’s response after the well-deserved draw this afternoon.

While he’s singled out the two goal scorers and the immense Martin Dubravka, our defense was solid despite conceding two goals.
We were a bit aghast when we saw the teamsheet before the game. It looked like we were in for a long afternoon. However, Steve Bruce deserves credit as the team he selected got the job done today.
This is precisely what we needed to lift the spirits after the display at Aston Villa five days ago.
However, there is still a lot of work to do to keep this team away from the bottom three. We’ve got some of the momentum back that we lost on Monday.
Bruce will need to harness that and take it to Sheffield United on Thursday in a critical match.
