The mood was one of triumph for the lads after sealing all three points at Sheffield United in quite an unconventional manner. The hosts had 76% of the possession and outshot Newcastle by a tally of 13 to 6.
However, none of that matters as it’s Newcastle who put the ball in the back of the net twice for the 0-2 victory. While it certainly wasn’t pleasing on the eyes, these players fought hard and showed resilience against an in-form team. In fact, this is the first match since September that the Blades have come away empty-handed.
As you would expect after such a strange victory, some of the players have gone on social media to express their joy with the big win. With Allan Saint-Maximin scoring his debut goal for Newcastle, he couldn’t stay away from social media.
He wasn’t the only as even the injured Jamaal Lascelles had something to say. Here are some of the social media responses to Thursday Night’s big win.
