Newcastle were second-best overall today at Selhurst Park, but at least we only conceded a single goal, and it was a wonderful equalizer from that man Callum Wilson – his second goal in as many games – that gave us a point.
The home side though had enough chances to win the game, especially their goalscorer Benteke.
But some stout defending and considerable luck that allowed us to come away with a point today – and we will take it.
And it seemed that Benteke had brilliantly headed in the winner after 86 minutes, but VAR over-ruled the goal – for whatever reason.
Well – we are a rich club now, of course.
But most of our players must improve their form before the end of the year, so we are well clear of the relegation zone come January.
At that time the new owners will hope to bring in around five players to strengthen the side for the remainder of the season.
Let us know who you think Newcastle’s best player was this afternoon in London.
