A five-goal half-time lead was record No1 followed by 7-0 being the club’s biggest ever away day win.

Here’s how fans reacted to the result...

@kingkie1994 – “Cracking score line tonight! But let’s not get carried away! Happy for Murphy and joelinton aswell!! Miggy needs to start Sunday!”

Newcastle United's Paraguayan midfielder Miguel Almiron (L) goes around Morecambe's Englsish goalkeeper Mark Halstead on his way to scoring their second goal during the English League Cup third round football match between Morecambe and Newcastle United at The Mazuma Stadium in north-west England, on September 23, 2020.

@jchaytor16 – “Notice how we didn't use Joelinton as a target man tonight and he actually played well? Dropping deep to link the play, this is how we should've been using him since we signed him!”

@stevenufc3 – “Another lucky win for Bruce again.”

@matthewcairnss – “Not to get ahead of myself like but we are definitely gonna win the Carabao Cup.”

@jasoncubbage – “#NUFC changed their opponent level to ‘amateur’ for a much needed self esteem boost. Unfortunately the opponent level will revert back to ‘professional’ on Sunday against Spurs.”
