Callum Wilson’s second half penalty saw Newcastle get back to winning ways against The Bees and end a three game losing streak. Wilson also had a goal ruled out and Newcastle had a penalty decision overturned by VAR as they were able to hold out for three points. It was the side’s first clean sheet of the season and only their second in their last 16 Premier League matches.

Following the match, Reuben posted an image of him stat alongside Mehrdad Ghodoussi on Twitter along with the caption: “Great to be back at SJP for a deserved win - atmosphere incredible again @NUFC. Onto Milan @ghodoussi.”

After Newcastle’s 3-1 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion before the international break, Reuben vowed that the club ‘will bounce back’.

He tweeted earlier this month: “Not the result we wanted - thank you to the incredible @NUFC fans who travelled so far and made their voices heard throughout. Credit to @OfficialBHAFC. We will bounce back. #WeAreUnited.”

While United’s performance against Brentford was not quite at the levels of their opening day win against Aston Villa, it was the result that mattered. The Magpies’ win takes them level on points with The Bees, who were unbeaten prior to their trip to St James’ Park.
