A frustrating first half ended on a positive not for Newcastle as Callum Wilson converted a penalty in the sixth minute of stoppage time to give the hosts a 1-0 lead at the break after Ashley Young was penalised for handball.

Wilson then doubled Newcastle’s lead after the restart as he turned in a clipped cross from Kieran Trippier with his head. A swift counter attack saw Wilson denied a quick hat-trick but Joelinton was quick to react and make it 3-0 to The Magpies on the rebound.

Miguel Almiron then got in on the action with another sensational finish to make it 4-0.
