Miles Starforth's HT view
"That's as good a first-half performance as we've seen this season from United. Saint-Maximin, Almiron and Joelinton all played well. West Brom couldn't handle the pace and movement of Saint-Maximin and Almiron in particular, and the latter took his two goals well. Newcastle deserve their 2-0 lead at the break, and the club's 5,000 fans are singing about going to Wembley."
