  • NEWCASTLE LEAD! Shelvey sweeps a ball down the left towards Saint-Maximin, who still has a lot of work to do, and the Frenchman takes advantage of a slip by Ngakia, to drive towards the box at pace and drill home a powerful finish at the near post - leaving Foster completely flat-footed. What a start to the second half - that was a beauty! Newcastle go 1-0 up!

  • WATFORD LEVEL! Ranieri's changes pay off, as Femenia chases onto a ball down the right and clips in a delicious ball towards the penalty spot, from where Pedro beats Lascelles in an aerial challenge and plants the ball past Dubravka into the bottom-left corner. Incredible drama at St James' - it is now 1-1 with just minutes to go!
