  • WHAT A HIT TO OPEN THE SCORING! It’s a superb strike from Sean Longstaff, who puts Newcastle ahead with a rifled shot from 20 yards away from goal. Hit with power and dip it’s a fantastic effort - though Foster will no doubt believe he should have done better to parry the shot. 1-0 to Newcastle!

  • Ritchie was forced to deal with Sarr alone in midfield and gets beaten easily, before bringing the winger down cynically. It’s a yellow card for the Newcastle player; now both of their wing-backs are booked.

  • Troost-Ekong goes into a sliding challenge on the edge of the penalty area to win the ball back from Willock, but the defender catches the midfielder squarely and gives away a free-kick in a dangerous position. It’s a yellow for the centre-back.

  • No surprise to see Rose shown a yellow card for a rash lunging challenge on Almiron just outside the penalty area. The Watford defence was caught out after Saint-Maximin’s rapid counter-attack, leading to Rose’s cynical and mistimed challenge.
