Lascelles gives Newcastle third successive win

Jamaal Lascelles was Newcastle's star once again as the Magpies captain sealed a 2-1 win over Stoke at St James' Park on Saturday.

After 2 failed attempts at picking up Premier League points upon returning from the Championship, Newcastle finally got back to winning ways at the 3rd and 4th times of asking, with consecutive victories against West Ham and Swansea easing earlier pressure and putting talks of another possible relegation battle to bed.

The Magpies might have extended their lead within three minutes, but Lascelles directed his glancing header from a Ritchie corner just wide.

Elliot did come to Newcastle's rescue with 64 minutes gone when he turned away Mame Biram Diouf's goal-bound header from Shaqiri's cross. The Republic of Ireland global clawed Shaqiri's curling effort out of the top corner and beat away another shot before repelling Diouf's goal-bound header.

The visitors nearly went in front five minutes later, Shaqiri the provider this time but Diouf's downward header unable to beat Elliott.

The hosts, however, put themselves back ahead in the 68th minute when Ritchie swung in a corner which was turned in by Lascelles. Sub Peter Crouch set up Eric Choupo-Moting but his finish lacked composure while, in stoppage time, Bruno Martins Indi's cross was met by Diouf who somehow did not hit the target.
