Newcastle moves into top 5 with 3rd straight EPL win

Newcastle United climbed up to fourth in the table with a third successive Premier League win as Stoke City were unable to capitalise on some awful finishing from the home team.

It was the flawless way for Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez, recovered from a post-operation infection, to celebrate his return to the dugout after he missed Lascelles scoring the victor at Swansea last weekend.

Joselu didn't realize the time he had with Chancel Mbemba's cross into the box, flicking a first-time effort wide of the far post against his former club.

A 3-0 win against West Ham followed by a gritty 1-0 victory away at Swansea steadied the ship after a drab start to the season.

Newcastle took a 19th-minute lead after neither side had come near a sniff of goal. Matt Ritchie played in a pinpoint cross into the danger area, and the winger powered a header past Jack Butland.

The trend continued immediately after the restart as Joselu made it a trio of wasted opportunities by inexplicably firing over at close-range after Kevin Wimmer misread Atsu's left-sided cross.

Newcastle United's Jamaal Lascelles celebrates scoring their second goal against Stoke in St James' Park, September 16, 2017.

After losing their first two games, the Magpies secured their third back-to-back wins in the top flight for the first time since November 2014, and have nine points.

Atsu who arrived in the English Premier league in 2013 when he signed for Chelsea has had to wait four years to score his first goal largely because who was loaned out so many times and hardly got a Premier league game in a Chelsea shirt.
