Newcastle United handled business against Fulham in a big way as Eddie Howe’s men put four past their hosts in London.

Newcastle United are back to their winning ways after goals from Callum Wilson, Miguel Almiron (x2), and Sean Longstaff silenced Craven Cottage. Fulham went down to ten men early on as a result of Nathaniel Chalobah’s red card and simply collapsed after that.

Newcastle United displayed a sense of urgency from start to finish and that dedication on and off the ball led to a comfortable victory. Fans on Twitter were concerned when a weaker lineup was announced, but those deployed by Howe got the job done in style.

What’s more important is that Newcastle United learned key lessons from their 1-1 draw against Bournemouth. The Magpies struggled to break the Cherries down as they defended in large numbers, but creativity was not lacking today.

Newcastle United will command respect from upcoming rivals after this big win.

With 19 shots attempts, half of which were on target, and over 600 completed passes, Newcastle United showed great composure on the ball and an even better commitment to finding the back of the net.

Howe will be relieved that his troops found different ways to score each goal, and his side’s clinical finishing played a major role in putting an end to sharing the spoils with opposition.

With Newcastle United ranked eighth in terms of goals scored, third in shot attempts, and fifth in clean sheets, the Magpies’ upcoming opponents will be cautious against a team that brewing confidence on both ends of the pitch.
