Magpies triumph as 10-man visitors face defeat: Player ratings

Newcastle sealed their victory against Fulham by a 3-0 win at St James’ Park despite a challenging week for the Magpies. 17-year-old Lewis Miley managed to score the first goal of his career with the club, eventually leading to Miguel Almiron and Dan Burn to also score throughout the match. Fulham faced significant setbacks, as Raul Jimenez’s early red card resulted in the team’s defeat. This victory propelled Newcastle to 6th place in the Premier League standings.

The game was expected to be quite entertaining given Newcastle’s domestic home form and Fulham’s confidence. This changed after Jimenez’s red card, which made it a question of whether the hosts could break down Fulham’s strong defense. Both teams faced early injuries, with Fulham having the best chance to score in the first period. However, the Magpies managed to secure the win after Miley’s goal was scored.

The game featured several standout players, with Lewis Miley scoring his first-ever Newcastle goal, and Miguel Almiron and Dan Burn also adding more goals. Eddie Howe, Newcastle’s manager, was commended for securing the much-needed win, given the team’s significant injury struggles.

On the other hand, Fulham’s goalie Bernd Leno played an important role in ensuring the game remained 0-0 at half-time. However, his efforts were not enough to prevent Newcastle from taking the lead. Fulham’s efforts were handicapped by Jimenez’s early dismissal, eventually leading to a loss against the Magpies.

The substantial challenges faced by both teams significantly influenced the game’s outcome. But despite the difficulties, Newcastle managed to clinch a crucial victory.
