The Magpies made a decent start to the game and got their noses ahead in the second minute when Jacob Murphy found the back of the net. Joeltinon doubled Newcastle’s lead just four minutes later before Murphy scored again in the ninth minute. Aleksander Isak scored a quick-fire brace soon after as Eddie Howe’s men went into the half-time break 5-0 up on the scoreline.
