Goal:

What a strike!!! Guimaraes releases Almiron down the right, who gets around Mitchell, enters the box, and curls a tight-angled shot into the top corner!!! What a breakaway goal, and what a way for Newcastle to go 1-0 up.

United won it thanks to Miguel Almiron’s winner in the first half. Howe looked back on the game and said:

“It was a perfect first half. Then, with the ball and our intensity, it was up there with one of our best performances.

“In the second half Crystal Palace came back into it, but we defended very well. We’ve had a perfect shape. The players have developed a good mentality to defending, and I think we needed to because Palace played well.”

And when asked if it was a significant night for Newcastle overall, Howe said: “It’s a great night for the football club. You can forget how hard it’s been to get us into this position. We have to look back with great satisfaction. I say it every week, but this is a great place to play football. The overall atmosphere was brilliant to experience.”

So, what’s next?

That victory sees Newcastle leapfrog Palace move up to 11th in the table, and, in doing so, win six consecutive home matches for the first time since the era of the great Sir Bobby Robson.

Palace, meanwhile, dropped to 14th, but their second-half performance showed just how threatening they could be in pursuit of further points before the season ends.
