And the United legend turned pundit Alan Shearer has had his say on just how monumental the win is for the Toon.

Posting to social media, the Geordie wrote: 'Big win for the Toon,' alongside a black and white heart.

The ex-footballer tweeted throughout the match which saw the Magpies climb to sixth in the league.

Shearer was full of praise for Isak, Joelinton and 17-year-old Lewis Miley who assisted the Swede's opener.

"Iaaaaaassskkkkkkk boooooommmm what a pass from Miley," he wrote.

Miley made his senior debut for United against Chelsea in May, coming on as a substitute for the Toon's last game of the season.

Newcastle United will be back in action midweek in the Champions League for their second match against PSG.
