Eddie Howe reacts to Newcastle United’s impressive win - and that Joelinton two-goal show

Newcastle United’s impressive 3-0 win saw them climb into the Premier League top half.

Newcastle United hit the top half of the Premier League with a comfortable 3-0 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road.

And it was their resident Brazilian contingent that ensured all three points head back up to Tyneside with the Magpies.

Two goals from Joelinton on his 100th Premier League appearance and one from Bruno Guimaraes won it for Newcastle.

And here’s how Eddie Howe reacted to the win.

“It is an important win for our standards and what we expect of one another,” he said. “We knew it would be a difficult game today and the start was. It wasn’t until we scored the first goal that we got control of it.

“Credit to the platers again. They have incredible desire to go and win football matches at the moment and there is confidence running through the team. Really pleased.

“It is a lot of hard work, great team spirit and unity. Quality on the pitch as well. But it is a lot of factors from top to bottom of the club. Our supporters have played a big role too.”

On Joelinton, Howe added: “I have a great relationship with him. Really like him as a player. He has so much ability.

“The two goals were so great for him to score. Two different goals. We needed the first. He played dual roles today as he has done most of the season. He started up front and then moved to the left wing.

“We love him to bits. It is great that he has built the relationship with the supporters.”
