Newcastle United started the new Premier League season in perfect fashion with a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

The Magpies, in front of a sellout St James’ Park crowd, found two goals in the second half to edge past the newly-promoted side.

Eddie Howe’s side dominated possession and created a host of chances but at one stage, it had a feeling of being one of those days.

However, that quickly changed when Fabian Schar rocketed a shot past Dean Henderson from distance on 58 minutes.

Callum Wilson then doubled United’s advantage 12 minutes before the end to wrap up three points for United.

Watching from the stands, as always, was the club’s owners of Amanda Staveley, Mehrdad Ghodoussi and Jamie Reuben.

And Reuben provided his reaction to the result - praising a strong display and brilliant St James’ Park atmosphere.

He tweeted: “TOON ARMY- Great performance and result. Atmosphere amazing.

“Thank you to all the @NUFC supporters. HWTL.”
