Newcastle United bounced back to success by defeating Fulham, as they returned to their winning form in the Premier League. Additionally, the match between Bournemouth and Luton Town had to be called off.

After their disappointment in the UEFA Champions League, Newcastle United responded strongly by securing a convincing 3-0 win against Fulham, who were reduced to 10 men, at St James’ Park. The Magpies had been facing difficulties in the Premier League but managed to regain their momentum against a lackluster Cottagers team.

Manager Eddie Howe implemented some modifications to the initial lineup, bringing back Dan Burn as the left-back and shifting Tino Livramento to his preferred right-hand side. Sean Longstaff also made a successful return, while the 17-year-old Lewis Miley was omitted from the starting lineup and placed on the substitutes’ bench. The sight of Sven Botman making a comeback after a prolonged injury brought joy to the Toon Army.

Unfortunately, Newcastle’s troubles with injuries persisted as Joelinton and Fabian Schar were compelled to leave the game during the first half. Prior to that, Fulham’s team was reduced to 10 players when Raul Jimenez was given a red card for a reckless tackle on Longstaff.

In the 56th minute, it was Miley who put Newcastle in the lead, all thanks to the exceptional skills displayed by Bruno Guimaraes with his feet. Miguel Almiron extended the advantage by calmly placing the ball in the unguarded net following a foul on Callum Wilson by Antonee Robinson. Burn secured the win with a forceful header from Guimaraes’ delivery.

In unrelated developments, the clash between Luton and Bournemouth came to an abrupt halt due to a medical crisis. Tom Lockyer, Luton’s captain, unexpectedly collapsed without any interference and received prompt medical attention. As a result, the match was temporarily halted and ultimately called off, with Lockyer being carried off the pitch on a stretcher. The outcome of the game is still undecided.

In general, Newcastle had a favorable outcome as they left their European disappointment in the past. The comeback of important players and the impressive win will undoubtedly elevate their self-assurance for future endeavors.
