Just looking at the scoreline, you might be tempted to say, "same old Newcastle." They conceded, they couldn't score, they didn't look good.

Who impressed you? Who didn't register well? Vote in the player poll below. You must register a vote for all the starters. Rating the subs and Alan Pardew is optional. We'll have a results post later on this week.
