Lascelles hails Newcastle character for Stoke win

Newcastle United climbed up to fourth in the table with a third successive Premier League win as Stoke City were unable to capitalise on some awful finishing from the home team.

But Lascelles, who headed the victor from a Ritchie corner at Swansea, did the same again on 68 minutes to earn the praise of his manager.

Newcastle fans have been taking to Twitter in the aftermath of the win over Stoke, with many reserving special praise for winger Matt Ritchie.

Joselu didn't realize the time he had with Chancel Mbemba's cross into the box, flicking a first-time effort wide of the far post against his former club.

Stoke enjoyed a wealth of early possession and quickly looked the brighter of the two sides, although their encouraging start counted for little when Newcastle broke the deadlock in the 19th minute.

Joselu was again guilty of failing to make the Potters pay just moments later, the 27-year-old this time unable to beat Butland in a one-on-one when Ayoze Perez's deflected strike fell kindly in the area.

In the 68th minute, Jamaal Lascelles restored the lead for the home side making it 2-1.

Christian Atsu scored his first-ever Premier League goal in his 10th appearance in the competition, despite making his English top-flight debut in August 2014.

"For a striker playing against Stoke, maybe even more".

Lascelles, the hero last week at Swansea, saw his goal-bound header deflect in off Kevin Wimmer midway through the second half to put the Magpies back in front.
