Norwich 3 Newcastle 1 – Watch official match highlights here
It ended Norwich 3 Newcastle 1 on Saturday afternoon.
Newcastle going down to a defeat against a much weakened Norwich side.
A team that is strongly expected to be relegated, yet the Canaries absolutely dominated the Magpies.
The first half saw Joelinton put a header just wide from am Isaac Hayden cross but that was about as good as it got until the final seconds.
Longstaff setting Shelvey up for a very decent goal just before the final whistle.
All a bit meaningless though as Norwich had dominated up to that point and the Pukki hat-trick was the very least they deserved.
One of the worst aspects was that Newcastle gave up long before the final whistle.
