West Ham 2 Newcastle 3 – Watch all 3 brilliant goals here in the official match highlights
It ended West Ham 2 Newcastle 3 on Saturday.
Newcastle scoring twice in the first 22 minutes and could have been six up at half-time.
Saint-Maximin sent clear one on one with the keeper twice, Almiron denied, Shelvey hitting the bar.
Shelvey made it 3-0 with a class free-kick five minutes after half-time and surely that was game over.
However, Steve Bruce went very defensive and two goals later it was only 3-2 to the Geordie boys going into FIVE minutes of added time.
Newcastle though seeing it out and a much needed three goals and three points!
