Newcastle 2 Southampton 2 match highlights and all four goals – Watch them here
Watch the Newcastle 2 Southampton match highlights below.
See all four goals in an eventful match that threw up plenty of talking points.
Including how on earth Djenepo manages to miss an open goal from three yards out, surely a moment destined for many a ‘How did he miss that???’ compilation.
Against the run of play Newcastle United took the lead twice against a Southampton side who dominated possession and the number of shots / chances.
However, as you can see in these brief highlights below, Newcastle scoring a couple of very well worked goals, even Joelinton making a key contribution!
Poor defending from NUFC on the first equaliser and then VAR playing a key role in the eventually given penalty and second equaliser.
Now we face a two week break before facing Manchester United and Ronaldo…
