Ritchie delivered a delightful cross to allow Christian Atsu to open the scoring at the far post, while his corner was later headed home by Jamaal Lascelles to ensure Newcastle claimed all three points. "It gives us a big advantage in terms of our energy, which really counts when we play against teams who are older".

"What is important for us was to start winning and now it is to keep the momentum", the Spaniard told BBC 5 Live.

"There are a lot of positives to take from that game and I feel like we probably should have scored a few more goals than we did".

Matt Ritchie by his own admission lucky not to be sent off for a Sadio Mane-style high boot on Swansea defender Alfie Mawson, produced something more cultured this time. Stoke: Jack Butland 7, Kurt Zouma 6, Bruno Martins Indi 6, Kevin Wimmer 6, Mame Biram Diouf 7, Darren Fletcher 7, Joe Allen 7, Erik Pieters 6, Xherdan Shaqiri 8, Jese 7, Maxim Choupo-Moting 7.

"That was a different test for us today". "I didn't think we were poor, just not as good as in recent weeks".

The latest GOP plan to kill Obamacare has a new twist
Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Republicans who opposed previous repeal efforts, have not said where they stand. But if it can get through the Senate, it may have a chance in the House of Representatives, also run by Republicans.

The United captain perceives it as Newcastle having certain advantages and especially the level of commitment: "We've got the right mentality, we've got the talent".

Joselu has netted once in four Premier League games under compatriot Rafael Benitez since joining the North-East club; not a bad record, but not a great one, considering he was already in the division, and he'll be aiming to improve on that as the season progresses.

"We lacked the accuracy to release players in good areas to get clear-cut opportunities", he said.

"If it's not next week it will definitely be the week after".
