Newcastle United got their first win of the season as Joselu, Ciaran Clark and Aleksandar Mitrovic fired them to a 3-0 victory over West Ham on Saturday. New Castle United who had not won any competitive match since they beat Barnsley on the last day of the 2016-17 Championship season, fully deserved to take three points at St James’ Park.
Joselu scored his first goal for the club nine min before half-time and their lead rarely looked in doubt before Clark’s header made it 2-0 on 72 min.
West Ham United, who lost their first league game of the season, by conceding seven goals in the process, looked like a team which was down in confidence as they failed to convert the lead given by Joselu.
Javier Hernandez, who scored twice in the 3-2 loss at Southampton, came closest to an equaliser before Clark and Mitrovic made the most of some dreadful defending to put the result beyond doubt.
