Newcastle United made it three straight Premier League wins with a 2-1 success away to struggling Burnley on Monday night.
An own goal from Ben Mee saw Newcastle take a fourth-minute lead, before Ciaran Clark doubled the away side’s advantage in the 23rd minute.
Sam Vokes had one back for Burnley before the break, but that was how the scoring finished as Newcastle collected another three points.
The Magpies have now moved into 13th position in the Premier League table, and appear to be very much on the right track following a poor start to the season.
The Newcastle fans were fairly active on social media during the match, and a large number were keen to pay tribute to the performance of Mohamed Diame.
Playmaker FC’s Matchday with Max caught up with Jamaica’s women’s team. See what happened when he met the history makers in the video below…
The 31-year-old put in an all-action display in the middle of the park, and the 6ft ace’s commitment to the cause did not go unnoticed by the Newcastle supporters.

Anyone thinking they see a Shelvey / Ki midfield absolutely no chance given the job Mo Diame does for this team, which goes a lot without praise #nufc

2-0 and fully deserved. Diame bossing the midfield. #nufc

Big fan of the way Mo Diame flings himself at players and somehow dispossesses them #nufc

Diame all over the place. But in a good way #NUFC
