Steve Bruce has finally done it. After two rather frustrating performances in his opening matches as Newcastle boss, he has now won a game.
It came in rather surprising circumstances too, defeating Champions League finalists Tottenham courtesy of Joelinton.
Providing the assist was Christian Atsu who for the first time since December 2017, created a strike for his teammates.
The performance of the winger didn’t go unnoticed as many supporters took to Twitter to laud his display.
It was hailed as the 27-year-old’s best game for the club by one fan as another said he felt like a new signing this season.
The Ghanaian was called a breath of fresh air whilst a further individual said he produced a magnificent outing.

Against Spurs, he didn’t even start the game, being introduced as a substitute after just 17 minutes for Allan Saint-Maximin.
Here’s the best of the reaction from his showing on Sunday afternoon.
Atsu has been class. ?
