Krul, Cabella & Abeid react on Twitter to Newcastle's West Brom win

Tim Krul

The Newcastle United trio took to Twitter after winning their fifth game in a row.

Five consecutive wins in all competitions - four in the Premier League. Who would have seen that coming for the Magpies when they were bottom of the table?

Sunday's 2-0 win against West Brom, however, achieved just that - and boss Alan Pardew was delighted after the game.

"It was a very disciplined, strong performance which was highlighted by an outstanding goal from Ayoze Perez. You need special moments like that in the Premier League," Pardew told BBC Sport after the win.

"That type of goal, you usually take the pace off the cross and guide it in but he actually added pace to it. Ayoze struggled with the physicality of Joleon Lescott and Craig Dawson today but he'll get better as we go on.

"We were a bit frustrated that we had not played as well as we could offensively in the first half, but the team is well balanced. We have good width and our system is proving difficult for the opposition."

And Pardew wasn't the only one, with a series of Newcastle stars taking to social media to tweet their celebrations after the win.

More and more Magpies are starting to use Twitter after games, which can only be seen as a good sign. The silence was deafening as defeat followed defeat earlier this campaign. But things are well and truly back on track at St James' Park now.
