Photos: Newcastle United run riot against Norwich

St James Park

Newcastle United defeated Norwich City 6-2 this weekend.

Newcastle United fans had to wait a long time for their first Premier League win of the season but when it came it was a remarkable result that no one would have expected prior to kick-off.

When the final whistle blew on Sunday Newcastle had defeated Norwich City 6-2 with Georginio Wijnaldum scoring four of the goals and fellow summer signing Aleksandar Mitrovic also getting on the score-sheet.

Young striker Ayoze Perez was the other Newcastle goal-scorer on the day and the result lifted the gloom that has engulfed St James’ Park recently, while also lifting the Magpies to within two points of safety.

As the score-line suggests the match was an absolute humdinger and such was the defending on display there could have been even more than the eight goals that did find their way into the back of one net or the other.

Below is a selection of images from the match which saw Newcastle’s players finally show what they can do when they are firing on all cylinders:
