Faustino Asprilla was pleased wth Newcastle United’s win against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.

Faustino Asprilla has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Newcastle United’s win against Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.

Newcastle returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a narrow 1-0 triumph over Palace at home.

Former Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend’s goal just before the hour mark proved to be the difference between the two sides at St. James’ Park.

Former Newcastle forward Asprilla has suggested on Twitter that Saturday’s win means that the Magpies will retain their Premier League status for next season.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon, hosts Newcastle had 50% of the possession, took 10 shots of which four were on target, and earned four corners.

The Magpies are 17th in the Premier League table at the moment with 33 points from 36 matches.

Rafael Benitez’s side are a point clear of the relegation zone, although both Norwich City and Sunderland have a game in hand.
