Jamal Lewis, Jeff Hendrick and Callum Wilson all made their full debuts for the team, with each one playing their part in the opening day win.

It isn’t rare for a Newcastle United opening weekend fixture to end with a discussion about a club in crisis.

There were signs of an understanding developing with Callum Wilson, as the striker was always looking to run into the near post when Lewis got into a crossing position.

Many were surprised to see Jeff Hendrick on the team sheet, especially as Miguel Almiron started on the bench.

He got the assist for the opening goal with a clever flick on to Callum Wilson, before following this up with a fine strike of his own.

Against West Ham, he completed two tackles and made a further interception.

Hendrick had an xA (expected assists) of 0.79 on Saturday.
