Atsu scores first Premier League goal for Newcastle

  • Newcastle United's Jamaal Lascelles obscured celebrates with team-mates

Benitez was in the dug-out after being forced to miss the 1-0 win at Swansea a week ago due to complications from hernia surgery.

Atsu's opener came somewhat against the run of play because of Stoke's early control of possession, but the hosts wrestled control back for the remainder of the opening period after Matt Ritchie teed up the Ghanaian for a tap in at the back post.

Newcastle handed Stoke their first defeat since the opening day of the Premier League season thanks to Jamaal Lascelles' second half victor.

"We had clear-cut chances with Choupo-Moting and Diouf".

"We wanted to be strong in defence and create something in attack". It was a little bit different for us as Newcastle sat back, and they've got decent pace. "Today we weren't quite there in terms of creativity in the last third".

Benitez inspired his players by putting a phone call across to everyone prior to the match, while he also kept in touch with the coaching crew during the course of the Swansea game.

"It is a very competitive league and we are learning from that. We were not quite as accurate as we need to be".

Without suspended striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, Newcastle looked to Joselu up front but the former Stoke forward squandered three chances to increase Newcastle's lead.

"It was a good ball and Lascelles is active in the area".

Apparently, everyone gives their absolute best as they compete for playing minutes, with Benitez a rewarder of hard work as opposed to having favourites.

Man City must learn to deal with short turnaround, says Guardiola
Striker Aguero now has five goals in three games and has moved to within two goals of becoming City's all-time record goal scorer. Aguero was in uncompromising form in front of goal once again, and he has now scored nine goals in six games against the Hornets.
