Newcastle was penalised for not scoring in the first half: Newcastle
but Palace only had one in the first half. Would a goal have been enough to break the dam? Maybe! A chipped attempt by Alexander Isak on a 30-yard breakaway was stopped by a superb Guaita, who was named Man of the Match. Joelinton narrowly missed the goal

Although VAR casts doubt on many viewpoints,
one thing is certain and obvious: Joe Willock rocked Guaita on what appeared to be a Tyrick Mitchell own goal because Mitchell shoved the advancing Magpie into the goalkeeper.
