Early goals from Chris Wood, from the penalty spot, Miguel Almirón and Joelinton brought Newcastle a 10th win in 11 games in all competitions against one of the division’s supposed in-form teams, for whom the six-week international break in Qatar proved a block rather than a spur. On this evidence, Newcastle should relish hosting these opponents again in a fortnight in the Carabao Cup quarter-final.

Everton 1-0 Wolves (Mina, 7 mins)A bit of a technical hiccup here saw a couple of entries disappear somewhere between my computer and the rest of the world. Anyway, Yerry Mina scored a while ago, heading in from a corner after his marker fell over. GOAL! Southampton 0-1 Brighton (Lallana, 14 mins)A lovely move from Brighton ends with a cross from the right-hand corner of the area, and a nicely-judged glancing header from Adam Lallana. In truth it was too close to the keeper, who should have pushed it to safety but opted instead to flap it in haplessly. Adam Lallana of Brighton & Hove Albion heads in.

GOAL! Leicester 0-1 Newcastle (Wood, 3 mins)And that’s how to take a penalty. The goalkeeper dives to his left and the ball goes hard and high the other way. Newcastle United's New Zealand striker Chris Wood scores. Photograph: Lindsey Parnaby/AFP/Getty ImagesPenalty to Newcastle! Less than two minutes on the clock and Amartey has brought down Joelinton.

“The local Southport Visitor newspaper headlined their match report, “SOUTHPORT CAN’T ’OLDAM. ” The Boxing Day game that stands out in my memory was travelling to watch my team (Watford) at Fulham in 2000. We lost 5-0 and afterwards I remember talking to Jeremy Alexander, who was reporting on the game for the Guardian, had to file the teams in formation and wasn’t sure given the chaos what Watford’s shape had been.

Much more here:Ed Aarons was at Selhurst Park to see Fulham romp to three goals and just as many points: Patrick Vieira must be wondering how his side got this so wrong. Crystal Palace’s hopes of recording a fourth successive home victory in the Premier League for the first time in their history were destroyed in a three-minute spell in the first half by a clinical Fulham team led by the brilliant Aleksandar Mitrovic. The disastrous defending that allowed Bobby DeCordova-Reid to open the scoring on 31 minutes was compounded by Tyrick Mitchell’s rush of blood to the head that earned him a straight red card and left Vieira’s side with a mountain to climb. Another red card for James Tomkins – making his first Premier League start since Boxing Day last year in absence of the suspended Marc Guehi – and further goals from Fulham’s captain Tim Ream and Mitrovic, with his tenth of the campaign, swept Marco Silva’s side to a deserved victory that leaves them level on points with Liverpool.
