Burnley boss Sean Dyche made three changes for the visit of Steve Bruce's Magpies as Ashley Barnes, Ashley Westwood and Phil Bardsley came in for Jay Rodriguez, Robbie Brady and Matt Lowton. Here are the scores as the hosts got back to winning ways.
1. Nick Pope 6
Had very little to do in terms of shot-stopping as Newcastle United failed to register an effort on target, but his presence was felt in the area as he came to collect crosses.
2. Phil Bardsley 6
Stuck tight to Joelinton as the former Hoffenheim forward struggled to get in to the game and just about did enough to force Carroll to head an Atsu wide in the first half.
3. Erik Pieters 5
The Dutchman's pass completion percentage would have been on the low side, but he battled well against Atsu and Manquillo. Caught out by Joelinton when Gayle went close, though probably deserved a free kick.
4. Ben Mee 7
Stuck to his task well as Carroll continued to prove himself a handful. The skipper brought a calmness to the defence, getting his foot on the ball when needed, but stuck in a boot or a head to break up the away side's attacks.
