Comments:

Gabriel Martinelli was originally named in the starting line-up before suffering an ankle injury in the pre-match warm-up. Reiss Nelson was promoted to the starting XI. Emile Smith Rowe was initially shown a red card after 90 minutes for serious foul play but was downgraded to a yellow card following a VAR review.

Comments:

Newcastle United named only seven of a possible nine substitutes.
