Newcastle United secured a victory for the first time this season by defeating Watford 1-0 on Saturday, a result which saw the Magpies rise out of the relegation zone.
Rafael Benitez’s side had previously picked up just two points from their opening 10 matches before Ayoze Perez secured all three points with his first goal of the season.
While it may have taken longer than many would have hoped, the victory over the Hornets marked Newcastle’s 50th victory under Benitez and fans were asked to select their favourite win from his years in charge.
That lead to a variety of responses, with some selecting results from previous Premier League campaigns and others highlighting victories from the club’s successful campaign in the Championship – and it seemed supports enjoyed remembering fonder times.
There is no doubt that Benitez would trade all of his success at Newcastle for the club’s top-flight status this season and there is work to be done over the coming weeks but, for now, fans have turned back the clock to yesteryear.
