There was a particular talking point to come from Newcastle United’s trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley for the Monday evening television slot and it didn’t have anything to do with the final result.

Manager Rafa Benitez’s side secured a 2-1 victory with an early Ben Mee credited own goal and an effort from Republic of Ireland international defender Ciaran Clark, and having held on for the win it was our third Premier League victory on the spin.

Had we not taken all three points given the control we had on the tie for large parts of the game it would’ve been disappointing, but undoubtedly the margin of victory should’ve been slightly larger because winger Matt Ritchie had a gilt-edged chance to add his own name to the scoresheet.

DeAndre Yedlin provided the delivery and the £12million former Bournemouth man somehow conspired to miss from two yards out when presented with an open goal.

Reaction on social media, most fans simply couldn’t believe it and the expected jokes came out.

Misses like that happen, you have to laugh and move on but good to see his efforts overall get some praise despite that moment.
