Manager Rafa Benitez was finally celebrating a first Premier League victory in 2018/19 as we entertained Watford at St James’ Park last Saturday.

Ayoze Perez’s first goal of the campaign returned a first three points of the campaign as we moved out of the bottom three places in the top-flight table and with ten games passing without victory, fans have certainly had to be patient.

Going into the game we could’ve had the unwanted record of becoming the first side in Premier League history to register six straight home defeats, but the narrow victory moves us past that one thankfully.

It didn’t all go our way though as we suffered further injury issues during the match, but all that matters, for now, was that win and lifting our spirits.

Fans were rightly celebrating come the full-time whistle and with the winless run not hanging around our necks anymore, a winning run would certainly be welcomed.
