It was Ayoze, though, who was at fault for the move that led to Hendrick's goal.

The home side's Barnes then almost got some reward for his hard work with a low effort which Elliot had to tip wide.

Admittedly he doesn't score a lot of them, only four in the top tier in that time period, but on 12 September 2014 he scored as Southampton hammered Newcastle 4-0, then later that season did the same for Swansea as they won 3-2 at St James Park.

Newcastle United take on Burnley in the Premier League this evening. Jeff Hendrick provided Burnley's fifth home win of 2017 with an incisive close-range effort in the 74th minute.

And for Newcastle it was a 12th successive defeat on a Monday night - they'll be screaming to get the game switched the next time they're due on.

Indeed, Burnley jump above the Magpies with the win and into seventh on 16 points, while Rafael Benitez's men drop to ninth on 14 points.

"If you're in that Burnley boardroom - they're shrewd and they know what the cost is of going down - they might just be chucking a load of money at him and saying: "Give us seven more months, don't leave us without a manager for the rest of the season".

"You always have belief in your own squad and your own dressing room - maybe people from the outside wouldn't have thought we'd have started as well as we have, and maybe that's the case with Newcastle as well", Ward admitted.

Twitter reacts to Chargers' 21-13 loss vs. Patriots
For the second-straight week, the Patriots held an opposing quarterback to fewer than 300 yards (212). Both players have been crucial for the Patriots as they proceed without Julian Edelman (torn ACL).

"I'm exhausted now, we work hard and cover some ground".

Speculation has been rife ahead of tonight's clash, which will be live on Sky Sports, that manager Sean Dyche could leave for Everton, who sacked Ronald Koeman after a hard start to the season.

- Newcastle have conceded fewer first-half goals than any other Premier League side this season (one) and have only conceded one first-half goal in their last 13 Premier League games.

"To do a job of that quality with a club like Burnley, he has got to take unbelievable credit and I'm sure everyone; fans, players alike, will be very grateful for that". Generally we take each game as it comes.

"It was two teams who know what to do and little details could make the difference. We were not very precise on the ball and it is something we have to improve".

"They are an organised outfit with good individual players, good quality, and it will be a tough game but it will be one that we're ready for".

"I've never made out that we're an expansive side that can have 600 passes a game because I don't think that's relevant to this group - but we can play a bit".
