It was the striker’s fourth goal since joining the club on loan from West Brom and proved pivotal in turning the game in favour of the visitors.

It was Newcastle’s first win in four matches to ease their relegation worries against David Wagner’s side – who themselves will look for a run of results over Christmas to get them away from the dropzone.

Wolves, meanwhile, are up to seventh place as Raul Jimenez’s 12th minute goal and Ivan Cavaleiro’s 94th minute effort wrapped up a 2-0 win at Molineux that condemned Bournemouth to a sixth defeat in their last seven games.

The opening goal of the game came from an unforced error, when some sloppy play at the back led to Diogo Jota latching onto a loose pass.

Jota darted into the box and provided the cross for Jimenez to finish from close range.

Cavaleiro rounded off the victory in stoppage time to leave Nuno Espirito Santo’s side one point behind Manchester United in sixth.

Watford caught the eye in a stylish 3-2 win over Cardiff at Vicarage Road that left Neil Warnock’s side just four points above the relegation zone.

Javi Gracia’s team took the lead in the 16th minute thanks to a superb solo strike from former Barcelona forward Gerard Deulofeu.

Jose Holebas was next to impress, netting with a blistering 20-yard drive in the 52nd minute before teenager Domingos Quina bagged his first Premier League goal with a fine effort in the 68th minute.

Cardiff got one back through Junior Hoilett in the 80th minute before Bobby Reid’s 82nd minute strike set up a tense finish.
