Game Report

Highlights

Teemu Pukki scored a superb hat-trick as Norwich swept aside Newcastle for their first win since returning to the Premier League. It was a finishing masterclass from Pukki who took all three of his goals clinically.

Detail

There were chances at either end in the early stages. Pukki saw a couple of presentable ones go begging whilst Todd Cantwell was denied by Martin Dubravka.

Newcastle had a couple of glorious opportunities of their own which would've changed the complexion of the game had they taken them. Emil Krafth rushed his finish at the back-post whilst new striker Joelinton headed wide from point-blank range.

Norwich went in front with a sensational goal from their main man. A cross was cleared up in the air and Pukki arrived onto it with a first-time volley that flew into the net.

The second half became all about Pukki as his finishing proved the difference between the two sides. The Finnish striker reversed in from the edge of the box for his second and coolly completed his hat-trick too - after good work from Cantwell.

Newcastle lost Joelinton to injury and looked toothless in attack for much of the second half. Jonjo Shelvey did score a well taken consolation in stoppage-time.

Summary

With four goals in two games, it's been a brilliant start to the season from Pukki and if he can keep this level up, Norwich have a great chance of survival. Newcastle were timid in front of goal in comparison.
