Norwich 3 – Newcastle 1
Last weekend at Carrow Road, Norwich City recorded their first win of the season.
Norwich looked excellent against a hapless Newcastle side in a 3-1 victory.
Teemu Pukki, the Finnish striker who joined Norwich as a free agent, scored a superb hat-trick against the Magpies.
Jonjo Shelvey scored a late consolation for the Toon.
Paul Dummett’s shocking claim about the warm-up vs Norwich
Since the Norwich defeat, many Newcastle fans have been shocked by post-match comments from defender Paul Dummett.
Dummett, 27, was rolled out to speak to NUTV after the loss.
In a remarkable statement about Newcastle’s warm-up at Carrow Road, Dummett admitted that “it wasn’t right”.
How can Newcastle be screwing up their warm-up after just two games this season?
🗣️ “Every one of us has got to look in the mirror and know it’s not good enough.”

Joelinton should be fit for Tottenham
Next up for Newcastle is a match away at Tottenham on Sunday.
Will Newcastle lose their third match in a row against Spurs?
In a boost for the Magpies, the Telegraph have revealed that record signing Joelinton should be fit for Tottenham:
The £40m summer arrival from Hoffenheim limped off with a hip problem at Carrow Road, but the Brazilian will be fit enough to play against Tottenham Hotspur next weekend.
A scan has shown there was no significant damage to the 23-year-old.
Joelinton is yet to score in the Premier League.
