Stoke City 0 – Newcastle United 1
Match of the Day broadcasted on Tuesday night in England.
The flagship BBC round-up show covered all the Premier League matches on Tuesday and Wednesday night.
On Tuesday Newcastle won 1-0 at Stoke.
The hero for Newcastle was Ayoze Perez. He finished a breakaway goal in the 73rd minute to move the Magpies up to 13th in the division.
MOTD & Jacob Murphy
One of Newcastle’s standout players in the Stoke match was midfielder Jacob Murphy.
Murphy teed up Perez for the only goal of the game against the Potters.
Moreover, Murphy was industrious and one of the Magpies better players throughout the midweek match.
When it came to analysis of the Stoke match on Match of the Day, the pundits tried to single out Murphy for praise.
But the BBC made one cock-up. In one instance they tried to highlight Murphy’s run down the right hand side.
One problem – that was DeAndre Yedlin!

Mark Hughes & Stoke
Will Mark Hughes keep his job as Stoke City manager?
The latest reports on Wednesday are the Stoke are not going to sack Hughes before this weekend’s FA Cup match against Coventry City.
MOTD also looked at Hughes’s position at Stoke, arguing he’s likely to stay on due to a lack of available managers who could replace him.
