Watch the Newcastle 1 Atalanta 0 match highlights below.
A good tough run out for Newcastle United as they faced a team who were playing Champions League football last season and finished eighth in Serie A.
Elliot Anderson doing well to win the match winning penalty, which Chris Wood coolly dispatched.
Whilst Eddie Howe has kept back the likes of Bruno, ASM and Wilson for Saturday’s match, it was actually a very attacking line up. Considering the midfield trio were Anderson, Almiron and Sean Longstaff.
They all did well with Almiron and Anderson producing most of the attacking highlights, although Wood did ok as well as the game progressed. As well as his well taken penalty, linking up with others and at times playing in teammates with some decent passes.
Whilst at the other end of the pitch, Pope in control and last season’s first choice back four putting in some great work, especially late on, to help ensure the clean sheet and victory.
