That goal from Jonjo Shelvey tonight, sheer class. When he's on form he really is an exciting player. Still has time on his side too.

Shelvey comfortably MoM with a performance reminiscent of his Prem heyday. Wonderful array of passing and his second goal was a peach.

Newcastle have enjoyed a strong start to life in the Championship under manager Rafa Benitez despite suffering two early losses in their campaign.
The Toon have picked up 15 points from their opening seven games in England’s second tier and have already beaten Reading, Bristol, Cheltenham, Brighton and Derby this term.
The St James’ Park outfit were relegated under Benitez last season but retained his services and will be looking to pick up their sixth win in eight games against Wolves on Saturday.
