Christian Atsu's sparkling performance helped Newcastle out of the bottom three with a 3-2 win against West Ham.
Newcastle went behind early as Marko Arnautovic intercepted an errant midfield pass and scored past Rob Elliot in just the sixth minute. But the Magpies answered right back just four minutes later with a Henri Saivet free kick following a foul on Atsu. After a back-and-forth first half, Mohamed Diame gave Newcastle the lead with his first goal of the season as Atsu danced past two defenders and found Diame streaking through the middle of the area. Minutes later, Elliot preserved the lead with a massive penalty save on Andre Ayew, and in the 61st minute, it was Atsu once again who proved the difference maker: Scoring the insurance goal Newcastle needed to earn three points and move up the table.
