It may have been a typical winter night in Newcastle as players shrugged off tightly wrapped jackets from even tighter base layers, but Newcastle began in hot form.
After just 70 seconds, the Magpies were causing trouble in Palace’s box, with Callum Wilson holding up the ball and feeding captain Jonjo Shelvey 18 yards out. Shelvey wasted no time in aiming at goal and rifled a first-time volley into the net.
Jairo Riedewald had the game’s modus operandi nailed, however, when Patrick van Aanholt forced the ball to him on the edge of the box. Mimicking Shelvey in the urgency and strength of his resulting shot, Riedewald cannoned home the equaliser with a remarkable drive worthy of pulling the Eagles level.
Urgency remained the buzzword of the night and the game would stay even for just a further four minutes. This time, Hodgson’s second lineup change Gary Cahill carried the attacking banner as he strove towards Eberechi Eze’s testing free-kick.
