NEWCASTLE 1-3 FULHAM: THE VISITORS STUN NEWCASTLE TO BOOST CHAMPIONSHIPS PLAY-OFF HOPES AS WONDERKID


Ryan Sessegnon's reputation grew after scoring double in the win at St James' Park

The Cottagers showed current top six that they are the biggest threat and underlined their menace with a 3-1 win over Newcastle.

Fulham had not won on their last four visits to St James' Park - a run as far back as 2009

Sessegnon, who had been moved into a more advanced role by Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, put the ball on the spot in the 91st minute to take the Cottagers’ 10th penalty of the season.

But manager Jokanovic, who has been very protective of the Liverpool target since handing him his debut, clearly sent a message on to the pitch to remind defender Tim Ream he was on penalty duties.
