The 1-0 victory over Fulham propels Newcastle to third place in the EPL standings.
Manager Eddie Howe said that Alexander Isak made sure the "effort was worth it." The Newcastle striker scored in the 89th minute to celebrate his injury-related comeback against Fulham.
It occurred after Aleksandar Mitrovic's surprise conversion of a Fulham penalty was overturned due to the player slipping while striking the ball and accidentally kicking it onto his standing foot.
Despite failing to create any clear opportunities, Newcastle prevailed in a thrilling final 30 minutes of a close game. Isak ultimately defeated striking partner Callum Wilson with a knockdown. Isak scored from close range at St. James' Park to put Newcastle back in third place in the Premier League.
