Newcastle United registered their first league win of the season against Fulham on Saturday thanks to a late wonder goal from Hatem Ben Arfa.

The enigmatic Frenchman netted in the 86th minute to hand the Magpies all three points at St. James’ Park after a rousing second-half performance from the home side.

The scoreline could have been far more convincing, but Fulham keeper David Stockdale was in fine form to deny Yoan Gouffran and Yohan Cabaye, while Papiss Cissé went close with a header that struck the crossbar.

Ben Arfa’s stunning strike ended a run of four home games without a goal for the Geordies, and with relief in the air on Tyneside, we grade each player’s performance against Martin Jol’s men.
