Jamal Lascelles defends Newcastle United team-mate Joselu

Liverpool's Spanish Manager Rafael Benitez gestures while Mark Hughes Manager of Manchester City watches during a Premier League match at Anfield in Liverpool north west England

Newcastle United climbed up to fourth in the table with a third successive Premier League win as Stoke City were unable to capitalise on some bad finishing from the home team.

Matt Ritchie by his own admission lucky not to be sent off for a Sadio Mane-style high boot on Swansea defender Alfie Mawson, produced something more cultured this time.

Rafael Benitez has warned his players' such profligacy will be punished by the Premier League's top teams.

"He knows he should have put a couple away, but it's no different from one of us losing the ball or not making a block at the back".

"There are things we are not doing well, but I can see where we can improve", said Newcastle's manager.

The winger got off the mark after pouncing on Matt Ritchie's cross with a vital touch in the 19th minute before Jamaal Lascelles headed home the victor for Raphael Benitez' men.

But Stoke's zonal marking system gave Lascelles an edge. We're going to get teams that are going to respect the ability we've got and sit back and try and soak up the pressure and we've got to be good enough to break teams down.

"We've been watching videos of Newcastle and then we concede an identical goal to theirs last week".

"We've got the right mentality, we've got the talent".

"Towards the end of the game we just made a mistake on the set play for them to take the lead for the second time".

"When I came here, we couldn't afford to make any mistakes".

Joselu missed a variety of good chances against the Potters as Atsu, Lascelles and Matt Ritchie displayed scintillating performances on the pitch.
