But Christian Atsu restored Newcastle's lead in the 45th minute- Newcastle broke at pace with Isaac Hayden and his ball to Mitrovic was in turn rolled into the path of Atsu who tucked home from close range.

Before Matt Ritchie registered his name on the score sheet with the third goal in 65th minute and Richie completed the onslaught in the 82nd minute.
