Newcastle beats stoke 5-1 in Premier League
French striker Loic Remy netted twice Thursday as Newcastle
routed nine-man Stoke 5-1 in the Premier League to stay within
striking distance of the top four.
Stoke went ahead in the 29th minute but faced a nearly
impossible task after Glenn Whelan earned a second yellow card in
the 40th minute and Marc Wilson was given a straight red card three
minutes later for hauling Remy down inside the box.
Remy’s penalty was saved by Thomas Sorensen but the Frenchman
equalized seconds later with a deflected effort.
The hosts then dominated after the break with Yoan Gouffran
making it 2-1 in the 48th before Remy added his second eight
minutes later. Yohan Cabaye and Papiss Cisse completed the
Newcastle is sixth, while Stoke is 10th.
