And while new hero Allan Saint-Maximin leaving the pitch with a hamstring injury would have been a disappointment, some supporters took solace in his on-field antics during the dramatic 90 minutes. 

The Magpies beat Southampton 2-1 courtesy of goals from Jonjo Shelvey and Federico Fernandez after in-form opposition striker Danny Ings originally gave the visitors a lead.

Whilst most viewers didn’t pick up on the moment, a handful of Magpies supporters watched on at his antics with a smile.

Here’s what they had to say on Twitter, with one fan dubbing Saint-Maximum as the “GOAT”.
