Newcastle manager Steve Bruce:On Lazaro's red card: "With 10 seconds to go, does the referee really have to send him off? Is a yellow not sufficient? But rules are rules, and we will abide by it.

"He played very well today, we didn't find him enough - in wide areas, we ignored the lad. We needed to get it out to him, but he played very well.

"Our biggest problem all season has been evident - we have to create more of a threat in the opponent's area. We have to look at it and analyse it. Maybe change is sometimes for the best."

Newcastle have managed just one win in their last nine Premier League games (D3 L5).

Newcastle have failed to score in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since January 2016.
