Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez:

"For the effort, the way we were playing, we deserved to win.

"It's a pity because Joselu is working so hard but as a striker everybody is expecting you to score goals."

Burnley manager Sean Dyche:

"Newcastle started much better, we gave away a good goal and then our response was terrific.

"We've shown a lot of character. I'd have taken that after the first half because they were the better side. We still looked like we were finding our feet and it was almost a new group playing tonight, in the sense that they haven't played that many games together.

"It's frustrating when you haven't won for a while and we are having a tough run at the moment, but we've got 35 points on the board and we're back up to seventh in the Premier League."

Home is 'not so sweet' for Newcastle - the stats
◾Newcastle are winless in eight Premier League games at St James' Park (W0 D3 L5), their worst run since April 2009 (also eight without a win).
◾Burnley haven't won any of their last 51 Premier League games when they've conceded the first goal (D10 L41).
◾All three of Lascelles' goals in the Premier League this season have been headers from corners.
◾Joselu is the first Newcastle player to miss a Premier League penalty since Loic Remy on Boxing Day in 2013 against Stoke.
◾Pope has faced five Premier League penalties in just 22 appearances - Joselu's effort was the first one he has saved.
◾Kenedy became the first Brazilian to play for Newcastle in the Premier League since Claudio Cacapa in December 2008, and just the third Brazilian to appear for them in Premier League history along with Fumaca.
◾Karl Darlow is just the second Newcastle goalkeeper to score a Premier League own goal, after Shay Given in October 2007 against Everton.

Newcastle head to London to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park (14:15 GMT) on Sunday - their second visit to the capital in a week following the FA Cup exit at Chelsea.
