DeAndre Yedlin isn’t known for his ability in front of goal, but the right back made the most of a push up the field against AFC Bournemouth.
Yedlin tied the match at St. James Park on Saturday, with a diving header past Aaron Ramsdale. A cross from Allan Saint-Maximin caught a deflection on the way towards goal, but Yedlin raced into the box and dove to score his first goal of the season.
The teams went into the halftime break tied 1-1 on Tyneside after Yedlin scored his first goal since last season at Manchester City.
A win for Newcastle moves them up near the top-half of the table, as they currently sit in 16th place.
