Premier League, Newcastle United |  Newcastle in huge trouble again – salvaged a point against Luton


Two goals by Sean Longstaff in the first half looked for a while to be of little help to a struggling Newcastle team in the home game against weakly placed and relegation-tipped Luton.

Manager Eddie Howe’s crew in the cutting colors did indeed lead both 1–0 and 2–1 against the visitors from Bedfordshire northwest of London. But Luton constantly found large spaces to frolic in. And a quarter of an hour into the second half it was 2-4 at St. James’ Park.

The home team’s problems became particularly clear when left-back Dan Burn was outrun by Chiedozie Ogbene, and used two attempts to bring down the fast Irish-Nigerian.

The last offense occurred inside the 16-metre area, and after a check with VAR replays, referee Tom Bramall marked for a penalty kick.

Bizarre scenes

What happened in the seconds afterwards probably left many in both the Luton and Newcastle camps stunned. While Bramall stood with his back to the chalk mark and discussed with several of the hosts’ players, Carlton Morris realized that everything was ready to score the away team’s first leading goal of the day.

The Luton captain tripped forward towards the ball and rolled the ball into the net, not particularly well placed, but to the opposite side of where Newcastle keeper Martin Dúbravka chose to throw himself.

A proportion of the away supporters cheered for scoring alongside Morris, but the striker was left with a question mark when he realized that Bramall had not given the go-ahead.

– Carlton Morris was completely in his own world when he scored that penalty, and the referee stands and looks the other way. I don’t think I’ve seen that before, actually, pointed out Viaplay commentator Eivind Bisgaard Sundet.

Luton’s attacker thus had to do it all over again. And the way the 28-year-old did it followed the same recipe. Dúbravka went to his right, while the ball rolled into the goal on the left, without being conspicuously strongly placed.

– He puts it in exactly the same place. It’s done ice cold by Luton’s captain! praised Sundet.

– Then you must have a solid pan. When you go up and do exactly the same thing again, added Viaplay colleague Lars Tjærnås.

Even worse for the hosts

A few minutes after the 2-3 scoring, the away team scored a fourth goal, when Ross Barkley made a perfect preparation for goalscorer and spearhead Elijah Adebayo. Barkley, who was also responsible for the 2-2 goal on a return just before the change of sides, delivered a very solid game in the northeast.

Nevertheless, it would not be enough for another strong victory for an almost unison relegation tipped Luton.

Kieran Trippier made it 3-4 after a whipped-in cross from Bruno Guimarães, before Harvey Barnes equalized after a Barkley turnover inside Luton’s half. The latter should possibly have had a free kick in the situation where he lost the ball.

The same Newcastle Brazilian came close to getting another assist in the closing minutes, but Jacob Murphy finished over the crossbar.

– He is the emperor of outside passes. When you add up the number of players they have in the field, it’s almost unbelievable that Newcastle don’t take the lead, Tjærnås said.

When the home crowd were hoping for a decision in the Geordies’ favor in the ten-minute stoppage time, it was instead Luton who came closest. However, Dubravka was able to stop wing-back Ogbene’s attempt.

With 4-4 as the final result, Newcastle remain behind Manchester United in the Premier League table in a disappointing ninth place. Luton earned a one-point respite from Everton during the relegation zone.
