Newcastle United 1-0 Fulham highlights and reactions

Report and free highlights as Alexander Isak grabbed Newcastle a late 1-0 victory against Fulham; defeat difficult for visitors to take after Aleksandar Mitrovic’s converted penalty was ruled out because of an illegal double touch; win sees Newcastle up to third; Fulham stay sixth.Newcastle United 1-0 Fulham highlights and reactions

Substitute Alexander Isak grabbed Newcastle a late 1-0 victory against Fulham after Aleksandar Mitrovic’s converted second-half penalty was ruled out after the striker made contact with the ball twice.

Isak popped up in the 89th minute to head home from close range to break Fulham hearts and spark wild celebrations from the St James’ Park crowd.

However, it could have been so different for Fulham, who will find defeat difficult to take. They were awarded a 68th-minute penalty following a lengthy VAR review after Kieran Trippier’s challenge on Bobby Decordova-Reid just inside the penalty area.Mitrovic dispatched the spot-kick past Nick Pope, but he did so illegally having slipped and made contact with the ball twice, so referee Robert Jones disallowed the goal.

The penalty law…

The law… Under IFAB Law 14, which details penalty kicks, the laws state that an offence is deemed to have occurred if: “The kicker touches the ball again before it has touched another player. An indirect free kick (or direct free kick for a handball offence) is awarded.”

It proved a return to Newcastle to forget for Mitrovic as Fulham, who stay sixth, saw their five-game unbeaten run in all competitions come to an end. But it could prove to be a crucial win for Newcastle, who were heading for a third straight 0-0 draw in the league, as they move back into third ahead of Manchester United on goal difference.
