Newcastle ended their six-match winless run in the league as Eddie Howe's men swept to a 4-1 rout of 10-man Fulham at Craven Cottage. Fulham's Nathaniel Chalobah was sent off after eight minutes for a reckless lunge on Sean Longstaff.
Callum Wilson volleyed home after 11 minutes before Miguel Almiron fired into the top corner in the 33rd minute. Longstaff bagged the third goal three minutes before half-time and Almiron struck again in the 57th minute.
Bobby De Cordova-Reid's 88th minute goal was no consolation for Fulham. Everton won 2-1 at Southampton as Conor Coady and Dwight McNeil both scored their first goals for the club after Joe Aribo put the hosts in front.
Bournemouth and Brentford shared a goalless draw at Dean Court. Both teams had chances to score but in the end neither could and Bournemouth sit in twelfth while Brentford are one point above them in tenth.
