Newcastle United came away with a 2-1 win over Stoke City despite wasting several chances in front of goal and manager Rafael Benitez has warned his players' such profligacy will be punished by the Premier League's top teams. The energy is there but we do have our own experience.

Meanwhile, Stoke defender Erik Pieters was frustrated at Lascelles' victor, which was headed from a Matt Ritchie corner.

The United captain perceives it as Newcastle having certain advantages and especially the level of commitment: "We've got the right mentality, we've got the talent". We'd be looking at each other like 'who's going to step up?'

A couple of seasons back, we'd go a goal down or concede a goal and heads would drop.

But Stoke's zonal marking system gave Lascelles an edge.

"We know they're going to be strong in that area, but still we have to make it as hard as possible when they come charging in and we didn't".

The Magpies might have won more comfortably had former Stoke striker Joselu taken any of the three chances which came his way, although they were grateful to keeper Rob Elliot for three saves to deny Shaqiri twice and Mame Biram Diouf.

"Of course people want you to sign players for £25million and bring in big names - everybody wants to do that, but we're working with what we've got".

"Last week (against Swansea), I managed to get myself into a good area and I was disappointed I didn't score in the first half".

"We can really get about the pitch and get down in people's boots", he added. We need to make sure that we keep getting better.
