PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Newcastle United supporters have been left delighted after Eddie Howe's side made a 'perfect start' to the new season with a comfortable win over Nottingham Forest. Second-half strikes from Fabian Schar and Callum Wilson were enough to hand the dominant hosts all three points. Howe resisted the temptation to hand Sven Botman his competitive black-and-white debut from the start, with the summer signing only introduced in the final minute as a substitute. Nick Pope was named in goal ahead of Martin Dubravka, while Miguel Almiron continued in attack alongside Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson. Newcastle dominated proceedings throughout at St James' Park, but were unable to make the breakthrough in the first-half of the contest.
