  1. There's the final whistle, and what a heartbreaker for Stoke. 1-0 up and crusing after 30 minutes, but two red cards and five goals later, and Newcastle claim a memorable home win.

  2. 90+1

    Cisse shoots on the turn after a defensive mix-up, but good save from Sorensen.

  3. 90

    Minimum of three minutes stoppage time to play.

  4. 89

    ANOTHER penalty shout, as Shawcross lunges in to stop Haidara getting his cross in

  5. 88

    Ben Arfa now tumbles over, wanting a penalty for the home side to no avail.

  6. 88

    Ben Arfa lashes the ball across the face of goal.

  7. 87

    Cisse loses his footing when brilliantly placed to bag his second.

  8. 82

    Another penalty shout for Newcastle as Cabaye tussles with Shawcross in the area.

  9. 80

    GOAL! Despite Remy being on a hat-trick, Cisse takes it and dispatches it excellently. 5-1.

  10. 79

    Can it get any worse for Stoke? Pieters fouls Ben Arfa as Newcastle are awarded a penalty...

  11. 71

    It could and should be five. Remy dinks in a cross and Gouffran can only head wide, albeit under pressure

  12. 68

    Muniesa is on for Nzonzi, as Stoke continue to try and shore up the defence with no striker on the field. Cisse comes on for Gouffran in Newcastle's final change.

  13. 66

    GOAL! Well and truly over for Stoke, now. Lovely one-touch football from Newcastle ends with Cabaye sidefooting home with a great effort. Hard on Stoke, and flattering on Newcastle.

  14. 63

    Another speculative hit from Cabaye from 30 yards out bobbles out for a goal kick.

  15. 62

    Well played Palacios. Remy is played in through the centre and turns one, but Palacios tracks back well to cover.

  16. 60

    Santon comes off for Newcastle, and is replaced by Haidara.

  17. 59

    Stoke aren't giving up to their credit. Adam plays in Walters who smashes his effort high and wide.

  18. 58

    Too little, too late for Stoke probably. Palacios replaces Crouch.

  19. 57

    Sublime from Ben Arfa. He gets the ball wide on the left before cutting inside past about four Stoke defenders. He eventually gets the shot away but it smashes off the angle of bar and post, with Remy's follow-up blocked.

  20. 55

    GOAL! Heartbreaking for Stoke. It's 3-1 now, and the numbers game is showing. Debuchy's cross finds Sissoko who should do better, but Remy is on hand to head home.
