Ghanaian winger, Kamaldeen Sulemana was in a stellar form when Southampton visited high-flying Newcastle United at the St. James Park on Sunday afternoon.
The Magpies defeated the Saints 3-1 to boost their chances of making a return to the UCL for the first time since 2002/03.
Sulemana was a constant menace in the Newcastle defense with his darting runs and skills.
He hoisted a cross into the box which was latched on by Stuart Armstrong to give the Saints the lead in the first half before the host equalized through Callum Wilson in the second half.
Ambitious Newcastle in search of the winner found it in the 79th-minute when Sven Botman sent a header into the unfortunate Theo Walcott to finally hand the Magpies the lead.
Still with their foot on the gas, Newcastle then put the game to bed when Wilson kept his composure to round goalkeeper McCarthy and tuck in a third goal nine minutes from time.
The result leaves the Saints without a win in nine, languishing at the foot of the PL table six points from safety.
