Loans: Trio on target

he told the Magpies' official site. "I was a little bit tired, but I really enjoyed it."

Bebe was also on the mark with a fine winner for Rio Ave in a 2-1 triumph against Academica. Showing great pace and control, he dribbled past the last man in defence before slipping his finish into the net.

Elsewhere, Angelo Henriquez was an unused substitute for Wigan in a 4-1 beating at Chelsea while Fabio missed QPR's defeat to Swansea by the same scoreline after picking up an injury last weekend. Of course, the Brazilian is also ruled out of next Saturday's clash with United. Both players are very much embroiled in a relegation battle with Wigan and QPR filling the two bottom slots in the Barclays Premier League.

On Friday night, Wilfried Zaha was a key factor behind Crystal Palace's recovery from two goals down to force a 2-2 draw at Watford. Veteran Kevin Phillips bagged the equaliser against his former club but Zaha's trickery once again caught the eye.

Federico Macheda came on in the 68th minute but could not prevent Stuttgart from crashing to a 4-1 home reverse to Werder Bremen. The Italian will be hoping for a start in a bid to help turn around the Bundesliga side's fortunes.
