Man of the match: Hee-Chan Hwang
Wolves boss Bruno Lage: “He [Hwang] has adapted to the Premier League, he fits our way of playing because we need a player like him.” he added. “I believe the players want to play with the ball. Top players can enjoy our game and he is a top player, like the other guys. I knew him before because when I was at Benfica I had some reports on him. But it’s not just about Hwang, what I want is to take the best from all the players.”
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce: “There was nothing in it either way. I didn’t think we deserved to get beaten.” he added. “The first thing I always do is analyze myself, could I do anything differently? I always analyze that. We will have a look at the game, I didn’t think we deserved to get beaten but I have said that too many times.
