Managers’ reaction

Wolves manager Bruno Lage: “I think we deserved more the three points. It’s hard to go inside and see the frustration of my players because it was an unlucky goal, and then the other decisions, VAR every time was against us, so that causes frustration.

“It should have been red card in my opinion. In the other situation, the referee comes to watch and take a decision about the goal. Why didn’t he come to take a decision about this one?”

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe: “Mixed emotions for me. First half, I thought we weren’t particularly great. That was frustrating because I thought we could have imposed ourselves more.

“But then very pleased with the second half. We penned them in and we had a number of chances and arguably should have won the game.”
