Henri Saivet, Mohamed Diame and Christian Atsu found the back of the net for Newcastle United in a 3-2 English Premier League win over West Ham United on Saturday.

The African trio leading the Magpies up and out of the relegation zone with what was their first win since October.

Senegal international Saivet, in what was his first league game of the season, pulled the visitors level before Atsu teed up Diame to put the Tyneside club ahead eight minutes following the interval.

Ghana international Atsu then found the back of the net himself before Black Stars teammate Andre Ayew hammered home to give the Hammers some hope.

Newcastle, though. held firm to seal a valuable three points on the road.
