Pic Special: Fulham 5 Newcastle 2

On the back of three straight wins at the start of 2012, Newcastle slipped to their heaviest defeat of the season against Fulham in a textbook game of two halves.

United controlled the first period, and deservedly led through Danny Guthrie's spectacular strike just before the break.

But from the moment Davide Santon was penalised for a foul on Damien Duff which may well have ocurred outside the box, and Danny Murphy converted his spot-kick, it was a different game.

The home side quickly racked up three more goals and, despite Hatem Ben Arfa scoring his third of the season to make it 4-2, the Magpies' misery was complete when Clint Dempsey got his hat-trick late on.

Win, lose or draw, however, Club Photograper Ian Horrocks can be relied upon to bring nufc.co.uk the action.
