Pic Special: Newcastle 1 Fulham 0

A wonder goal from Hatem Ben Arfa earned Newcastle United their first Premier League win of the season, with a 1-0 victory over Fulham at St. James' Park on Saturday.

The French forward netted an outstanding individual effort with time running out, and it was no more than the Magpies deserved for a dominant display.

Captain Fabricio Coloccini, Mathieu Debuchy, Papiss Cisse and Yoan Gouffran all threatened but were unable to find a way through a stubborn Cottagers' backline.

However, Ben Arfa's moment of brilliance from the edge of the area finally broke the resistance, earning United all three points.
