Newcastle deservedly went in front as Chris Gayle headed home from close range after Thiabut Courtois' failure to keep it out in the opening minute.

Newcastle sealed an impressive 10th place finish on their return to the top-flight thanks to two second-half goals from Ayoze Perez after Dwight Gayle opened the scoring before the interval.

Aside from being a rock at the back, Florian Lejeune made a vital assist for Newcastle's third of the night, which effectively sealed all three points for the Magpies. Whether Conte will still be in charge may come in to question now given the Chelsea board's trigger-happy nature.

The top-four was a remote possibility before kick-off but that was barely a secondary concern here, with a shot at redemption and a piece of silverware within reach next weekend.

Conte's side still have the incentive of silverware to play for when they face Manchester United in the FA Cup final next Saturday.

The only contribution from Eden Hazard, who has been resurgent in recent weeks, was the ninth worst passing accuracy of all 22 starters (80 per cent success rate), and he was outshone by Jonjo Shelvey.

"Last season he helped me a lot during the season".

Ashley can also stop his private development of hotels, retail and student accommodation on land opposite the Gallowgate, which means realistically it would stop the stadium ever being extended, then do a proper public feasibility study as to whether St James Park can be increased in capacity. This might lead to a massive squad overhaul in the upcoming summer, which might include the potential sacking of head coach Antonio Conte. I don't know anything about our end of season.

With this progress in mind, what is Newcastle's ceiling for next season?

The Magpies must use their end of season run to push on for more next season.

"They don't deserve the performance their team put on".

Don't tell these clubs they had nothing to play for... "There are other people to judge our season and [say] which are the problems to finish out of the Champions League". They needed Liverpool to lose at home to Brighton, who secured their safety a week ago. Conte's troubles are a enormous flashing distress signal. Well done AGAIN to all the fans for sticking with the team when at times it was tough. Their issues go beyond the manager.

"For Conte, I'd be amazed if we see him on the touchline for Chelsea next year, he just looks like he wants to get away now", Redknapp said.
