Eddie Howe believes it was “vital” that Newcastle had the luxury of being able to make substitutions to protect players in their comfortable 4-1 win over Fulham at 10.

Newcastle went into the game with a depleted side due to injury and illness but, with the points nearly secured within an hour at Craven Cottage, Howe was able to knock out players such as Bruno Guimaraes, Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier.
