Newcastle thrashed 10-man Morecambe to ease into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

The Premier League side outclassed their League Two opponents scoring five times before the break, for the first time since 1993.

Joelinton scored twice, with Miguel Almiron, Jacob Murphy, Isaac Hayden, Jamaal Lascelles and a Sam Lavelle own goal adding to the tally.

The hosts were 4-0 down when Toumani Diagouraga was sent off.

Morecambe came into the tie on the back of a 5-0 home defeat against Cambridge.

And it looked like being a long evening for the hosts when £40m striker Joelinton opened the scoring after five minutes, with his close-range finish coming after good work from Emil Krafth and Miguel Almiron.

From there Steve Bruce's side went through the gears. Almiron rounded Morecambe goalkeeper Mark Halstead to add a second.

The Magpies' third came via Murphy's curling effort from 18 yards, before Joelinton scored arguably the pick of the goals with a superb arcing shot from 25 yards that flew into the top right corner.

Hayden's long range effort and Lascelles' near-post header had looked like rounding off the scoring until Lavelle's unfortunate late own goal confirmed Newcastle's biggest ever competitive away win.

'We are certainly stronger' - what they said

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce talking to BBC Radio 5 Live: "The attitude really pleased me. We set about them and moved the ball quickly. I wished they had stayed with 11 because with 10 men they really did sit behind the ball.

"It was a good night because too often we have come unstuck on nights like this. This is why you need a squad of players. I hope I can pick the right team because two or three of these have given me a headache.

"There is always a hysteria around Newcastle and we need to respond with a good result. We are certainly stronger than we were 10 months ago. My job is to keep moving the club forward."
