Newcastle 4-3 West Ham: What Howe said

Eddie Howe spoke to BBC Match of the Day after Newcastle's victory over West Ham: "It tells us we have some unbelievable professionals in there and we still have a spirit that we will never give up. It is a game we will never forget, it was a pleasure to be a part of it and I can't praise the players enough."

On injuries: "It's been the story of our season. Unfortunately we were getting hit left right and centre today. We were 1-0 up and then Jamaal [Lascelles] goes off. Miggy [Almiron] goes off, Anthony [Gordon] is sent off, Tino [Livramento] goes off. It is a catalogue one after another but the players we brought on made a positive impact and that's the beauty of our squad."

On Harvey Barnes: "He is an incredible player. We have missed him this season and he would have given us quality wherever he played. He is a goalscorer and they are so valuable and his two finishes today were of the highest quality. Of course, the last one was memorable and will always be remembered and what a finish it was. That's the quality he has."
