Newcastle United and Burnley played out a pulsating FA Cup tie at St James’ Park on Saturday, with the visitors coming back from 3-1 down to win 4-3 in extra time.
Newcastle United 0-0 Burnley (3-4 pens)
Wayne Hennessey has not played a club match in almost a year and was Wales’ back-up for Euro 2023.
Burnley defeated Newcastle United 4-3 on penalties to go to the Carabao Cup third round. Wayne Hennessey had a memorable debut.
In regular time, the Welshman produced outstanding stops from Jeff Hendrick, Dwight Gayle, and Javier Manquillo as the Clarets failed to make a meaningful attempt in a goalless 90 minutes.
In the shootout, Hennessey stopped Allan Saint-first Maximin’s penalty.
He also made a stop against Miguel Almiron, allowing Charlie Taylor to score the game-winning goal.
After seven years at Crystal Palace, Hennessey, 34, joined Turf Moor on a free transfer in the summer and has not played a club match since September of last year.
He also played in this level of the Carabao Cup on that day, saving a penalty and missing one in an 11-10 shootout defeat to Bournemouth after a 0-0 draw.
Both teams made significant changes after losing their first two Premier League games. Only goalkeeper Freddie Woodman and captain Jamaal Lascelles were retained from the Newcastle side that lost at Aston Villa on Saturday, while Burnley manager Sean Dyche made six changes, including a second debut for newly signed winger Aaron Lennon.
In a first half with no attempts on goal, Newcastle’s Jeff Hendrick began brightly and had the first effort of significance when his shot from 25 yards brushed the post after 10 minutes. He then had a shot blocked 20 minutes later.
But the game improved dramatically after the interval, and Burnley would have been soundly thrashed if it hadn’t been for Hennessey’s heroics.
Hendrick reacted fastest to Joelinton’s scuffed effort from six yards away, and he made a great save from him four minutes after the break.
Six minutes later, Gayle’s strike partner hit the crossbar from a tight angle before the two linked up again, with Gayle seeing Hennessey make a fine stop from a close-range attempt.
As Burnley failed to bother Woodman, Joelinton was again the supplier for Manquillo’s opportunity, which Hennessey palmed wide.
As both sides sought in vain to find a winner, the Clarets introduced Ashley Barnes, while the hosts countered with Saint-Maximin, Joe Willock, and Almiron.
Hennessey and his opposite number Woodman were defeated by the following six kicks after saving Saint-first Maximin’s attempt of the shootout.
To maintain the shootout at 3-3, Woodman saved Josh Brownhill’s penalty, but Hennessey went down to his right to stop Almiron’s poor attempt with the next kick, and Taylor secured Burnley’s advancement and a home game with League Two side Rochdale in round three.
Sean Dyche, the Burnley manager, told Radio Lancashire:
“It was a close game, and Wayne made two huge stops in the second half.”
“We’re putting the team back together, so we’re hoping for a fast recovery,” he said. “When you consider we played Erik Pieters in three positions in one game, it’s not the ideal situation.”
“But the fighting characteristics, the attitude were excellent; we kept foraging, trying to break them down while defending correctly, and we got away with a sneaky one on penalties, but we’ll take it.”
Steve Bruce, Newcastle United’s manager, told Radio 5 Live:
“We’re all aware that penalties are a crapshoot that may go any way.
“What impressed me the most was the team’s performance. Throughout, I felt we performed well.
“If you want to be critical, we’ve missed huge, big opportunities, and at this level, you have to take them against a Premier League side.”
“However, I felt the team’s defensive performance was outstanding overall.” Burnley didn’t have a shot, and my goalie didn’t have to make a save.
“However, we’re having no success at the moment. We need to keep pounding away, and I’m certain things will improve.”
