NEWCASTLE, England (AP) - Newcastle scored its first, second and third English Premier League goals since returning to the top tier in a 3-0 win against last-placed West Ham on Saturday.

Newly promoted Newcastle lost its opening matches to Tottenham and Huddersfield without scoring.

Joselu marked his first start for Newcastle with a goal as manager Rafael Benitez celebrated a first win of the season.

The Spanish striker converted Christian Atsu’s 36th-minute cross to lift the mood at St. James’ Park. Defender Ciaran Clark and substitute Aleksandar Mitrovic added second-half strikes.

West Ham has conceded 10 goals and lost three league games, all away from home due to its London stadium hosting the world athletics championships.
