Rafael Benitez led Newcastle back into the Premier League as champions as they snatched the Championship title on a dramatic final day.

Goals from Ayoze Perez, Chancel Mbemba and substitute Dwight Gayle secured a deserved 3-0 victory over Barnsley in front of owner Mike Ashley and a crowd of 52,276 at St James’ Park.





In a consequential match, Jack Grealish’s last-gasp strike for Aston Villa denied Brighton victory to allow the Magpies to leap-frog them into top spot.
