The Portuguese netted a diving header as Rafael Benitez’s men continued their unbeaten start to the season
Cristiano Ronaldo went joint-top of La Liga’s scoring charts following his goal during Real Madrid’s 3-1 win over Las Palmas on Saturday.
Los Blancos opened up a three-point lead at the top of the table with a result that never looked in doubt once Isco opened the scoring with a wonderful left-footed finish in the fourth minute.
