Demba Ba’s hat-trick ensured Newcastle continued their unbeaten run as they moved up to third in the Premier League following victory over Stoke. The Senegal striker headed in Gabriel Obertan’s cross to open the scoring on 12 minutes and followed it up with a close-range finish before half-time. Ba almost ruined his evening when his push on Peter Crouch led to Jonathan Walters’ penalty with 15 minutes left.
