Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot got to the corner delivery first, but didn’t manage to punch the ball far enough away as the final seconds of stoppage time ticked away. A perfectly-positioned Cleverley managed to pop the ball over the masses of defenders and into the net, handing a painful loss to the relegation zone-dwelling Magpies.
