Before the game, many felt that this could prove to be a big test for Newcastle United, they had lost three in a row and Birmingham had a very good record against the better sides in the division.
This, though, was not the case. A hat-trick from Dwight Gayle and another goal for Yoan Gouffran sealed a much needed win for Newcastle.
However, despite Dwight Gayle getting three goals, it was not a one man show.
Jonjo Shelvey and Mo Diame were brilliant throughout, both creating opportunities and both playing as if they had a point to prove.
Diame, in particular, was incredible. He played with power and immense skill, twisting and turning the opposition inside out.
Vurnon Anita also showed just how good he can be, playing very well throughout, sniffing out any signs of danger throughout the game.
If truth be told, there was not a bad player in the Newcastle side yesterday and in the week that Rafa Benitez said the club would be talking about new deals, I would imagine Gouffran and Anita have cemented their places at the front of the queue.
