Kenedy: Newcastle midfielder's display to forget at Cardiff City Stadium

Daniel Sturridge scored as Liverpool beat West Ham 4-0 at the weekend

On an overcast Saturday in south Wales, the grey clouds seemed to follow the Brazilian about as his passing, tackling and, crucially, finishing came under scrutiny for all the wrong reasons as the 10 men of Newcastle missed a golden chance to claim an unlikely three away points.

Cardiff resumed their dominance in the first-half but Newcastle did look the most risky in front of goal with Etheridge denying Perez again in the 40th minute.

Alas, Kenedy's day took another turn for the worse as his tame effort from the spot was easily parried by keeper Neil Etheridge.

Seconds later Pérez was up the other end of the field having a chance of his own as the ball deflected off Joe Bennett, however, the ball got caught up in his feet and as the angle tightened and it was saved well by Neil Etheridge.

The Magpies suffered a second straight week with an injured fullback.

Newcastle rode their luck at times and there could be added concern for them after Kenedy appeared to kick out at Cardiff's Spanish midfielder Victor Camarasa in the first half.

Karunanidhi demise: State funeral for DMK Patriarch on Wednesday
He led DMK to victory in 1996, but AIADMK under Jayalalithaa trumped his party once again in 2001. DMK workers broke barricades and shouted slogans against the Centre and the state government.

It earned the Bluebirds a point, which they will take to John Smith's Stadium next weekend when they face Huddersfield Town.

Zohore badly misjudged a 54th-minute header when picked out by Ralls and Cardiff were still on top when their hand was strengthened.

Benitez's options at right back against Cardiff are Javier Manquillo or Jamie Sterry.

Pawson might have missed Kenedy's offence, but he got a clear view of Hayden making a studs-up challenge on Murphy and immediately sent him off.

One more interesting subplot could be the meeting of two twins across the divide; Newcastle winger Jacob Murphy signed from Norwich City last summer, a year before his brother Josh left Carrow Road for Cardiff.

The Blue Army will no doubt be excited to see the link-up play between Gray, Ben Chilwell and James Maddison, who are all good friends off the pitch.
