A quicksilver attacking display from Steve Bruce's reenergised Newcastle side put paid to Championship leaders West Bromwich Albion inside an hour before two late consolation goals gave the score-line a false 2-3 margin as the away team in bright orange played like they were on fire for an hour.

Two goals from Paraguayan forward Miguel Almiron, both taken expertly on his favoured left foot, and a tap in from Valentino Lazaro gave The Magpies an unassailable lead and passage to the FA Cup Quarter-Finals.

Its the first time Newcastle have reached the last 8=eight of English's football's oldest domestic competition since 2006 when they were eventually knocked out by Chelsea, who they join in the 6th Round.

Baggies boss Slaven Bilic was keen in his pre-match interview to not play down the danger posed by a Newcastle side having a "good season" and Allan Saint-Maximin served a early warning of Newcastle's attacking potency with a rasping drive from fully 30 yards that rattled the post with keeper Bond beaten.

The French wizard of the dribble then turned provider as he picked the ball up in his own half and carried it twenty yards before slipping Almiron through on goal who finished with aplomb.

With Joelinton looking every inch a £40M striker running the channels and holding the ball up for the electric attacking trio of Almiron, Saint-Maximin and Lazaro behind him, it was fitting he set up Almiron for his second goal with a clever back heel to the penalty spot and the Paraguayan lashed it home before doing a Dragonball Z celebration in honour of his injured former team-mate Josef Martinez in Atalanta:

The rapacious Newcastle attacking trio combined again to add a third goal right after the interval as Almiron switched play from right to left splitting the West Brom lines to find Saint-Maximin inside the box and his cross found Austrian Lazaro who bundled it home to effectively end the tie.

Bruce sensibly took off Almiron in the game's final quarter to rest him for Saturday's game at Southampton as JonJo Shelvey came on and Dwight Gayle got a run-out at the club he nearly fired to promotion last year.

Sensing Newcastle had settled for a three-goal advantage, West Brom attacked with renewed vigour and subs.

Danny Rose brilliantly headed off the line before Phillips scored one on 77 minutes after pinball in the area setting up an interesting finale but despite Zohore adding a 2nd in the 92nd minute, it was never in doubt.

Steve Bruce praised his side's attacking verve and lamented Newcastle's "DNA" that seemed to dictate the opposition had a glimmer of hope even after a 3-0 advantage:

"It wouldn't be Newcastle without drama. In the end unfortunately we made hard work of it but for a large period of time I was delighted with the way we played
The front four have been criticised but it was nice to see them play with a bit of freedom. Maybe the change in system suits them. Certainly in the last couple of games we've looked more of a threat which is important..
"Almirón looked a top, top player tonight. I thought Tino [Lazaro] gave us nice balance on the right hand side. His movement and touch was good. For an hour I was delighted with us against a very decent side. It's a shame we finished the way we did but we're in the last 8."

His Newcastle side now await the Quarter-Final draw on Wednesday night and hope former Mag Chris Waddle can select a home tie at St. James' Park with The Magpies just 90 minutes from Wembley.
