Either poor sportsmanship, or clever psychological warfare, depending on your school of thought, the Newcastle centre-half does his best to put off Begovic in goals, even mimicking his actions.

Jonathan Walters tries to put an end to Taylor’s antics, but soon gives up, while the Geordies quickly took to song to show their appreciation.

In all honesty, there was little that the Stoke net-minder could do as the shot was inch perfect from the Frenchman, but it couldn’t have helped matters.
