NEWCASTLE, England — Goalkeeper Jack Butland made several second-half saves to help Stoke earn a 0-0 draw at Newcastle on Saturday in the Premier League.
Butland denied Moussa Sissoko twice, including a stunning effort with seven minutes remaining, and also made stops from Ayoze Perez and substitute Jamaal Lascelles as Newcastle again failed to make the most of its chances. Aleksandar Mitrovic also hit the post for Newcastle in the first half.
Stoke created little of note despite enjoying a fair share of the possession, with three players failing to get a touch on Charlie Adam's driven cross in the 17th minute.
Newcastle remained in the relegation zone with just one league win so far this season. Stoke is 13th.
