Speaking after the game, Howe suggested Newcastle won against PSG because his players gave a brilliant display against the French Ligue 1 giants.
According to him, Newcastle players pressed Luis Enrique’s side and were successful a couple of times.
“We are really pleased. It was a brilliant effort from the players,” Howe told CBS Sports.
“It was a different game. It was a cat and mouse between the two, we were trying to press them and they were trying to play through us.
“We were successful a couple of times which led to big goals for us, so I am delighted with the players’ commitment.”
“I think we came here with a lot more confident mood. We wanted to be ourselves and then take the result whatever it is,” he added.
The win over PSG means Newcastle now top Group F with four points from two games.
