Club legend Alan Shearer has named Isaac Hayden, Joe Willock and Miguel Almiron in his Premier League team of the week following our 3-2 win against Southampton.
This means that we have been represented in his side over two of the last three weeks, with Jamal Lewis and Callum Wilson featuring last time out for their part in our heroic 2-0 victory at Goodison Park.
The trio line up alongside some stellar names, with Man City quartet John Stones, Phil Foden, Ilkay Gungogan and Raheem Sterling included after Man City trounced Liverpool 4-1, alongside Man Utd star Bruno Fernandes and Tottenham’s Harry Kane.
Here is Shearer’s team in full:
All three Toon players are deserving of their place in the side as a gutsy nine-man Newcastle overcame the pressure of Southampton.
Hayden is proving to be eternally reliable wherever he plays, Almiron bagged two goals while running his socks off from start to finish, while new boy Willock bagged a debut goal and offered that box-to-box option we’ve lacked all season to earn himself a spot in Shearer’s lineup.
