According to our readers, Jonjo Shelvey was Newcastle’s best player at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Jonjo got a good 32% of the vote, and if there was a vote for Newcastle’s best player, Jonjo would probably come out on top – although young Mikel Merino is also very highly thought of by the fans.
DeAndre Yedlin takes second place with 25% of the vote after his great assist for Dwight Gayle’s goal after just 14 minutes.
Yedlin like the rest of our back four were struggling to contain the Manchester United forwards in the final 60 minutes of the game, and Rafa will no doubt be working with the defense this week in training.
But probably the man who got the most out of the game was young Jacob Murphy who looked good when he had the ball in what was only his third start this season – he did himself a lot of good at Old Trafford.
Jacob Murphy – had a good game at Old Trafford
Jacob was our most expensive signing in the summer but as Rafa has said a number of times – he is doing well in training and improving.
The manager has vast experience on how to bring young players through to become stars of the future.
We hope that’s exactly what happens with Jacob.
