After Newcastle’s impressive display on Saturday at West Ham in the 2-9 win, Garth Brooks has picked Jeff Hendrick in his Premier League team of the week.
Jeff had an excellent game, especially in the second half and had an assist for Callum Wilson’s first goal for Newcastle after 56 minutes.
He then scored a beautiful goal with just three minutes to go, to ensure all 3 points for the Magpies.
He was outstanding and a free agent signing too
Here’s Brooks’ team of the week:
And this is what Garth said about the former Newcastle player on BBC Sport, who was great for us on Saturday:
“At West Ham, there were a number of impressive displays by Newcastle’s new arrivals. The pick of the bunch was Jeff Hendrick.”
“As well as being smart with the ball, Hendrick has an acute eye for goal. He set up Callum Wilson’s debut finish before hitting a lovely strike past Lukasz Fabianski to put the game way beyond the Hammers.”
“This time last season, Steve Bruce was arguably the most unpopular man in the north-east. He is now considered a very credible manager, having created a team worthy of the area.”
“Meanwhile, West Ham continue to create headlines for all the wrong reasons.”
“Did you know? Jeff Hendrick both scored and assisted against West Ham – it was the first time he has done so in the Premier League in what was his 123rd appearance in the competition.”
Results are everything in football.
Let’s hope we can beat Blackburn today at home in the 2nd round of the League (Carabao) Cup.
Howay The Lads!!
