Bukayo Saka was seriously impressed with 23-year-old Newcastle player after Chelsea win
Newcastle United have shown they’re a real force to be reckoned with in the Premier League this season if there was still any doubt.
It’s been a phenomenal start to the season from Eddie Howe and his squad, surpassing all expectations.
The Magpies maintained their record of having the best defence in the league with another clean sheet.
Newcastle were by far the more threatening side and made that pressure pay in the second-half.
Willock has now scored in back-to-back games after scoring against Southampton last weekend.
Arsenal star Bukayo Saka was very impressed with Willock’s performance yesterday, as were many of his Newcastle teammates.
Willock can now look forward to a well-earned rest as the World Cup takes place and the Premier League pauses for the next month.
Saka impressed with Willock’s performance
He posted with the caption, “Perfect night @nufc, 3 pointer”.
His teammates flocked to congratulate Willock, as Alexander Isak just said, ‘Wow’, while Nick Pope called him an ‘Elite knee slider’.
Bukayo Saka was also very impressed with Willock yesterday, and clearly loved his performance.
The pair came through Arsenal’s academy together and have played more than 50 matches together.
Willock and Saka are clearly very close, and Willock has already shown his support for the Arsenal forward this season.
The 23-year-old has been fantastic for Newcastle this season.
However, Willock has quietly got on with his job very successfully, and is finally adding goals to his game.
If Willock can continue to impress for Newcastle, he might start to grab the attention of England manager Gareth Southgate.
