Newcastle fans praise Jacob Murphy after 1-1 Liverpool draw

Newcastle United secured a dramatic 1-1 draw against Liverpool on Saturday afternoon – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter were majorly impressed with the performance of their star Jacob Murphy.

The Magpies left Anfield with a point from the Premier League fixture, as Joe Willock netted in stoppage time to steal a point.

Mohamed Salah’s stunning opener in the third minute gave the lead to Liverpool, who had a series of chances to add a second throughout the game.

Newcastle continued to fight and there was a real controversial moment when Callum Wilson’s goal in the closing stages was ruled out by VAR after the ball struck his hand.

However, there was still time afterwards for on-loan Arsenal man Joe Willock to score off the bench for the second game in a row.

Murphy, 26, received widespread praise on social media after his individual effort against Liverpool.

The English speedster is an attacking winger by trade, but he’s done a job in recent games as a right-back.

He was superb in the right wing-back position at Anfield with his defensive work against Sadio Mane and Andy Robertson, as well as providing a threat when he went forward.

Here are some Newcastle fans discussing Murphy:
