Newcastle fans praise Jacob Murphy for his cup performance

Newcastle Untied produced a clinical performance to thrash League Two side Morecambe on Wednesday night – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter gave significant praise to their fringe man Jacob Murphy for his performance.

The Magpies earned a 7-0 away win at the Globe Arena and there were some real standout performers from their attackers.

Joelinton (two), Miguel Almiron, Murphy, Isaac Hayden, and Jamaal Lascelles were all on the scoresheet for the Premier League visitors, while Sam Levelle also netted an own goal in the closing stages of the match.

Steve Bruce’s side will now face Newport County in the fourth round of the competition and there is a real belief the Toon can try go deep into a domestic cup competition this season.

Despite there being numerous impressive individuals, a selection of Newcastle supporters on social media picked out Murphy as someone that really caught the eye.

The 25-year-old spent the last season impressing out on loan at Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship, but he appears to be on the fringes of Bruce’s current squad.

He is a skilful winger that hasn’t been named in the match day squad for either of the opening two Premier League games of the season, but he made a great case for himself in midweek with a composed left-footed finish against Morecambe and an all-action display full of work-rate.

Here are some Newcastle fans discussing Murphy:
