Newcastle United fans react as Jacob Murphy shines against Wolves

Newcastle United rescued a point at Wolves as the two teams drew 1-1 at Molineux. Raul Jimenez looked to have won it for the hosts but Jacob Murphy’s late set-piece ensured a share of the spoils.

It was the Magpies flyer who caught the eye during his first Premier League start of the campaign – with supporters raving about the player on Twitter after the game.

The 25-year-old came on a substitute earlier this season against Spurs and has played three times in the Carabao Cup.

He impressed Steve Bruce during pre-season after spending last season out on loan with Sheffield Wednesday for the 2019/20 campaign.

His goal was a peach which caught out Wolves stopper Rui Patricio, with his swerving effort beating him at his near post.

At 25, Murphy will hope he can continue proving his worth to the manager and start becoming a regular in the team at St. James’ Park.

The winger signed for the Magpies in 2017 costing £12 million from Norwich City where he came through the youth ranks.

Murphy earns £25,000-a-week at Newcastle and his Man of the Match performance yesterday will have certainly caught the eye of his boss.

Here is a selection of Tweets from Newcastle supporters regarding Murphy’s display yesterday.
