Newcastle United loanee Jacob Murphy wasted no time impressing his new club’s fans. He scored inside 120 seconds for Sheffield Wednesday on his debut for the Championship club.
Murphy was loaned to Sheffield Wednesday on deadline day. Steve Bruce decided to lend the winger to his former club as he had no plans to use him in the first-team this season.
Last weekend, Kadeem Harris impressed fans on his debut with a goal. And Murphy was the new winger to catch the eye, scoring in the second minute of the game.
Yorkshire neighbours Barnsley took the trip to Hillsborough but they were behind early. The ball deflected into the path of Murphy, who tucked the ball in from inside the penalty area.
Murphy will be hoping to impress for the Owls this season after a frustrating spell at Newcastle. The 24-year-old has failed to step up to Premier League football and he spent time on loan at West Brom last season.
Here are some tweets from Sheffield Wednesday fans reacting to Murphy’s debut goal and overall performance against Barnsley.
Cracking game for Murphy him and Harris will put chills in any opponent #swfc

Having Murphy and Harris on opposite wings is filthy. Never thought a couple of men could give me the excitement those two do. @EFL gonna have to step in and dock us points if we carry on like this otherwise its just gonna get stupid

Starting to think all those Newcastle fans slating him on deadline day were wrong

Assured win for #SWFC
Fantastic debut for Jacob Murphy. Börner looked solid at the back and Odubajo had a good game at RB. New signings are looking great!
There's goals in this side with the added pace - Looking forward to the games to come!
Top of the league!
