Video posted by Norwich City highlights embarrassing concern for Newcastle United

Norwich City have showed off the industry and desire of on-fire striker Teemu Pukki from Saturday’s 3-1 win over Newcastle United with a video posted on their Twitter account – but it also highlights an embarrassing concern for Newcastle fans.

Pukki starred for Norwich as scored a sensational hat-trick for the Canaries in a somewhat easy win over Steve Bruce’s side, who lacked ideas, creativity and most of all, work rate at Carrow Road.

Newcastle made the scoreline slightly better with an injury-time strike from Jonjo Shelvey, but that does not hide the fact that Newcastle were poor. Criticism has been directed at the players from fans for a lack of effort.

Norwich have proved just that with a video posted on their Twitter account on Wednesday from the match. It sees Norwich lose the ball deep inside Newcastle’s half, but Pukki tracks back to win it back – with only Miguel Almiron supporting Joelinton.

Newcastle have struggled so far this season, following the appointment of Steve Bruce after Rafa Benitez’s exit. The Toon have suffered defeats to Arsenal – where they played well – before this poor defeat to newly-promoted Norwich.

Toon fans have reacted to the video which shows Joelinton and Almiron left to work by themselves, and the gap between the Newcastle midfield and attack worryingly large. Fans are not impressed.
