On-loan Newcastle man highlights star quality in West Bromwich Albion’s win over QPR

Murphy joined the Baggies on transfer deadline day in a loan deal until the end of the season.

West Bromwich Albion threw themselves into contention for automatic promotion with a 3-2 win over QPR.

Goals from Jefferson Montero, Jacob Murphy and Jake Livermore secured a big win for Darren Moore’s side.

It was perhaps the performance of on-loan Newcastle performer Jacob Murphy which caught the eye the most.

The youngster had drawn criticism for his performance against Nottingham Forest last Tuesday.

As the saying goes though, a week is a long time in football.

The 23-year-old now has two goals from his five games for the Baggies and his performances are improving.

West Brom looked like scoring every time they went forward against QPR last night and a lot of that was down to Murphy.

 

It is fair to say that he is still a little rusty.

Having not played much football prior to his move there is still an occasional lapse in concentration in the locker, but that will improve.

His delivery into the box was patchy at best, but again, that will get better the more games he plays.

According to Who Scored, Murphy was the Man of the Match during last night’s game. The speed merchant had five shots on goal, won seven corners and dispossessed his full-back on two occasions.

With each game he has played for the Albin, Murphy has improved.

Parent club Newcastle United will be watching very carefully.
