Newcastle fans pleased with Murphy performance

Newcastle United ended their 2017-18 Premier League campaign with a 3-0 win over Chelsea at St James’ Park on Sunday afternoon.

A Dwight Gayle header and brace from Ayoze Perez secured all the points for the Magpies, who ended the Premier League season in 10th position.

Jacob Murphy has only scored one goal and registered just one assist for Newcastle this season following a move from Norwich City in last summer’s transfer window.

The 23-year-old showed plenty of positive signs against Chelsea at the weekend, however, with his pace in a wide position causing the Blues all sorts of problems.

There is no question that Murphy has room for improvement next season, but it seems that the Newcastle fans have liked what they have seen from the attacker despite his struggles in terms of goals and assists during the 2017-18 campaign.

A selection of the Twitter reaction from the club’s supporters, who also absolutely loved Jonjo Shelvey’s performance, can be seen below:
