Newcastle fans were delighted with Jacob Murphy’s performance in cup win

Newcastle United are safely through to the Fourth Round of the FA Cup after a comfortable win against League Two side Luton Town at St James’ Park on Saturday.

Three goals in nine first half minutes were enough to secure the 3-1 victory despite a spirited showing from the away side after the break.

Ayoze Perez was the double goal hero of the afternoon with midfielder Jonjo Shelvey also hitting the back of the net.

While they’ll steal the headlines, it was the performance of Jacob Murphy that caught the eye of home supporters, with the winger producing a dynamic attacking performance to help his side to victory.

The summer signing has struggled to start regularly for Rafa Benitez this season but has now performed well in his last two matches after providing the assist in the recent 1-0 league victory against Stoke City.

Does he now deserve an extended run in the Magpies team?
