Jonjo Shelvey tends to divide football fans, but at the moment the midfielder is a favourite among the Newcastle United following.
The former Liverpool player has the ability to influence a game, but he is also prone to making a mistake.
The 26-year-old’s discipline has often been questioned, but on Sunday on the final day of the Premier League season, he ran riot against Chelsea.
The midfielder nabbed an assist in a surprise 3-0 victory over Antonio Conte’s side at St James’ Park.
It was an enjoyable end to what was, at times, a frustrating campaign for the Magpies.
Dwight Gayle managed to get on the scoresheet, while Ayoze Perez scored twice to help the North-East club secure 10th place in the Premier League table.
In the early stages of the season, Newcastle were in danger of suffering relegation to the Championship, but manager Rafael Benitez helped perform a turnaround.
Now, attention has been switched to the World Cup, and Newcastle fans think that Shelvey deserves a spot in the England squad.
There is absolutely no way that Jonjo Shelvey doesn’t utterly merit a place in the England squad for Russia. Also, there is absolutely no way that Jamaal Lascelles is anything other than one of England’s top 2 centre backs. Fact. #NUFC #Proud

Just a thought, can anyone tell@he why Barkley is going to the World Cup and Jonjo Shelvey is not!!!! I watched them both today and I’m not saying Barkley isn’t a bad player but he’s not in the same planet as Shelvey! #worldcup #NUFC #class

On another note… Jonjo Shelvey sitting at home this World Cup is a travesty. Forget specualation, forget form, forget everything else, it shouldn’t even be a question. It’s nonsense him not being in Russia… #nufc

It'd be a travesty if #Shelvey doesn't go to the world cup! I may be biased but wtf does Henderson provide for the team?? Can u imagine Shelvey's passing with Vardy's movement & finishing?! #nufc #WC2018
