Alan Shearer is a Newcastle United legend and favourite among the club’s fans, but he may have got slightly ahead of himself after watching the team beat Swansea City on Sunday.
The North-East outfit headed to the Liberty Stadium as slight underdogs, mainly due to some of the players that they were facing.
Bayern Munich star Renato Sanches, who joined the Swans on loan on deadline day, made his debut, but he failed to impress.
Wilfried Bony entered the field of play in the 69th minute, but he was unable to make a difference as Newcastle ended up winning 1-0.
Jamaal Lascelles was the scorer on the day, and it came as a surprise to many given that Swansea were tipped to come away with all three points.
Shearer was clearly buoyed by the result as he took to Twitter claiming that the Magpies are going to win the league, although it’s safe to say his comment was tongue in cheek.
We're gonna win the league, we're gonna win the league and now your gonna believe us! 🙋🏼♂️🙋🏼♂️😂😂 Toon Toon black and white army! #SWANEW

Rafael Benitez, who was not present at the game as he is recovering from a hernia operation, has guided the team to two victories and two defeats so far.
