Newcastle Star In Latest Team Of The Week

Newcastle Star In Latest Team Of The Week

Newcastle United are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks following the clash with Southampton.

Actually Garth is now down as a 'Football Analyst' these days, a posh term for a pundit then!

The performance by Kenedy in the three nil victory over Southampton at the weekend at St James' Park was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other, in the opinion of the former Spurs striker anyway, most impressive performers in the topflight over the latest weekend.

I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Crooks, we'll also not argue with it, selected Kenedy as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.


'I can't make up my mind if Newcastle were that good or Southampton were that bad. One thing is for sure is that Kenedy made the Saints pay for their lack of team cohesion. It's been a long time since I have seen players so concerned with themselves and couldn't care about the team. Southampton have big problems.'

It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Kenedy for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the win.

Full Team:

Petr Cech (Arsenal), Ashley Young (Manchester United), Chris Smalling (Manchester United), Matthew Lowton (Burnley), Kenedy (Newcastle United), Willian (Chelsea), Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Arsenal), Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Jamie Vardy (Leicester City), Ashley Barnes (Burnley).
