The EFL Team of the week has been named and once again it includes one of Newcastle United’s star players.

Newcastle turning on the style after a poor opening 45 minutes with an eventual 4-0 win over Rotherham.

DeAndre Yedlin did everything asked of him defensively and also made a massive impact at the other end, contributing two excellent assists for Murphy and Perez.
