Newcastle player in Premier League team of the week after 5-0 defeat
On the respected Secret Footballer website, ‘The Secret Journalist’ has picked his latest Premier League team of the week.
Amazingly, Newcastle United have the same representation as Manchester City with one player each.
In the blue corner is Edin Dzeko, he was a handful all game and scored a marvellous goal to make it 3-0.
However, in the United corner is Tim Krul, with the Secret Journalist giving this explanation for his choice:
“Not often a keeper gets the vote when his team has lost 5-0 but Krul saved Newcastle from an even bigger hiding at Manchester City. To be fair, few sides would have lived with rampant City on Saturday.”
The full team Premier League team of the week is below but worth having a look at what our Newcastle fans’ interactive player ratings were when it came to judging Tim Krul and his team-mates:
