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 with a 4-0 win over Birmingham and Dwight Gayle grabbing the matchball.

Plenty of other star performers, with maybe Mohamed Diame just about deserving the man of the match title ahead of the hat-trick hero.

However, it is Dwight Gayle named in the EFL team of the week (full 11 listed below), with their official website stating:

Dwight Gayle (Newcastle United)

“A second treble of the season for Gayle, who helped Newcastle bounce back from successive Sky Bet Championship defeats.

“Header, right foot, left foot: it was the perfect afternoon for the division’s top goalscorer.”
