Alan Shearer goes over the top after excellent Swansea 0 Newcastle 1 result

5 years ago

Alan Shearer was in buoyant mood after watching Swansea 0 Newcastle 1.

A Jamaal Lascelles towering header in the 76th minute won the game, with the captain having earlier prevented what looked a certain goal with a block on the line.

Having produced many heroic performances as Newcastle captain himself, Alan Shearer was up for celebrating afterwards.

The NUFC legend declaring after the game via his Twitter account:

“We’re gonna win the league, we’re gonna win the league and now your gonna believe us!

“Toon Toon black and white army!”

Not quite top of the league just yet, Newcastle fans will be enjoying seeing their team in the top half of the Premier League, sitting in 10th place with six points from the first 12.

A great effort all round.
