DeAndre Yedlin scored a great goal on Saturday, a blitzing 60/7o yard run saw him leave Gabriel Jesus trailing, the Newcastle defender finishing off Rondon’s excellent assist.

Despite the result being a big disappointment, the 25 year old admits it was a relief to get his first ever Premier League goal, especially against Man City.

After an indifferent start to the season, the USMNT international was bang on back to his best form and as well as the goal, defended well, although he was to an extent at fault a little for Sterlng’s goal after Lascelles gifted possession on the edge of the box.

One of the younger players in the Newcastle team, DeAndre Yedlin is actually the most experienced for his country, with 52 caps.

He has high profile games against Brazil and Mexico (all Newcastle players’ international games listed below for this next week) to look forward to in the next week as well as playing England later in the year.

However, the NUFC player still can’t believe his luck that he is playing at all.

Going down late in the Spurs match, the instant reaction of both he and the NUFC club doctor, was that it was a serious knee injury.

The next morning though, he was pleasantly surprised to see no swelling and then an MRI scan showed ‘literally nothing.’

No much luck for Newcastle United so far this season but with Yedlin proving invaluable last season, from an attacking perspective as well, lets hope this helps towards better times ahead this season.

DeAndre Yedlin talking to Goal:

“As soon as it (the injury in the Tottenham match) happened, I thought it’s going to be bad.

“The doc actually came in after and said ‘I’m just going to be quite blunt with you, just based on the video it looked pretty bad’. I hadn’t seen the video then.

“I was just hoping that it wasn’t swollen in the morning.

“Luckily, when I woke up it really wasn’t swollen at all.

“I went to get an MRI and got the results back and it showed that there was literally nothing. I’m not really sure what happened, but I’m thankful for whatever helped save it, and hopefully nothing like that happens again, knock on wood.

“It’s kind of a relief (to score his first Premier League goal (at Man City).

“I was going a lot of games without a goal so it was kind of a relief.

“First things first though, the result is the most important thing so I wish we could have got a better result.

“Obviously we (USMNT) want to put the past behind us

“Kind of a clean slate, fresh start (after dismal 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign), so I’m excited for that.

“When you’re the younger guy, you’re kind of only looking after yourself. Obviously you have to be a bit selfish in terms of what you’re doing.

“But when you’re the older guy you have to look out for the younger guys as well. If they’re making mistakes, they need help, then you help them.

“I think it’s good that these kind of games can kind of get out early in their careers.

“Because, obviously when you get to the World Cup it’s a different stage, but after that really any team you play isn’t, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s this team or this team’.

“We’re playing obviously some very big teams this year and I think it will be a great test for us.”

    If only we could take Paul Dummets defensive ability and put it on Yedlin and put Yedlins attacking ability and put it on Dummett.
    We’d have two cracking full backs . .

    I like the lad ok he has his problems defensively but Rafa will work on that, it was a great goal that he scored.

    Turn him into a striker as was done with Supermac. He has all the qualities.
