It’s official: This alternative footage proves Jetro Willems goal v Man City better than Liverpool effort

12 months ago

Jetro Willems has impressed Newcastle fans with his contribution so far.

The Magpies having been desperately in need for a left wing-back to compete with Matt Ritchie.

Ritchie himself having been converted to that position by Rafa Benitez from his usual right wing position.

Willems has looked very at home getting up and down that left hand side and his defensive contribution has improved, having arrived with a reputation for being a lot better going up the pitch rather that his ability at the other end.

The Dutch international has impressed so much that Newcastle fans have already called for the club to activate now, the reported £10m buyout clause included in the loan arrangement.

His cause hasn’t been harmed by getting amongst the goals, currently having scored twice as many as our attacking trio combined.

He scored a spectacular one from distance with his right foot at Liverpool.

Then on Saturday he repeated the trick against Manchester City from closer in.

At first glance I thought it was nothing special but then…

Have a look at this footage the club have released from a different angle.

That first Jetro Willems touch is sublime and his give and go with Miguel Almiron (what a return ball!) is very sweet, then a quality finish.

Just listen to the noise as well!

Go to 7.35 if you want to go direct to the Jetro Willems goal.

Here’s hoping for a few more Jetro Willems specials this season.
