It’s no secret that some have criticised Newcastle’s ability going forward, but after their goal haul in East London, there could be hope on the horizon.
Should Newcastle sign Jetro Willems permanently?
Two quickfire headed efforts from Ciaran Clark and Federico Fernandez gave the Magpies a 2-0 lead inside half an hour, with Allan Saint-Maximin finding himself through on goal twice but failing to capitalise for the third.
Just six minutes into the second period, Jonjo Shelvey fired a stunning free-kick to give Bruce’s men a three goal advantage – with late strikes from West Ham’s Fabian Balbuena and Robert Snodgrass providing a little scare towards the end.
The result has proven massive, with Andy Carroll going on to praise the previously out-of-form Joelinton for his contribution on a brilliant afternoon going forward.
Here’s how the fans reacted to him hailing the Brazilian.
Hope you earn a new contract this season!
