Speaking to the Premier League, Alan Shearer has been analysing Anthony Gordon’s performance against Leeds as he named the youngster in his Team of the Week.
The 20-year-old was electric against Leeds. He carved the Whites’ defence apart on a number of occasions and he looked a constant threat.
Gordon even managed to get his name on the scoresheet, but even the Premier League’s ultimate goalscorer had to admit that Gordon was very lucky to be credited with the strike on Saturday as he was the beneficiary of a slight deflection.
The Newcastle legend was full of praise for Gordon.
“He may have been lucky with his goal but it was fully deserved for the Academy graduate, who is becoming a key part of Frank Lampard’s team,” Shearer said.
Gordon was very lucky to be credited with the goal at the weekend, but as Shearer says, his performance was very much worthy of a goal.
The youngster was arguably the best player on the pitch, and he will certainly have impressed his new manager with his dazzling performance against Leeds.
Luckily for Gordon, he was credited with a goal, and while he probably didn’t have much right to claim Richarlison’s strike, we’re sure that he’s more than happy to pick up his goal bonus.
