'Different class' - Newcastle fans rave about 25-year-old star despite defeat v Burnley

By George Brooks

Newcastle fans were impressed with midfielder Jonjo Shelvey’s performance, despite the Premier League defeat to Burnley last night.

Rafa Benitez’s side went down 1-0 at Turf Moor, thanks to Jeff Hendrick’s second-half strike.

Magpies fans took to Twitter to express their views on the 25-year-old’s performance, with his ability to control the midfield and his range of passing catching the eye.

Shelvey was the standout player on a frustrating night for Newcastle, which saw them drop to ninth place in the Premier League table.

The Englishman has been an important player for Benitez’s side this season, despite being sent off on the opening day against Tottenham.

Benitez signed Shelvey as a youngster during his time as Liverpool manager, but the midfielder’s time at Anfield was inconsistent.

Shelvey has six England caps and some fans think that he should be recalled to Gareth Southgate’s squad, as they prepare for next year’s World Cup in Russia.
