‘That Is Truly Damning’ ‘Hopefully Pellegrini Listens But I Doubt it’ Fans React As Shelvey Reveals How Newcastle Exposed West Ham

Newcastle attacking midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has revealed the secret behind the Magpies’ 3-2 win against West Ham at the weekend.

Steve Bruce’s side managed to get in behind the Hammers’ defence repeatedly in the first half, and when asked about the tactics they employed, Shelvey replied it was simply about using runs from deep to exploit the high defensive line:

“The gaffer spoke about it before. They (West Ham) always struggle with runners from deep and we worked on it in training and it paid off.”



A lot of fans on Twitter feel manager Manuel Pellegrini’s tactics are not up to scratch following Shelvey’s remarks:

Whether Pellegrini will change his style of play, it is doubtful, but it must be said that not every team will have the pace of players like Allan Saint-Maximin on the counter-attack.

Whatever the circumstances, though, it was an extremely poor performance by the home side and the team now face the challenge of travelling to Turf Moor for a tough test against Burnley in their last game before the international break.
