Newcastle’s guaranteed run to the title may have been stopped by a resurgent Brighton and Hove Albion, but the Magpies have very little to be disappointed about this season. Even a second place finish will see them automatically make it back to the Premier League next season, which was always the aim.
The fact that they have been able to make a comeback so quickly is down largely to the fact that they assembled a pretty decent squad, whilst also retaining the services of Rafael Benitez. Aside from that, they also have some pretty good young players who can make a splash for them soon enough.
One such player is Ivan Toney, a young English winger currently on loan to third division side Scunthorpe United. Their 0-0 draw against Millwall in the first leg of the League One play-off semi-final might have been dull. However, what wasn’t dull was Toney’s sumptuous nutmeg that he pulled off almost effortlessly during the game.
