Newcastle trio named in PL team of month for September, £12m man was league’s best player.

September was a great month for Newcastle United, as they won four of their six games and drew with AC Milan in the Champions League.

The month in the Premier League began with a crushing loss to Brighton, but after the international break, something clicked for Newcastle, and their fortunes drastically shifted.

After a spirited 1-0 victory against Brentford, the Magpies advanced to play AC Milan in the Champions League. The following Sunday, Newcastle destroyed Sheffield United 8-0 before eliminating Manchester City, the reigning European Champions, from the Carabao Cup.

Newcastle won once again in September.
Newcastle defeated Burnley 2-0 at the weekend to cap up the month.

In light of the fact that Newcastle has numerous players out injured and Eddie Howe has had to rearrange the pack, it wasn’t just the results that were amazing, but also the team performances.Newcastle United v Manchester City - Carabao Cup Third RoundHowever, three players not only remained fit enough to feature in all of those games, but they managed to work their way into the WhoScored Team of the Month with £12million man Kieran Trippier being the highest rated player in the league.

Trippier was joined in the Team of the Week by Bruno Guimaraes who has found his form again following the international break and Anthony Gordon who has been simply sensational all season.

It was Trippier’s 13 key passes and four assists that bagged him Player of the Month with three of those assists coming in one game. Bruno bagged a goal and an assist along with multiple Player of the Match accolades in September.

Newcastle was the team with the most members of the Team of the Month.
The final member of the trio is Anthony Gordon, who was chosen by WhoScored because to his game-changing performance against Sheffield United and his 12 tackles throughout the month.

No other side had three players represented in the Team of the Month which shows just how brilliant Newcastle have been since the break.

With Paris Saint-Germain to come on Wednesday followed by West Ham at the weekend, the Magpies, who seem to be losing players to injury at a rapid pace, will no doubt be glad of the next international break following the clash with the Hammers.
