What Newcastle United defender Dan Burn had said about the performance of his teammates this season

Newcastle United defender Dan Burn says winger Anthony Gordon has been ‘on fire’ this season.

Burn appeared on the Monday Night Club following a stunning victory over Sheffield United on Sunday.

Eddie Howe would have expected his team to respond to a goalless draw against AC Milan in the Champions League.

He certainly got it when his team defeated Sheffield United by eight goals in a record-breaking victory.

No Premier League side has ever had eight different scorers in a single game, like Newcastle did.

The score does not accurately reflect how close the game was in the early going.

It could have been a completely different game if Luke Thomas had converted his early chance.

However, Anthony Gordon transformed the game when he came on for Harvey Barnes, who had been injured. Dan Burn has stated that, while Gordon may be unhappy with how his tenure at Newcastle began, he has been outstanding this season.

The 22-year-old is swiftly emerging as one of Eddie Howe’s most successful players.

Burn was particularly impressed by Gordon, a Newcastle teammate.
“I feel like it takes a while to be able to play in this team, just the amount of information you’ve got to take in, pressing, on the ball, different patterns that we use,” Burn said of the young striker.

“You’ve seen it with other signings, including Anthony Gordon.”

“He came in in January and probably didn’t get off to as fast a start as he would have liked.”

“But if you look now he’s been on fire at the start of the season where I think he’s getting used to playing with the players around him, I thought he was brilliant in midweek in Milan and brilliant yesterday as well.”

Anthony Gordon continues to defy expectations following a tough start to life on Tyneside, and he was outstanding on Sunday.

Gordon appears to be a completely different player at Newcastle this season, according to Shay Given, who agreed with Burn.

Based on his performance at Goodison Park, Newcastle paid £45 million for the 22-year-old from Everton in January.

He is, however, soon trying to justify that fee.
