West Ham was a great game. Newcastle would be disappointed because they squandered 3 points. Here are 3 things Geordies should learn.

When Mohammed Kudus scored that late equalizer against the Magpies, it was a hammer blow for Newcastle’s hopes of winning that game after Alexander Isak scored a brace. Kieran Trippier was also fantastic in that game and clearly the man of the match. Newcastle came from behind to almost winning that game and that showed the character of the team. The Magpies were riding high after winning against the teams like Manchester City and PSG. So, here are the 3 things that Geordies should learn from the West Ham 2-2 Newcastle United game.

Kieran Trippier is one of the best right-backs in the world

Look, when it comes to right-backs around the world, people will say names like Walker, Hakimi, and many others. Very few would mention the name of Kieran Trippier. But, after his performance against PSG where he shut down Mbappe and West Ham where he was brilliant again, he should come into the conversation while choosing the best right-backs in the world.

Alexander Isak is a world-class striker worth the money

Newcastle United paid £63m to sign Alexander Isak from Real Sociedad. Initially, many pundits questioned the transfer fee of the Swedish international at that time. However, Isak is worthy of every penny that Newcastle paid to get him.

Newcastle United players showing grit to salvage a point

Playing at the London Stadium against West Ham is not an easy job. Newcastle were down by a goal. But a brace from Isak gave Magpies the lead. After that, Kudus scored a late equalizer for the Hammers, which was heart-breaking for the Geordies. So, getting a point at the London Stadium is a job well done for Eddie Howe and his men as they showed grit to salvage an important away point.
