DeAndre Yedlin has hailed the efforts of Newcastle’s strikers despite the fact they have scored only one goal between them so far this season.

Indeed, seven of the club’s last nine goals have come from defenders with Yedlin and Ciaran Clark, who is joint-top scorer with midfielder Jonjo Shelvey on two, firing the Magpies to a 2-1 Premier League victory over Bournemouth.

But what a lot of people don’t realise is the defensive work that strikers do for us.

Joelinton’s winner at Tottenham at August 25 remains the £40million summer signing’s sole strike since his arrival from Hoffenheim, while Frenchman Allan Saint-Maximin is also yet to open his account.

However, the 26-year-old United States international said: “A lot of people look at the attackers and think, ‘What are you doing?’.

“I didn’t know if it was on target, but I might as well make it on target.

“It goes a bit unnoticed, but it’s a massive help for us.” It was Yedlin’s ability to get forward from right wing-back which dragged Newcastle back into Saturday’s game as he cancelled out Harry Wilson’s opener for the visitors with a spectacular diving header – the goal surviving scrutiny from the video assistant referee.
