Newcastle striker Alexander Isak produced the one of the best assists of the season in the Premier League against Everton.
Newcastle were in blazing form, coming in to this game after a 6-1 thumping of Tottenham on Sunday. Their form did not show even a slight bit of dip, as they smashed Everton 4-1 with Callum Wilson, Joelinton and Murphy all on the goal charts.
However, despite not starting the game, it was Alexander Isak who stole the show from the rest of the team.
The Swedish striker took possession of the ball on the halfway line and quickly outmuscled every defender in sight. He then advanced to the byline and squared the ball for Murphy to score in the 81st minute.
