A lot of Newcastle United fans loved Jonjo Shelvey’s intelligence in the Toon’s 2-0 win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
A long ball was flicked on by Andy Carroll into the path of Jonjo Shelvey. (0:57) However, the flag was raised by the linesman, so the Blades defenders stood still and allowed Shelvey to go through and score. (1:05)
Is Jonjo Shelvey Newcastle's most important player at the moment?
Yes, he has hit a new level this season
No, he is playing well but others are more important
VAR found that Carroll was onside, and the goal stood. (1:42) The 27-year-old decided to play on, and he scored the killer goal, which delighted many Newcastle fans.
Play to the whistle… ????

What do we think?
Sheffield United should have played to the whistle, but they saw the flag and just gave up tracking Shelvey. (1:02)
Enda Stevens even turned his back! VAR worked on this occasion, and it rightly awarded the Toon their second goal.
This was the former Swansea man’s fourth goal of the season, and he seems to be enjoying his football again – which can only be a good thing for Newcastle.
