Newcastle's Alexander Isak runs from halfway line in filthy assist against Everton

Newcastle's Alexander Isak runs from halfway line in filthy assist against Everton

Alexander Isak produced the best assist of the season for Newcastle against Everton.

Newcastle striker Alexander Isak produced the best assist of the season in the Premier League this season against Everton.

The in-form Magpies smashed Spurs 6-1 at St James' Park on Sunday and picked up where they left off in their next outing on Thursday night.

The Magpies ran out 4-1 winners, with Callum Wilson bagging a brace and Joelinton and Jacob Murphy also getting on the scoresheet.

Isak, who started the game as a substitute, did not add to his goals tally but he produced the filthiest moment of the game - and quite possibly the season on the whole.

Picking up the ball on the halfway line, the Swede destroyed defenders galore and jinked in and out before making his way to the byline and squaring for Murphy to tap home in the 81st minute - moments after Dwight McNeill had pulled one back.

It was an utterly outrageous passage of play, with Isak showcasing his supreme dribbling ability and balance.

He had absolutely no right to get through all those players with so much ease but the mazy run proved just what a special talent he is.

Fans were left in absolute astonishment over the sorcery the former Borussia Dortmund and Real Sociedad striker conjured up.

One wrote: "Alexander Isak is genuinely different gravy."

Premier League record goalscorer Alan Shearer said: "OMG what a goal that is. The run from Isak was OUTRAGEOUS to set up @JacobMurphy95."

A third added: "Alexander Isak is unbelievably good on the ball. Absolutely love watching him. He’s just dribbled past the entire Everton team like he’s Messi, for example, to set up the 4th goal."

A fourth said: "Alexander Isak is making it look like he’s playing against toddlers in the Premier League."
