#PremierLeagueStories – #JacobMurphy reveals that his goal against Wolves was down to research about #RuiPatricio #NUFC

Jacob Murphy has claimed his late equaliser against Wolverhampton Wanderers was all down to his research on Rui Patricio.
Murphy netted an 89th minute free-kick at Molineux to earn Newcastle United a point after Raul Jimenez had opened the scoring in spectacular fashion.
Wolves weren’t particularly pleased with the award of the free-kick but Nuno Espirito Santo was furious with the way his players set up the defensive wall.
“If it goes over the wall then we have to deal with that, but it cannot go that side of the goal,” said Nuno. “We made a mistake with the set-up of the wall and we conceded.”

Replays showed Patricio and Leander Dendoncker, who the ball crept past on the left side of the wall, were still in discussions over its positioning moments before Murphy struck.
But Murphy paid little attention to Wolves’ wall in his post-match interview and suggested that his particular choice of free-kick exposed a weak point of Patricio.
The winger said: “I saw the way their wall was set up and the way their goalie was positioned and last night I did bit of research on their goalie and I knew anything low and hard in the corners would have half a chance. With that gap I just though ‘I’ll hit that’ and luckily it went in.”
Wolves are currently eighth in the Premier League with 10 points from their opening six games.
