Jacob Murphy delighted with the win over Stoke

“It was the perfect way to start the year. I’m over the moon to start 2018 with my first Premier League assist for Newcastle - I couldn’t think of a better way to do it. This is just the start. I can’t get too ahead of myself after just setting up one goal, but I’ll keep working hard and pushing forward to create more chances for the boys. I’m a lot more relaxed going into games now, I’m feeling less pressure, and I can go out there and play my own game. I’m a confidence player, and you need that confidence to go into games and do what you want to do. I was buzzing with that. I’ve been smiling ever since I got into the dressing room, and the lads are buzzing for me as well. I’m delighted

“I think with the chances that we had, we shouldn’t have been further in front, but it wasn’t to be. We had to show a lot of character to stay in the game, and we did. We’ve worked hard. There has been a lot of games in a short period of time, a lot of chopping and changing, but all the boys have been ready, they’ve been preparing well and on reflection, we’ve got some good results.”
