Ex-Newcastle United midfielder Jermaine Jenasexpressed delight with three Newcastle United players for their respective contributions to the slender win over Burnley which boosted their hopes of surviving relegation from the Premier League this season.

Jermaine Jenas talked about the win over Burnley while he was on BBC Match of the Day as he praised the attacking trio of Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson. England international Wilson scored the only goal of the match five minutes from the half-time break as he pounced on the error from Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope. Newcastle United needed to win the game in the battle to avoid the drop and they were able to record a 1-0 win. The goal from Wilson gave Newcastle United their first league win of the season thus making the Magpies the final team to win a league game this season amongst the 92 professional teams in England.

The Newcastle United attacking trio of Allan Saint-Maximin, Callum Wilson and Joelinton were important to the win over the Clarets according to Jermaine Jenas who also praised the performance of Paraguay senior national team star Miguel Almiron who could have easily scored three goals during the Premier League clash with Burnley.

Newcastle United are the new moneybags in the Premier League, but they have their work cutout in the quest to survive relegation from the English top flight this season. The win over Burnley ensured that Newcastle United move three points adrift of safety and they could have drawn level on points with Watford in the last safe place on the log if they defeated hosts Leicester City on Sunday in their next league game after the Burnley clash. In the end, James Maddison, YouriTielemans (two goals) and PatsonDakascored to give the Foxes a 4-0 win over Newcastle United.
