Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon gives perfect response to Sunderland player that ripped his shirt

Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon gives the perfect response to a Sunderland player that ripped his shirt in the FA Cup tie at the Stadium of Light.

Gordon tried to get on to the end of a high ball played over the Sunderland defence in Saturday afternoon’s FA Cup Third Round clash, with Newcastle going on to win 3-0.

Trying to stop Gordon however was Trai Hume, who tore part of Gordon’s shirt while trying to stop him on the pitch.

The 22 year old was spotted on camera giving a cheeky response to Hume, initially angry with the foul, Gordon then walks back and says: ‘You can have my shirt after the game if you want.’

Gordon took to social media following the match, in which he posted a photo of his with joyous Newcastle fans, and captioned the Instagram post: “You’ve seen United… UTFM 🤍🖤”

Mockery also turned to Daniel Ballard having produced an own goal in the first half to put the Magpies ahead before Alexander Isak made it 2-0 soon after the second half got underway.

Isak then completed his brace in the 90th minute as his club reached the Fourth Round with the draw taking place on Monday.

When questioned if Newcastle could use the win as a launch pad, Eddie Howe said: “Well, hopefully. That’s how we have to look at it.

“Naturally, when you don’t win for a period of time, confidence can be affected. Our players are the same as any others.

“Today will have done them the world of good. We’ve not just won the game, but we’ve performed well, we’ve scored goals, we’ve kept a clean sheet so all round, it’s a very good day.

“The third round has not been kind to us the last couple of years, two difficult moments for us.

“But those moments actually helped us grow. Now we stand here and we know we needed to win today, so we’re delighted to do that and yes, we’d love a run in the FA Cup. It’s an important competition now for us.”

“It was a tough afternoon,” said Sunderland boss Michael Beale, as per Chronicle Live.

“In the first half, for the most part, I thought we defended OK, but in possession we weren’t tidy enough and we didn’t show enough quality to throw any punches at Newcastle. We went in at half time, we spoke about being bold, we made a couple of changes to get people higher up the pitch and bring the back four higher, but then we had the worst possible start to the second half – that’s clear for everyone to see.

“After that, I thought we actually started to get into some interesting areas – Pritch hit the bar, and the goalkeeper made a fantastic save down to his right. If we’d scored in that moment I think the fans would have done rest for us because they were fantastic in their backing of the team today.

“But the two goals we conceded in the second half … because the third goal was really poor on our part as well. Let’s be honest, there was a gap between the two teams when we arrived at the stadium today, and we tried to close that gap over the 90 minutes and we weren’t able to do that.

“This is a young team and they have to be honest with themselves – as do the staff and coaches – about today because then I think we will improve. The big thing for us is being honest and not hiding away from the fact there is a gap.”
