In the 15th minute of this afternoon’s Premier League encounter between Newcastle and Southampton, Arsenal talent Joe Willock kicked off his loan debut for the Magpies with a nice goal.
Fabian Schar launched the ball forward, with Allan Saint-Maximin latching onto the ball and bursting into the box, before unselfishly picking out a smart run into the box by Willock.
The 21-year-old attacking midfielder slotted the ball into the back of the net with a lovely first-time finish, with Willock enjoying a wonderful moment not long after Arsenal lost to Aston Villa.

Willock started 10 of his 18 appearances for Mikel Arteta’s side in the first-half of the season, but wasn’t being afforded valuable minutes in the Premier League to continue his development.
