Gordon has had a great start to the current campaign with Newcastle, making 17 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals, providing two assists and totalling 1,279 minutes of football thus far.
He has been essential for Eddie Howe’s side, pressing from the front, and adding intensity. His work both on but more importantly off the ball is a big reason he is viewed so positively by managers.
Gordon has already equalled his goal tally from last campaign, where he scored four goals in 34 appearances. He also had no assists last season, meaning he has already provided two more goal involvements than his previous campaign.
