Isak joins an exclusive club
Newcastle went 1-0 down after eight minutes vs West Ham thanks to a Tomas Soucek effort. However, Alexander Isak went on to net a five-minute brace in the second 45 to put the visitors in front.
Mohammed Kudus scored a late equaliser to rob Newcastle of the three points, but it was still a good day for Isak. The 24-year-old now has six goals in seven Premier League games in 2023/24.
And after finding the net vs David Moyes’ men, it has been revealed that Alexander Isak is the third Swedish player to score in three consecutive Premier League appearances, after Freddie Ljungberg (a run of 5 in April 2002) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (2 runs in 2016/17).
With Newcastle fighting it out in four competitions this season, Isak maintaining his goalscoring form will be vital to the North East outfit’s success.
