An 'outrageous' bit of skill by Bruno Guimaraes has caught the attention of Newcastle United fans.

Bruno Guimaraes put in a stellar performance as Newcastle United beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-0 at St James' Park.

The Brazilian was once again at the heart of everything for the Magpies with his long bursting run from midfield help setting up the opener when his cross deflected into the path of Alexander Isak, who headed home.

Anthony Gordon made it 2-0 before half-time, and it was in the second-half when Guimaraes really began to strut his stuff. Indeed, supporters watching on were left blown away when the 26-year-old hit a no-look pass to play in substitute Miguel Almiron, but unfortunately Dan Bentley's goalkeeping prevented an assist.

But that took nothing away from Guimaraes, whose 'outrageous' piece of skill continues to do the rounds on social media as we speak.

Reacting to Newcastle's win on X, formerly known as Twitter, Guimaraes said: "Lovely weekend @NUFC fans!! I hope you have enjoyed it today! Back to win, howay the lads".

Commenting on Guimaraes' performance, United boss Eddie Howe added: “I thought he was (Bruno) was very good and had moments where he really showed his class. When he’s at the top of his game, for me, there’s no one better in playing the role that he does.

" I was really pleased with his impact in the first goal because it’s a full length of the pitch counter-attack and he’s had to make up a lot of yards to get a vital contribution to that goal.

"That lets me know that, mentally, he’s in a good place and, physically, he’s in a good place too after a three-game week with extra-time. I was really pleased with that part of his game."
