Taylor lauds Newcastle pair Perez, Armstrong in Man Utd defeat

Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor was full of praise for strikers Ayoze Perez and Adam Armstrong in defeat at Manchester United.

Taylor had plenty of praise for Perez after he put in a polished display at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.

He said: "Ayo for me was outstanding.

"He really was causing so many problems and they can't touch him. But for us he is the kind of guy who can change a game for us.

"We just have to rely on him now for the next game.

"Hopefully he can do the magic for us."

Taylor was also delighted by the contribution of his fellow Geordie Armstrong.

He said: "To come in in a massive game like this he did well, he got past them a couple of times and caused them a few problems so it was a good experience for him today and I am absolutely delighted for him."
