Willock delighted with Liverpool equaliser: But I'm no Newcastle super sub

Joe Willock admits he doesn't want to be dubbed a "super sub" after his equaliser for Newcastle at Liverpool.

It wasn't the second time in a week Willock had jumped from the bench to score for the Toon.

The on-loan Arsenal midfielder said, "I don't want to be labelled a super sub but I'm happy I helped the team to a vital point that keeps us up in this league.

"Through these last weeks we've been growing in confidence, so much spirit and today shows how far we have come as a team.

"When you are come here and you are losing 1-0 for 89/90 minutes, it shows how far we've come that we got a point out of it.

"You can't really celebrate right now with VAR but I had a feeling it was a goal. Things are going for me at the moment and I'm happy I can help the team."
