Gary Gardner impressed with Aleksandar Mitrovic’s goal

St James Park

Aleksandar Mitrovic’s goal for Newcastle United against Norwich City impressed Aston Villa midfielder Gary Gardner.

Aston Villa midfielder Gary Gardner has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his admiration of Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic’s stunning goal against Norwich City.

Mitrovic scored the Magpies’ fourth goal of the evening at St. James’ Park in the Premier League encounter on Sunday evening.

The Serbia international striker found the target in the 64th minute when he shot home from inside the Norwich penalty box after being teed up by France international midfielder Moussa Sissoko.

The strike from the summer signing was reminiscent of the goals that Newcastle legend Alan Shearer used to score at St. James’ Park.

Villa midfielder Gardner was watching the game, and he was impressed with the goal scored by Mitrovic.

Mitrovic is a talented young striker, and his goal and performance against Norwich is certainly going to enhance his confidence.

The 21-year-old striker did not start his Premier League career well, but he seems to be getting better and better.
