Newcastle star Florian Thauvin has been named in the Capital One Cup’s Team of the Round for his brilliant display against Northampton.

Steve McClaren’s £12million signing scored once - a spectacular high kick with his left foot - and assisted with three others in the 4-1 victory against the Cobblers at St James’s Park.

The team is picked based on suggestion from fans on social media, with the Frenchman joining Sunderland’s Jermain Defoe, who scored a hat-trick in round two, in the 11-strong line up.
