Geremi has so far scored two goals for Newcastle United this season and he admits he would love to score against his old club Chelsea on Monday afternoon.
Geremi in training
His last goal which was the equalizer against West Ham last Saturday was a glancing header from a thunderbolt shot from Oba Martins. Geremi talked today to the Evening Chronicle about the goal.
â€œI saw the ball come, and it was not going to the goal. I tried to guide it in, and fortunately it went in.â€
â€œSome people reminded me that I have scored two goals on my last two games in London, which is good for me but what would give me great pleasure is another goal against a London club at home on Monday.â€
Geremi is more a goal-maker than a goalscorer however, and he has 5 assists to his name this season as well as his two goals.
Geremi can be a beautiful crosser of the ball and of course he laid one on for Michael Owen after 4 minutes recently against Sunderland at St. Jamesâ€™ Park.
This is more than any other Newcastle player this season, and Geremi has certainly become a good player again under Kevin Keegan.
â€œIâ€™m not a goalscorer. I am a midfielder, who tries to work hard. I try to win the ball, and give some good assists â€“ that is my job.”
â€œBut when you are a player, and you score and get a good result, it is fantastic. You cannot put a price on that.â€
We will need Geremi at his very best next Monday if we are to get a result against an in-form Chelsea outfit, who will be fielding their strongest side trying to get the win, which could propel them to the Premier League Title.
