It’s always a good sign when two players who have been on the periphery of the first team this season, finally get a start, and they play very well and in fact turn out to be Newcastle’s best two players.
Hatem Ben Arfa – top man – again
And that’s exactly what happened on Tuesday night, and following the withdrawal of Yohan Cabaye, who signed on at PSG yesterday – both Hatem Ben Arfa and local lad Sammy Ameobi got starts at Norwich City and lead our poll for Man of the Match,
Ben Arfa leads with 38% of the vote, followed by Sammy with 22% and Moussa Sissoko in third place with 14%.
We’d love to see both of these very skillful wingers get a lot more chances for Newcastle in our last 15 games of the season – and of course Ben Arfa has always been a match winner for Newcastle.
