We probably saw last night the best performance from Remy Cabella in a black and white shirt, as he completely changed the game in Newcastle’s favor in the second half.
Remy Cabella – had a very good second half
Cabella was brought on for the ineffective Ayoze Perez at half time, and the young Spaniard seemed to have trouble getting to grips playing the withdrawn striker role in a 4-2-3-1 formation – and he was hardly in the game in the first half.
Remy showed skill and speed and worked his socks off in that second half, and threatened the Burnley defense along with Sammy Ameobi, who also looked very good for Newcastle.
Remy Cabella was our Man of the Match with 40% of the vote followed by the once again impressive Mehdi Abeid in midfield with 19% of the vote, and Sammy Ameobi with 12%.
With Cheick Tiote back, and Moussa Sissoko and Jack Colback to return to the side on Saturday against Chelsea, it’s going to be interesting to see if Alan Pardew will bench Mehdi, after another very good display for Newcastle United at Turf Moor.
What would your team be for the Chelsea game – assuming Colo and Rolando Aarons are available?
