One thing that was positive for Newcastle in our 4-1 defeat at the Emirates yesterday afternoon, was the form and goal of 21 year-old Ayoze Perez, who arrived on Tyneside in the summer from Spain, and was supposed to be part of the Development squad under Peter Beardsley this season.
Ayoze Perez in action yesterday
But he immediately impressed in training and yesterday was his 17th appearance for the Newcastle first team and his fourth goal for us.
Ayoze is coming off a good season for Tenerife in the Spanish second division, when he scored 16 goals in 35 appearances.
A good shot of the goal – Ayoze Perez is there somewhere
Since we signed him for €2M (£1.6M), he is already a bargain buy and could turn out to be the find of the season.
He easily wins our Man of the Match for yesterday’s game with 52% of the vote, followed by Jack Colback, who gave another good performance for his home town club and put in some good free kicks and crosses, and Jack got the assist for the Ayoze goal yesterday.
Here is a video of that goal.
