For the third game running Ayoze Perez was our Man Of The Match in the 1-0 defeat by Sunderland yesterday at St. James’ Park.
Ayoze Perez goes close yesterday
Alan Pardew continues to start the 21 year-old, mainly because Papiss Cisse is still not fully fit, and Ayoze is picking up much needed experience in the Premier League this season.
Along with Moussa Sissoko he was again our most dangerous player, and was unlucky not to score on two or three occasions.
This is what Steven Taylor told the Chronicle today about Ayoze:
“He was causing them a lot of problems, inside and outside, they were scared to touch him in the box.” “He was just unlucky that everything he hit went straight at the goalkeeper.”
“For us, it’s just a bit of a killer.”
Ayoze has a massive 61% of the vote followed by Moussa Sissoko with 21%, and the Frenchman went close yesterday with a couple of good attempts.
Third in the voting is Steven Taylor, who at the end of the game was one of six Geordies on the pitch – and it’s decades since that last happened.
