Remy Cabella was our Man of the Match last week with 44% of the vote at Leicester, and it’s the same player yesterday – with Remy this time getting a massive 87% of the vote and probably having his best game in a black and white shirt, and he played the full 90 minutes in our 2-0 loss to Chelsea.
Remy Cabella in action at Chelsea
Remy was so unlucky (again) not to score his first goal for the side, but yesterday he looked full of confidence and was a threat to Chelsea, especially in the first half when he was unlucky not to score twice with two good efforts.
The other outstanding player for Newcastle yesterday was Moussa Sissoko with 4% of the vote, and Moussa’s getting not only to be Newcastle’s best player this season, but he is is also becoming very consistent with his performances.
Ayoze Perez was third in the voting with 2% and we noticed how strong the 21 year-old’s getting and seemed to hold his own against John Terry in the physical department, which was good to see.
We have to give credit to Newcastle for a great first half performance yesterday, but we just couldn’t keep it up in the second half when Chelsea were more like Chelsea, and wrapped up the win fairly easily.
But the biggest thing we took out of the game is that Remy Cabella is starting to look like the player we thought we had signed in the summer.
That’s got to be good news for Newcastle.
