With the 6-1 humiliation at the Etihad Stadium yesterday nothing much has been said of Alexander Mitrovic´s first goal for Newcastle but it was a great team goal.
Kevin Mbabu went racing down the wing and then passed the ball inside to Wijnaldum and mots players in his position would have had a shot.
But the Dutchman saw Mitrovic clear in the box and chipped the ball to him and the 21 year-old did the rest heading the ball home to put Newcastle 1-0 up.
Aleksandar Mitrovic´ first goal for Newcastle United
How many Newcastle fans at that point thought we would end up losing the match 6-1.
We need some defenders brought in over the January transfer window.
Alexander easily wins our Man of the Match award with 68% of the vote, and the lad again put in a disciplined performance and didn’t pick up a caution.
The 21 year-old looks a good player and will score some goals for us – if only we can close the back door and stop the goals being conceded.
