Jonjo Shelvey had a good game yesterday and Rafa Benitez seems to be willing to start him at home as Newcastle look to attack at St. James’ Park.
Yesterday he was our Man of the Match with 29% of the vote edging out Yoan Gouffran (20%) who had yet another good game fort Newcastle and is fast looking a good player on Tyneside and playing some of his best football at the club.
Jonjo Shelvey after scoring terrific goal
Third in the voting was Mohamed Diame (16%) who we really like as a player and he should get better as he becomes fitter as he continues to get more games under his belt.
Jonjo scored a wonderful goal from a free kick on 63 minutes, to put the game beyond doubt with Newcastle going 2-0 ahead against a 10 man Brighton side.
There’s no doubt that Shelvey has great ability but he has to be more consistent to become a real star player on Tyneside – but he can do that under the guidance of Rafa Benitez.
Jamaal Lascelles first half goal after 15 minutes was another good goal from Newcastle with the young captain coming in 4th in the voting (10%) and starting to look like his old self these days.
Here’s the highlights of the game to enjoy again.
