We are hoping Dwight Gayle can start scoring the goals for us in the Premier League and he has never had too much success in the past at the highest level of English football.
His goal on Saturday – the first home goal conceded by the Red Devils in the league this season and Dwight’s first goal of the season, was a well-taken striker’s goal.
And we cannot forget that in the last game against Bournemouth he scored another perfectly good goal in the first half which was wrongly ruled by the officials to be offside.
Dwight looks fully fit again and maybe coming into some good form – we hope so!
We now have 10 games to go through January 1st, and Rafa will hope to bring in at least one striker at that time, but until then we need some players to start scoring goals.
Dwight Gayle – scores at Old Trafford
We have only 11 goals in the 12 games played in the league so far.
Of all the strikers we have at the club, Dwight is the only natural goalscorer we have.
And he showed that with a lovely goal on Saturday at Old Trafford when he hit the ball first time into the back of the net following excellent play by DeAndre Yedlin down the right wing.
Of course, Dwight was one of our heroes last season scoring 23 Championship goals in just 32 league appearances
Maybe a good time to score more goals will be at home to Watford on Saturday?
Dwight can play very well at St. James’ Park when he is often lifted by the crowd.
Watford beat West Ham 2-0 on Sunday, and they are a well-coached side these days since manager Marco Silva arrived in the summer.
We really do a need a win on Saturday, but Watford are a well-organized side and difficult to break down.
With Brighton drawing 2-2 at home to Stoke last night here’s where Newcastle are currently in the league table – still in 11th place.
And here are the goalscorers this season – no player has scored more than two!
