Dwight Gayle made the opener for Joselu for the Spaniard’s third goal of the season, and Dwight equalized in the second half to set us up for a point that we didn’t take and ended up losing again.
That was Dwight’s third Premier League goal, and he’s coming into some good form at a crucial time of the season for Newcastle.
Dwight got 63% of the vote for his assist and goal yesterday.
There are reports he will be sold in January but why sell a player who can score goals when we are so short of natural goalscorers in the team?
Second in the voting is 21-year-old Mikel Merino (10%) who is slowly getting back into the form he showed before his back injury.
Dwight Gayle – one goal and one assist
Third in the voting is 22-year-old Jacob Murphy (8%) who started the game brightly but then tailed off before being subbed in the second half.
But Jacob has shown he can become a good player at Newcastle once he gets more games under his belt.
Next up for Newcastle is an in-form Everton side who have been buoyed by the experienced Sam Allardyce coming in as manager.
We must try to get a win on Wednesday night at St. James’ Park.
Why Jonjo Shelvey is not being played these days is a little bit of a mystery – maybe he will get a chance on Wednesday night against the Toffees.
