In what was another excellent team performance from Newcastle yesterday in the 2-1 win at Leicester City there were a few players who stood out.
Jonjo Shelvey had another first-class game, and he admits he’s in the best form of his Newcastle career, and he scored the go-ahead goal after 18 minutes.
He’s our Man of the Match with 32% of the vote.
The way Jonjo played yesterday has more pundits calling for him to be included in England’s squad for the World Cup in Russia this summer, but we doubt that manager Gareth Southgate will be taking him to Russia.
Jonjo Shelvey – scoring Newcastle’s first goal yesterday
Jonjo seems to be starting to get to grips with his indiscipline on the field and hopefully, he can keep his good record for the final six games left this season.
Ayoze Perez for the second week running scored the winning goal late in the game – this time after 75 minutes when he brilliantly lobbed the goalkeeper.
Ayoze is second in the voting with 25% of the vote.
The Spaniard is coming into some good form, and he seems to be thriving at the moment.
With his goal yesterday he’s become Newcastle’s top scorer with 6 goals this season with four of those in the Premier League: he also has 4 assists.
Last but not least we want to mention another solid display put in by local lad Paul Dummett at left-back: Paul is looking better and better as the season progresses – he’s one of Rafa’s trusted players.
Paul got 15% of the vote.
