Former Newcastle and England striker Michael Owen has been predicting this weekend’s Premier League games on Betvictor.com.
He’s liked what he has seen so far from our new signing Yoshinori Muto, and the Japanese International had a good game at Old Trafford in his first start for Newcastle.
Newcastle were buzzing in that first half last time out, and after Kenedy had scored a beautiful goal after being put through by Perez, Muto put Newcastle 2-0 up after just 10 minutes with an opportunist goal.
But we still ended up losing 3-2.
We are hoping Muto can keep up that good form and Kenedy also looked back in excellent form before he was taken off in the second half.
Muto celebrates after scoring his first Newcastle goal – YES!
Michael has been writing for Betvictor.com, and he talks about the new signing.
But he thinks Newcastle will only be able to get a point tomorrow at home to a resilient Brighton side:
“I was particularly impressed with Yoshinori Muto against Manchester United and am looking forward to seeing more of the Japanese striker.”
“I appreciate it is early days, but it was a very favorable first impression.”
“United have, however, lost their first four home games this season and were disappointing against Leicester last time. “
“They may have to settle for a point in a low-scoring game against the resilient Seagulls.”
“It wasn’t meant to be, however, but I thought the Magpies played some terrific football in the first 45 minutes.
Muto joined us from Bundesliga club Mainz in the summer transfer window for around £9.5M, and he is adjusting to life in the Premier League.
But if he keeps playing like he did last time out we will have an outstanding player on our hands.
