Ayoze Perez has a good habit of coming into form near the end of the season, and the Spaniard had an excellent game for us in the surprise but a welcome 1-0 win at the King Power Stadium on Friday night.
Ayoze scored the goal from an excellent Matt Ritchie left-wing cross after 32 minutes and Perez glanced the ball into the net with his head for the winner.
He played well throughout the game, and some of his wizardry almost got us another goal with 15 minutes to go.
He sublimely went past the Leicester left-back and almost scored, but the goalkeeper blocked his shot.
Perez is in form, and we need his goals in the final four games of the season.
Ayoze Perez – great goal – excellent performance
Next in the voting is Matt Ritchie who put in another top performance for Newcastle.
It would be ludicrous for Matt to leave Newcastle this summer when his best (three) years are ahead of him at Newcastle.
Fabian Schar is one of our favorite players, and he gives Newcastle something extra when he’s in the team.
The Swiss International was strong at the back.
The center-back had another one of those mazy runs forward and set up Almiron in the inside left position but the Paraguayan ht the ball high and wide.
Fabian has been one of our best players this season.
A great performance from our lads on Friday night and they deserve all the credit.
Now to get four wins in our final four games.
