Hatem Ben Arfa has been tearing it up back in Ligue 1 this season.

With only eight league matches so far, the former Newcastle winger already has six goals.

The latest two goals cam eon Sunday night when Nice travelled to St. Etienne.

The home side were second in the table but despite two red cards for the visitors, Nice ran out 4-1 winners, with two Hatem Ben Arfa goals in the last six minutes of the first half.

With the two French wingers who have followed at St James Park, both struggling to impress this season, the irony isn’t lost on me when I watch Hatem Ben Arfa score a beautiful goal such as this latest one (watch below).

A winger that Newcastle United gave away for nothing.

Florian Thauvin was dropped against Chelsea on Saturday and with his six goals, Hatem Ben Arfa has already scored one more than Thauvin did for Marseille in Ligue 1 last season.

As for Remy Cabella, he completed his first full 9o minutes tonight after being subbed in his previous five appearances for Marseille.

However, things aren’t taking an upturn for him or his team, Cabella got a yellow card and Marseille lost at home to Angers.
