Joselu is certainly surprising Newcastle fans, having been brought in as what looked a desperation signing by Rafa Benitez.
With the United boss blocked from spending big money, worries about the quality of Mitrovic and fitness/confidence of Dwight Gayle, meant that Rafa was pushed into making the bargain £5m signing from Stoke City.
There is also wider recognition for the Spanish striker with the official Premier League site running a feature pointing out the players with most shots on target this season so far.
There are four who top that with nine attempts on target so far:
Joselu – 9 shots on target in 188 minutes of Premier League football
Mohamed Salah – 9 shots on target in 251 minutes of Premier League football
Harry Kane – 9 shots on target in 355 minutes of Premier League football
Romelu Lukaku – 9 shots on target in 360 minutes of Premier League football
Remarkably, Joselu has had as many shots on target as these players who play for three of the most attacking/dominant clubs BUT more than that, he has had as many strikes on target as Kane and Lukaku despite playing half as many minutes.
When it comes to having a shot, Joselu once again has impressive stats, with a shot every 15.7 minutes, the top three in the Premier League being:
Harry Kane has a shot every 12.7 minutes
Joselu has a shot every 15.7 minutes
Romelu Lukaku has a shot every 18.0 minutes
His all round game is also a bonus, as for Newcastle United he is also joint-third for chances created, with five.
