NUFC’s 20 Frenchmen equal Arsenal record
Another unfunny comedy unveiled itself at Loftus Road but Newcastle United still managed to match a Premier League record held by Arsenal.
NUFC now have 20 different French players who have scored in the Premier League.
No other team can match that, apart from Arsenal, who under Arsene Wenger were the pioneers of wholesale tapping into the French market.
Emmanuel Riviere was Newcastle’s 20th with his very fortunate one-two (without using another player), the ball struck with his right and deflecting off his left, ending up looping over Rob Green
Who are the other 19 though?
Have a go at collectively completing the list in the comments below without searching the stats up…there are one or two tricky ones.
We’ll add the full list of the 20 French scorers at 1pm this afternoon, good luck!
