On his first start for Newcastle United and home debut, it only took Florian three minutes to put the ball in the back of the net.

With Northampton defending the Leazes End goal, Massadio Haidara swung over a cross from the left.

Showing the same willingness to get in the box as he did on Saturday at Old Trafford, Thauvin met it on the volley to record his first of hopefully many goals in black and white.

A great start for the French winger and let’s hope this helps the confidence flow, an essential commodity for any winger.
