A brilliant first start for Christian Atsu.
On loan from Chelsea with a view to a permanent deal, the super fast winner was by far Newcastle’s best player as he showed that Matt Ritchie isn’t the only creative force on the wings at Newcastle United.
To top off his performance, Christian Atsu produced a stunning strike to win the match.
