Who will be the Newcastle top scorer in the Premier League this season?
Six goals so far in the five matches but has that given us any real indication?
The roll of honour at this point is goals for Ciaran Clark, Christian Atsu, Josulu and Aleksandar Mitrovic, as well as two for Jamaal Lascelles.
Joselu has started well at Newcastle with his all round game but despite his goal against West Ham, he doesn’t look a natural.
The trio of missed chances against Stoke City maybe reminding us of why at the age of 27 he still hasn’t scored 10 or more league goals in a season in any top division.
Mitro has one but with yet another ban and Rafa Benitez still not appearing to see him as a first choice striker, hard to weigh his chances up.
As for Dwight Gayle, expected to be the main man this season after 23 goals despite only 26 Championship starts last season, he has made a poor start and then been left out with hamstring/confidence issues.
In the betting below, the fact that Atsu is ahead of Perez in the betting tells you how little goal threat the Spaniard has provided this season.
Not sure how many will be backing Mohamed Diame…
I really can’t decide between the top trio in the betting, who do you fancy?
