Newcastle fans on Twitter still enjoying Joselu’s header against Chelsea

A lot of Newcastle fans would have happily seen Joselu depart St James park over the summer, however, he’s stuck around and shown why that’s a great decision by the club too. The Spanish striker has scored both of the club’s goals this season and his header against Chelsea was sublime.

After falling behind to a dubious penalty with just 15 minutes to go, DeAndre Yedlin beat Olivier Giroud to a loose ball down the Magpies right flank. In the process, the American left an elbow on Giroud and whilst the Chelsea backline called for a free-kick, Joselu got across David Luiz to meet Yedlin’s cross and fire a lovely header past Kepa Arrizabalaga at the near post.

The Magpies were ultimately beaten on Sunday when DeAndre quickly turned from hero to zero when he turned the ball into his own net with just three minutes of normal time remaining. That’s not the point, though, as the way the Geordies have looked dangerous and managed to score against both Tottenham and Chelsea is to be commended. Rafa Benitez knows what he’s doing and whilst it’s not looking great with just one point on the board, the form of Joselu is something to celebrate and it’s just a matter of time until they finally get a win.

The Magpies will be keen to see more of the same from Joselu as they aim to get their first win of the season in the coming weeks.
