Newcastle United: Fans hail polarising figure Joelinton after Manchester United display

Newcastle United: Fans hail polarising figure Joelinton after Manchester United display - Newcastle United

Having only scored one goal so far since signing for Newcastle United last summer, a lot of supporters previously targeted Joelinton as a real weakness to Steve Bruce’s side – but after his performance in the 4-1 loss at Old Trafford on Boxing Day, they’ve started to lighten the criticism. 

Should Joelinton play wide of Andy Carroll?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Brazilian moved to Tyneside for a club record-breaking £40 million fee, bringing with him Champions League experience and versatility – having played on the left-flank and upfront during his time at Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim.

However, you have to cast your mind back to August for his last Premier League goal, coming in a 1-0 away win at Spurs – with the forward struggling to find the net during his debut season so far.

The run without a goal didn’t break in his last outing either, with his side eventually succumbing to a heavy defeat at Man United, but he did show glimpses of true quality – most notably his build up play for Dwight Gayle who blazed a glorious chance early in the game.

As a result, supporters have praised Joelinton for his efforts – here’s what they had to say.
