Newcastle United: Joelinton’s aerial duel stat fails to impress supporters

Newcastle United: Joelinton’s aerial duel stat fails to impress supporters - Newcastle United

Following Newcastle United’s unlikely 2-2 draw at home to Premier League champions Manchester City last weekend, a match where Joelinton arguably showcased one of his best performances of the season, a latest aerial duel stat regarding the forward has failed to impress supporters. 

According to Twitter account Toon Updates, the Brazilian striker has won 76 aerial battles this season, the most at the club so far this campaign – meanwhile, second-placed Jamaal Lascelles is only on 24, pretty remarkable considering the long periods of pressure sustained by the Magpies back line.

Is it Joelinton's fault given his lack of service?

Yes

Yes

No

No

In the Premier League as a whole, Joelinton is only second to Sebastien Haller – with West Ham United’s target man currently on 90 won duels.

Even though this seems like an impressive feat, and could be evidence of Joelinton’s presence up front, some supporters aren’t having any of it – responding in hilarious fashion to the feat.

The 23-year-old has scored just once for the Magpies this campaign; meanwhile, fellow star signings Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron have yet to open their account.

Here’s what supporters said regarding the stat on social media.
