Loads of Newcastle fans have been giving their verdict on Saturday’s momentous win, and they’re absolutely full of praise for the match winner Salomon Rondon.
Newcastle are up to 14th after picking up their second consecutive win on Saturday, and fans simply can’t get enough of Rondon.
The Venezuelan international was quite a controversial signing, as many fans felt they were simply signing a worse version of Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Both players are excellent in the air, but Rondon might soon prove Rafael Benitez right if he can continue this form.
The 29 year-old won a remarkable eight aerial duels against Bournemouth, and of course scored the crucial goals to earn the Magpies all three points.
His thumping header for the second goal was exceptional, and fans are now heaping praise on Rafa’s main summer signing.
The Magpies have been strongly linked with goalscoring machine Sebastien Haller, but Rondon sure looks ready to fight for his place.

Interesting fact. Your king and idol Alexander Mitrovic has scored 1 goal in his last 7 games for Fulham, has a worse strike rate than Salomón Rondon, and his team are rock bottom of the league. pic.twitter.com/s72eVXVQtT
