Newcastle fans hoping Sorensen plays against Bournemouth

Newcastle United fans are hopeful that 19-year-old forward Elias Sorensen will be involved against Bournemouth in the Premier League this weekend.

Sorensen has been training with the Newcastle squad this week off the back of his double for the club’s Under-23 side against Manchester United Under-23s earlier this month.

Sorensen has scored 13 times for the club’s Under-23 outfit this term, and his excellent form has been rewarded by a call up to first-team training.

Newcastle have not exactly been full of goals this season, with Salomon Rondon yet to register, and the likes of Yoshinori Muto, Joselu and Ayoze Perez managing just four between them.

The Newcastle fans have been reacting to images of Sorensen in training, and many are now hopeful that the striker will be given the chance by head coach Rafael Benitez to play against Bournemouth.

It would be a huge surprise if the teenager started against the Cherries, but there is seemingly a chance that he could make the bench.
