Newcastle fans pleased with Diame form

Newcastle United have only lost one of their last seven in the Premier League, with that strong run of form moving them into 13th position in the table.

Manchester United were their opponents in the league last time out, and a second-half effort from Matt Ritchie secured a huge three points for Newcastle on home soil.

A number of players have been impressive for the Magpies in recent weeks, and Mohamed Diame certainly deserves to be placed in that category.

The 30-year-old has actually only started 12 Premier League games for Newcastle this season, but his form in recent weeks has kept him in Rafael Benitez’s XI.

Indeed, Diame, who is valued at £4.5m by, scored in the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on February 4 before impressing against Man United last time out.

The midfielder has not always felt the love of the Newcastle fans due to inconsistent form, but there is no question that the supporters are pleased with the Senegal international at the moment.
