Newcastle United have only collected one point from their first four matches of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign, which is not exactly ideal.
However, it must be pointed out that three of those matches have been against Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester City.
Newcastle lost all three fixtures 2-1, and will be looking to record their first victory of the new Premier League season when they host Arsenal after the international break.
Joselu is the club’s top scorer this season having netted twice in four matches, but he was dropped to the bench against City as summer arrival Salomon Rondon came into the XI.

The 28-year-old only managed four Premier League goals last term, but is on course to better that tally this season.
The centre-forward’s work-rate has also continually impressed the Newcastle fans, and it seems that he is very popular with the supporters despite a lack of goals since arriving in the summer of 2017.
