Newcastle fans split over Atsu ahead of Fulham clash

Loads of Newcastle fans have been giving their verdict on the form and future of Christian Atsu, and it seems the Toon Army are split over the 26 year-old.

Atsu had fallen completely out of favour at the beginning of this season, but the flying winger has started Newcastle’s last three matches.

The Ghanaian international has never really won over the fans on Tyneside though, due mainly to his horrific lack of end product, but he has shown glimpses of his ability in the last few weeks.

He was one of the best players on the pitch during the draw at Everton, and was rewarded with two starts against Wolves and Huddersfield, but both of those games ended in defeat.

While there’s no doubt he has been far better so far this campaign than he was last season, it can’t be a coincidence that the Magpies have just one point from the four games he has started.

Saturday’s visit of the league’s worst defence in Fulham is a great chance for him to improve on his dreadful record of seven goals and five assists in 76 appearances on Tyneside, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
