Loads of Newcastle fans have been discussing their goalscoring woes, and there are plenty of shouts for Elias Sorensen to get a shot in the first team.
Newcastle have had a horrific start to the season, due mainly to the fact that they just aren’t scoring any goals.
The Magpies have just two points from their first nine games, and have scored just six goals in those nine matches.
Aleksandar Mitrovic left the club in the summer, but neither of Yoshinori Muto or Salomon Rondon have been able to fill the goalscoring void.

One man who has been banging the goals in is Sorensen, who hit a hat-trick for the Newcastle Under-23s on Monday night.
The young magpies romped past Aston Villa’s Under-23s, and Sorensen has now scored 12 goals already this season.
The 19 year-old moved to Tyneside in 2016 as a 16 year-old, and his rise through the youth ranks has been truly remarkable.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where fans are hoping Rafael Benitez will be brave enough to call on the teenager…

He should watch out. If he keeps scoring goals Rafa will get rid of him and try to replace him with another goalkeeper…

Yeah it’s only the u23s but finishing is finishing…I wouldn’t trust Perez or Joselu to finish their dinner.

Rafa would never pick a young player. not his style. he prefers to sell any young player wih talent: mitro, thauvin, mbabu, merino, mbemba, aarons. he prefers steady Eddie’s like joselu

If he isn’t given a first team opportunity we might as well close our U23s, what’s the point of it if there is no progression to the first team

Surely even a place on the bench or even a few days training with the first team, can’t do any harm #NUFC

He deserves a place on the bench over Atsu/Murphy though

Give him a go,if he’s good enough he’s old enough.Look at how old Michael Owen was when he got into Liverpool’s team??
