Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to a promising pre-Bournemouth update, as 19 year-old Elias Sorensen is training with the first team.
Newcastle are absolutely crying out for some inspiration in front of goal, and fans are hoping it will come from Sorensen.
The 19 year-old has been in unbelievable form for the club’s Under-23 side, scoring ten times in 11 appearances this season.
He is now training with the first team ahead of Bournemouth’s visit to St James’ Park, and fans are desperate for Rafael Benitez to give the youngster a chance.
Salomon Rondon and Yoshinori Muto have scored just one goal each since signing in the summer, and Muto is expected to miss the visit of the Cherries through injury.
It seems unlikely that Sorensen will play after only just joining up with the first team, but desperation may just force the manager’s hand.

Rooney & Mbappe were 16 or 17 when they made first team debuts. It didn't do them any harm.
