Newcastle United fans loved Kenedy’s performance on Saturday

Newcastle United loan signing Kenedy scored two superb goals at St James’ Park on Saturday, inspiring the Magpies to a vital 3-0 win over fellow relegation battlers Southampton in the English Premier League.

The win moves Rafa Benitez’s side up to 13th in the table and eases worries about dropping down to the Championship, now five points clear of the relegation zone.

There’s work left to do to ensure safety, but the win against Saints was absolutely crucial.

Kenedy was the hero of the afternoon, finishing expertly twice in the opening 30 minutes to give his side a comfortable afternoon in front of a buoyant home support.

Fans are now calling on the club to make his loan move from Chelsea permanent, believing he adds something completely different to this Newcastle side.

Will we be seeing the Brazilian in black and white next season?
