Twitter reacts as Newcastle youngster fires past Chelsea

Newcastle’s Ayoze Perez finally gave the Toon Army something to shout about with a stunning strike to open the scoring against Chelsea.

The 22-year old Spaniard expertly controlled Vurnon Anita’s deep cross to act on some poor defending by Kurt Zouma and Gary Cahill.

The former Tenerife starlet stunned the champions with a take down a certain Zinedine Zidane would certainly have been proud of.

After a miserable season so far, Steven McClaren’s side took the lead at St. James’ Park as Perez’s shot rebounded off the post and past Asmir Begovic.

He looks to be a bargain after arriving last summer in a cut price £1.5m deal from the Spanish second division side, under previous incumbent of the Magpies hot seat Alan Pardew.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho does suffer a bit of a North East hoodo, having never led his side to a Premier League victory in five attempts across his two spells.
