Newcastle United picked up their 14th Championship away victory of the season as they beat Cardiff City 2-0 at the Cardiff City Stadium on Friday night, keeping their chances of winning the title alive.
A second half free-kick from Christian Atsu was added to by a fine strike from Isaac Hayden just 10 minutes later to wrap up all three points for the Magpies, moving them to within one point of leaders Brighton and Hove Albion with one fixture of the campaign remaining.
The 22-year-old moved to St James’ Park from Arsenal on a five-year deal last summer and he has gone on to be a key performer for the Toon this term as they have made an immediate return to the Premier League, scoring two goals in 32 league appearances.
Newcastle supporters were quick to give their reaction to the midfielder’s latest outing via social media, and they believe that he is proving to be one of the bargains of the season.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction to his showing…
