Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez has come in for a fair amount of criticism during the 2018/19 season so far.

With poor performance and poor results seeing us winless so far under manager Rafa Benitez, the 25-year-old was one casualty of his own showings and he began the game on the bench. There were even slight boos when the gaffer was ready to bring him on as a substitute against Watford last Saturday.

Any concerns at that decision soon evaporated as he found the back of the net in the 65th minute to not only bag his first goal of the year but also ultimately our first win and three points.

Having taken his criticism previously on social media, it was time for him to get some praise as fans celebrated his goal and the result.

Not only do fans hope this is now a turn in form for the club on the pitch, Perez will no doubt be hoping there are now better days ahead for him on a personal level as well.
