Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez had something to finally shout about last weekend as he opened his account for the club in the season of 2018/19 with the winning goal against Watford.

The 25-year-old striker does split opinions in the fanbase as his goal return isn’t the greatest for somebody in his position and the Spaniard isn’t a big target man either with the benefits that can bring. For a £1million fee back in the summer of 2014 though, plenty feel he has shown signs of developing and has been a bit of a bargain and still has a role to play – but to get the best from him, he should be used differently.

His peak years should still be ahead of him though and that does remain in his favour.

Highlighting how his goals usually come about is a fair point I think and even for those who praise and acknowledge his strength improvements, I think even they’d largely agree that his end product seems better when he’s more advanced, rather than in the mix of the battle.
