Newcastle United have endured a turbulent start to the Premier League campaign, although they finally secured a win at the 11th time of asking last weekend against Watford.
Ayoze Perez’s first goal of the season secured all three points at St. James’ Park but the Magpies have scored just seven goals so far this term – which shows there is huge room for improvements over the course of the coming months.
One option for Rafael Benitez is to look to his youth ranks for inspiration and Elias Sorenson is the youngster most likely to earn a first-team chance as he boasts a spectacular record of ten goals in ten games for the U23 side this season.
As a result, Sorenson has been rewarded for his fine form by training with the first-team squad ahead of this weekend’s clash with Bournemouth and that led to many fans on social media urging Benitez to give the 19-year-old a chance.
We have gathered of the best reactions below.
Rooney & Mbappe were 16 or 17 when they made first team debuts. It didn't do them any harm.
