Wednesday evening’s Champions League clash between PSV Eindhoven and Tottenham Hotspur may not have held much interest for Newcastle United fans.

However, for anyone watching on they would’ve seen a somewhat familiar face in the shape of Dutchman Luuk de Jong. The 28-year-old has a half-season spell with the club back in the second half of the 2013/14 campaign and he made 12 appearances in total for us, without finding the back of the net as he made the loan switch from Borussia Monchengladbach.

Having been as useful as a chocolate teapot during his spell with us on a goal front, although plenty provide him with a defence for his form, he has predictably gone on to score 89 times for PSV in 174 showings, including nine in 14 matches so far in 2018/19 from a quick scout around the interweb.

Last night he grabbed their late leveller in the game to effectively end Mauricio Pochettino’s hopes of qualifying through from the Group Stages.

As the above comments imply, his goal saw a mix of surprise and ‘typical’ reactions on social media from fans.
