Young Newcastle United striker Elias Sorensen helped himself to his 15th goal of the 2018/19 campaign during Tuesday evening’s EFL Trophy clash with Grimsby Town.

Newcastle’s Under 23s helped themselves to 3-2 victory on the night and Sorensen once again took centre stage with his performance.

Calls for a promotion into the senior squad certainly aren’t new given our goalscoring problems across the Premier League campaign so far, and whilst plenty of fans thought it was a no brainer owing to the fact he couldn’t do worse than some seniors and not find the back of the net, others urged a little more caution given confidence in the group and the damaging effect that might have on his development.

With Newcastle on an unbeaten run now and picking up points, those concerns aren’t quite as prominent.

The 19-year-old should have a big future ahead of him and lots of fans already refer to him as a the Danish Shearer so it should only be a matter of time before he gets a few minutes here and there to give him a taste, and ideally given his development this season, we’ll get him out in January for some proper experience as we look to the future.

Well, as much as Newcastle seem to look to the future these days.
