The Evening Chronicle have continued their series of best moments of the decade with the top ten best and most important goals by Newcastle players from 2010-2019.

Included in the list is Papiss Cisse’s wonder strike at Stamford Bridge, two Hatem Ben Arfa solo goals, Cheick Tiote’s superb volley in the 4-4 draw with Arsenal and Jonas Gutierrez’s emotional last-day strike to save us from relegation.

This has not been the best decade of Newcastle’s history, but it has arguably produced some our best and most memorable goals.

The Tiote strike, his only goal for the Toon, will never be forgotten on Tyneside or by the Premier League, and the two Ben Arfa strikes were the sign of a player at the peak of his powers who could not be stopped.

Overall, I can’t argue with any of their selections bar two.

The first one is an Ayoze Perez goal against Ipswich Town in the Championship.

The move involved all 11 Toon players and was finished off by the Spaniard, but it was not a standout goal for me.

If I was going to pick a Perez goal, it would have to be his ridiculous backheel at the Hawthorns in 2013.

The other goal that should not be on the list is Jack Grealish’s against Brighton.

The reason that it was selected is because it won us the Championship title, but it wasn’t one of our players who scored.

Which was the best Newcastle goal from the decade?

Tiote vs Arsenal

I would have had Yohan Cabaye’s free-kick against Manchester United or Papiss Cisse’s goal vs Southampton over the Grealish strike.

Other than that, though, it is a solid list compiled by the Chronicle.
