Newcastle United have struggled to find consistency in the Premier League this season, although a major upturn in form has occurred in recent weeks.

Rafael Benitez’s side were winless in their opening 10 matches of the campaign but brought an end to that woeful run with a narrow victory over Watford last week, then beating Bournemouth 2-1 at St. James’ Park on Saturday.

That has lifted the Magpies to 14th in the standings but they are still only a single point above the relegation zone and a lack of reliability in front of goal has been a concern, as Newcastle have scored just nine goals this season.

Three of those have come in the last two matches and it means only Southampton, Crystal Palace and Huddersfield have scored on fewer occasions this term.

Meanwhile, loanee Dwight Gayle has caught the eye with West Brom after hitting nine goals in 14 matches for the promotion-chasing Baggies and Newcastle fans have now given their say on whether they would like to see the forward back at St. James’ Park.

We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
