For four glorious minutes, against Chelsea, it looked as if Newcastle United were going to get a share of the spoils.
After going behind to a controversial penalty, scored by Eden Hazard, Newcastle United equalized in dramatic fashion.
A cross, from the right, by Yedlin was expertly headed past Kepa, in the Chelsea goal, to level the game.
The header, which gave the Chelsea keeper no chance, had my Chelsea supporting friend inferring that it was similar in nature to Didier Drogba’s equalizer in the Champions League Final, against Bayern Munich.
If you get the chance, watch both he’s not wrong you know!
The goal was Joselu’s second of the season, with the striker having also scored against Tottenham Hotspur in the opening game of the season.
In fact, Joselu has scored all of Newcastle’s goals this season, a grand total of two.
Following the fixture, Joselu, via social media, bemoaned the fact his goal, in the end, counted for nothing, stating he’d rather not score as long as Newcastle United win:

Which leaves us to ask the golden question, even more so as Joselu came off the bench to replace Rondon, who would you rather see Rafael Benitez start with next time out?
