It’s been a season of constant highs for Newcastle United. The Toon were relegated to the Championship only last season yet have made massive strides under Rafael Benitez; as a result, they are currently top of the league and are the clear favourites to gain automatic promotion next season.
For the first time in ages, they look like they’re under secure long-term management with Benitez in charge. They also have a few good players out on loan and one of those loanees is Siem De Jong, who is currently on loan to PSV.
The Dutchman hasn’t had the best of careers in a Newcastle shirt so far, but his recent goal against Vitesse shows he’s still a top notch player. Receiving a cut-back just inside the box, De Jong hit a wonderful first touch shot to score the opening goal.
