A lot of Newcastle United are talking about Joelinton’s latest performance for Newcastle.

The Brazilian went another Premier League game without scoring extending his goal drought to 22 matches, but the underlying stats showed that he actually had a pretty good game.

Was Joelinton that bad on Saturday?

Yes, he was awful

No, others were worse

Joelinton won nine of his 11 aerial duels, completed two out of two of his dribbles, created two chances, and he had one shot on target.

However, this isn’t enough for these Toon who want to see more from Joelinton.

What do we think?

Joelinton had Newcastle’s best chance of the game on Saturday when he saw his header saved brilliantly by Tim Krul. (0:52)

Apart from that, he did not have a chance, but what more can he do when Newcastle create an opportunity per game for him?

The former Hoffenheim striker, who is valued at £27m by Transfermarkt, cost the Toon £40m in the summer and has struggled in front of goal, but he has proved his worth in other areas.
