A number of Newcastle United fans have been left really impressed after some stats emerged showing the quality of striker Joelinton.  

With new boss Eddie Howe looking on (albeit from home), the Brazilian would have made a good early impression during the 3-3 draw against Brentford after scoring the Magpies second goal of the game.

Now, exact details of his heatmap have been shared online by the official Newcastle Twitter account, showing that his contribution to the team went far beyond just the goal he claimed.

Will Joelinton flourish under Eddie Howe?





After spotting the impressive statistical analysis, many United supporters were happy to share their thoughts on the player in the comments section.

Here’s what these Newcastle fans said…

“Absolute legend, could honestly save our season if he continues to play the way he did on Saturday.”

“His best game by miles so far. Howe has obviously instilled some confidence into the lad. Onwards and upwards hopefully.”
This was Joelinton’s first goal of the season, and indeed his first successful effort since May. He will surely be hoping it is a sign of things to come under his new boss as well.
