Ayoze Perez has been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League this season. The 21-year-old was expected to take a while before he established himself in the Newcastle United first-team. However, injuries have forced the club to use the youngster on a regular basis.
He has more than been impressive after having scored five goals in just 13 starts this campaign. This has led to defender Fabricio Coloccini praising the youngster by saying that he has done well to lead the line in the absence of PapissCisse. Newcastle are going through a turmoil yet again after the departure of Alan Pardew.
The club’s failure to win its last four matches in all competitions is threatening to disrupt any hopes of a top-10 finish. This appeared more than possible after Newcastle went on a run of several victories which included three points against the likes of Chelsea.
