Christian Atsu – 7


First up, the new signing who was not really a new signing.

There was no sense of mystery for the fans when the club announced that Christian Atsu had agreed to join the club, with the Ghanaian having already spent a season on loan.

He had impressed in the Championship with his pace and attacking flair, but could he replicate his form in the Premier League?

Judging from his spells at Chelsea and Everton, fans would have been left uncertain.

However, he has proven the doubters wrong with a series of impressive performances, even managing to net his first Premier League goal with the opener against Stoke on Saturday.

A bright start to his career as a permanent Newcastle player.
