Newcastle supporters hail Christian Atsu over masterful performance at Watford

Newcastle fans have hailed their Ghana star Christian Atsu for his excellent showing in their draw at Watford in their English Premier League match on Saturday.

Atsu was in top form for Newcastle United as they travelled to hold Watford to a 1-1 draw which has drawn praise for the midfielder after being lambasted in previous games.

The Ghana international was axed from the Magpies squad in their previous match on Boxing Day after some unimpressive showing in recent matches.

But Atsu seems to have learnt his lessons as he played his heart out and was instrumental in his side's goal which could spark him being given regular playing time at Newcastle.

The Ghana star was heavily credited for Newcastle's opener as he started the fabulously worked goal by the visiting side.

Atsu had a lovely drop of the shoulder to lose two Watford players and with simple well-weighted pass to release Ritchie on the left who crossed for Rondon to gleefully nodded home.

Substitute Abdoulaye Doucoure salvaged a point for Watford but he should have earned his side all three against Newcastle at Vicarage Road.

Supporters of Newcastle took to social media to praise Atsu for his performance and below are some of the comments.
