Atsu received the ball from Jonjo Shelvey on the left wing, bamboozled Darnell Fisher with his trickery before curling a beautiful left-footed effort beyond the reach of goalkeeper Lee Camp.
Simon McPhee proclaimed: “Atsu looks absolutely class, what a finish! #nufc,” while, Chris Johnson agreed saying: “What a beauty by Atsu. No saving that. #NUFC.”
Tyne Dweller labeled it: “One of the best goals I’ve seen for a long time,” while Dylan Elliswill dubbed the diminutive winger the “new Ben Arfa”.
“Goal for Atsu. Glad to see him making an impact, about time he got more opportunities #nufc,” wrote Ross Lindsay who was glad to see Atsu grabbing his chance.
