Newcastle fans react to Adam Armstrong's performance on Twitter

Newcastle Fans 3

Newcastle United fans have been very impressed by Adam Armstrong's performance in last night's 3-2 win against Crystal Palace.

This season at Newcastle United has been particularly worrying, but amid the darkness there was a spot of light last night.

The performance of Adam Armstrong, on his full debut, against Crystal Palace is one which has buoyed the supporters of the club who have had little to celebrate since the opening of the campaign.

The Magpies are still looking for their first league win of the season, but Armstrong's display in the Capital One Cup last night was one of the major reasons behind their progress.

The 17-year-old was handed his first start for the club in their 3-2 extra-time victory over Crystal Palace and he played a starring role in their success.

Armstrong set-up two goals during the contest, including Paul Dummett's late winner, and he will now be hoping that he can make an impact on the first-team on a more regular basis. 

Pardew has already shown the faith that he has in his better youngsters by giving Rolando Aarons his first-chance this season and Armstrong looks likely to be the next to make the step-up.

Newcastle take on Stoke City on Monday night and Armstrong will be hoping that he did enough to convince Pardew he is ready to stay in the Magpies' team for the Premier League match.

Many Newcastle supporters are certainly hoping that he will be able to start and below we compile some of the best reaction on Twitter to the youngster's performance.
