Newcastle United failed to build on their victory over Hull City when they took on Stoke City at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Sunday.
John Carver’s side headed into the clash on the back of a 3-0 win against the Tigers at the KC Stadium and were full of confidence.
However, Newcastle had to settle for a 1-1 draw against an ambitious Stoke team who are pushing to finish in the top half of the Premier League table this season.
The game at St. James’ Park was largely uneventful until the 74th minute when Jack Colback scored a stunner, but Peter Crouch broke the hearts of the Newcastle fans when he restored parity in the final minutes.
One of the Newcastle players who played well against Stoke was Remy Cabella, who continued his recent run of good form.
The France international has been playing superbly in recent weeks, and he continued to do so this weekend.
The 24-year-old was full of flair and trickery, looked creative, put in crosses and went for goal himself in what was an all-around performance.
Cabella ended the game with stats of one shot, 81% pass accuracy, one chance created, five crosses and five dribbles.
After the match, Newcastle fans took to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the performance of Cabella.
