Newcastle fans were delighted with Aleksandar Mitrovic's performance against Norwich City.
Four goals from midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum gave the Magpies the platform to build on, whilst Ayoze Perez and Aleksandar Mitrovic also found the net in a stunning victory.
Playmaker Wijnaldum unsurprisingly stole the show with his four goals, but striker Mitrovic also impressed in a superb Newcastle performance.
The Serbian international striker, who arrived from Anderlecht this summer, got off to an inauspicious start, with yellow and red cards overshadowing his start to life in the Premier League.
Now, Mitrovic is firing, and his performance - coupled with his goal - earned rave reviews from Newcastle fans on Twitter after Sunday's game.
Supporters took to social media to compare Mitrovic to Newcastle legend Alan Shearer as well as former Magpies star Demba Ba, two players have been recent fan favourites at St. James' Park.
It now looks like Mitrovic will also become something of a cult hero on Tyneside, with fans lauding his performance - even though Wijnaldum hit four goals.
Here are some of the reactions from Newcastle fans on Twitter following Mitrovic's performance against Norwich City...
While Gini was outstanding, huge credit has to go to Mitrovic. Herculean effort upfront, never looked close to a booking either. #NUFC— This Dave (@ThisDave) October 18, 2015
Still believe that Mitrovic is Key. When he plays #Nufc are are much more dangerous team. Going to be a Geordie hero— RunFatBoyRun (@waynebarrigan) October 18, 2015
Mitrovic seems to have the type of work rate, heart & character that potential legends are made of. Love it! #nufc— Kind of a big deal (@grahamcrosby) October 18, 2015
