Newcastle United supporters have continued to heap praise on Aleksandar Mitrovic, after he played a starring role in helping them fight back against Manchester United last night.
In what was a pulsating encounter at St. James’ Park, Newcastle went toe-to-toe with Louis Van Gaal’s side, and played out a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Both sides have struggled for goals this season, but their attacking quality stood out yesterday.
Mitrovic was the man selected to lead the line for Newcastle, and he did an excellent job at roughing United’s defence up.
The Serbian’s power was a threat all night, and he tucked home a penalty during the contest to ensure his name was on the scoresheet, before kicking an advertising hoarding in celebration.
That was Mitrovic’s fourth goal for the Magpies, and many of their supporters are hoping it will give him the confidence to push on.
The 21-year-old has won the fans over at Newcastle due to his passion, but he does need to start scoring more often if he is to fire Newcastle up the table.
Here is the best reaction from Newcastle fans on social media site Twitter to Mitrovic’s performance against the Red Devils.
