‘Different gravy’: Newcastle fans hail Salomon Rondon

Salomon Rondon was the match-winner in the win over Bournemouth at the weekend – and some of the Newcastle United fans on Twitter waxed lyrical about his impact on the game.

The 29-year-old striker scored twice in the first-half to help the Magpies end up as 2-1 victors at home to an in-form Bournemouth team.

He is currently on a loan deal at St James’ Park from West Brom and managed to net his first Premier League goals since his link up with Rafael Benitez’s side.

The Venezuelan centre-forward has seen his campaign disrupted by injuries so far, but will be hoping that his bad luck is behind him and he can get an extended run in the side.

Rondon previously showed at West Brom he can score goals in the top flight and is the man tasked with helping Newcastle steer clear of a relegation fight.

The powerhouse is a real threat in the air and his brilliant header from a Kenedy cross against Bournemouth is something fans could get used to seeing.

A selection of Newcastle fans on social media were full of praise for Rondon for his work-rate in attack and believe he can be a consistent goalscorer for them.

Here are some of the Newcastle tweets raving about their centre-forward for his display:
