‘Million times better than Diame’ – Some Newcastle fans like the look of Ki

Newcastle United claimed their first victory of the season on Saturday and moved out of the relegation zone.

Ayoze Perez scored the only goal of the game as Newcastle beat Watford 1-0 at St James’ Park.

And it was three substitutions which turned the game around for the Magpies.

Fabian Schar was introduced at half-time and he produced a special display at the back to keep Watford quiet.

And then the other two subs combined to score the winner. Ki Sung-yeung provided the ball into the box and Perez netted with a header.

It was only Ki’s fourth appearance of the season in the Premier League since his summer move from Swansea.

But the South Korea international was highly impressive and staked a claim for a regular spot.

Replacing Jonjo Shelvey, who took a knock, Ki controlled the game with some excellent passing and intent to move the ball forwards.

His dead-ball deliveries were also tricky for Watford to deal with and that proved decisive in the end.

Newcastle fans were very impressed by the 29-year-old. Here is what they said about Ki’s performance on Saturday.
