Most Newcastle United fans very impressed with Yoshinori Muto display

The Japanese striker had a great game in his first Premier League start for Newcastle United.

Newcastle United looked to be on the verge of a great result against Manchester United yesterday. The Toon were 2-0 up in the 69th minute after a devastating opening ten minutes at Old Trafford. However, a Juan Mata free-kick started a comeback which eventually led to a 3-2 Red Devils win.

Newcastle can take plenty of positives away from the game. There were some brilliant individual displays throughout the game, including that of Yoshinori Muto.

The Japanese international scored his first goal since making a £9.5 million move from Bundesliga side Mainz.

It was also his first Premier League start, something Newcastle fans have been wanting for some time.

The 26-year-old worked tirelessly throughout the game chasing balls into channels and harassing a fragile looking Manchester United defence.

But unlike the near-equally as industrious Joselu, the Japanese star looks far more of a goal threat and Newcastle certainly missed him when he left the field nursing a minor ankle injury.

Newcastle fans were certainly won over. After the international break, there is no doubt who the Toon Army want to see leading the line for the club.

Here is some of the best reaction to his display…
