One player that went under the radar during Newcastle’s shopping spree in France was Yoan Gouffran, who is now a crucial part of the side. He has made the left wing position his own keeping Hatem Ben Arfa and Jonas Gutierrez on the sidelines which is no mean feat. The former Bordeaux player has scored six goals and assisted two this season, which is very impressive. He also works incredibly hard defensively which has made him a real hit with the Toon Army. The indications from France were that Gouffran was a lazy striker, but he has proved that wrong and proved himself as a hard working winger. His chance conversion rate (32%) is actually better than Loic Remy’s (26%) which is incredible given the praise his team-mate has received this season.
