Ghanaian attacker Christian Atsu played a cameo role for Newcastle United on Sunday evening when they recorded a 1-0 victory against Manchester United in the English Premier League.
The winger has enjoyed starting roles in the last 3 matches of the club but started from the bench yesterday following the return of summer signing Allan Saint-Maximin.
In the match week 8 fixture before the second international break of the season, the Magpies showed great resilience and recorded a vital win at the St. James' Park.
Jetro Willems assisted Matthew Longstaff for the only goal of the game which handed Steve Bruce and his charges all 3 points at the end of a very nervy encounter.
Christian Atsu replaced Allan Saint-Maximin on the 83rd minute and helped his side to hold on to their lead for the remaining minutes of the match.
The Ghanaian is expected to be key for Newcastle United throughout the campaign in their quest to maintain their English Premier League status at the end of the season.
