Newcastle United striker Joselu says he is pleased with his current form after the first four games of the campaign. The Spaniard scored just four goals last season and some fans claimed they would be happy to see him leave.
Joselu stayed put and he has made a solid start to the new season, scoring two goals inside the first four games.
The 28-year-old has been unable to help his team win this season but he admits he is flying ahead of the game against Arsenal.
He told The Chronicle: “Of course I felt I needed to start well. We lost players and we had to sign players as well – and I think we signed players because the gaffer wants what is best for the club.
“I think the players who have come in have tried to help us as soon as they can, and that’s a good point for Newcastle. We will try to stay in the best position like last season, but we know how difficult it is. I think we have a good squad and we’ll try to do that.
“Personally, it was very good [to score in the opening game] because for a striker to start the competition by scoring goals, it is very important.
“People want the strikers to score goals; we do more things than only score, but I think personally for me it was very important.”
