Chelsea loanee Christian Atsu netted a brilliant goal to help Newcastle United defeat Rotherham on Saturday. The Ghana international cut in from the left, breezing past full-back Darnell Fisher, and then bent the ball in to the far side of the goal to give the Magpies a 1-0 victory over their opposition.
The win takes Rafael Bentiez’s side to third in the Championship, with 22 points from their 11 matches. They are three points behind league leaders Huddersfield.
