Hatem Ben Arfa is by far and away Newcastle United’s best player at the moment and he gives the best interviews as well!
If Ben Arfa scored a magnificent goal against Fulham without giving an all-round performance, then yesterday he put that right at Villa Park.
Against Aston Villa Ben Arfa was unplayable, running at Antonio Luna all day and giving the left back all sorts of problems.
Hatem got himself into the box to score Newcastle’s opener and then forced Brad Guzan to parry his shot from outside the area and allow Yoan Gouffran to score the winner.
Not only does Ben Arfa give great performances, but he gives great interviews too, and has gone a bit R Kelly ‘I believe I can fly’ here…
(Click here if you can’t see the video – you might need to turn the volume up).
Ben Arfa is flying right now and the Newcastle fans are shouting ‘go, go, go’ because he terrorises defences and is exciting to watch.
Let’s hope he can keep this form going against Hull City at St James’ Park next week so we get treated to another interview!
