Ex-Newcastle United star Joselu scores wonder goal as he continues brilliant La Liga form

Former Newcastle United striker Joselu was on hand with a wonder goal for Espanyol in their 2-1 win over La Liga rivals Getafe. The ex-Magpies forward opened the scoring with a brilliant solo goal from just inside the opposition half, lobbing David Soria.

Espanyol's joy was short lived with Enes Unal equalising a minute later for Getafe, with Javi Puado sealing the three points in the second-half. The goal takes Joselu onto ten for the season in La Liga, from just 17 appearances, lifting Espanyol up to 14th in the table.
