Ben Davies has scored three goals in 125 Premier League matches for us but, at one stage, he'd scored two in two - including the clincher at St James' Park on the first day of the 2017/18 season.
The Welsh international followed up a goal in the 7-1 win at Hull City on the final day of the 2016/17 season by making it 2-0 in the August sun on Tyneside. Darting in from the left, he was in the right place at the right time to bury from close range - with his right foot! He later described it as 'a bit of a swinger, but they all count'.
After a goalless first half, Dele opened the scoring on the hour, with Ben's goal securing victory 10 minutes later. Kyle Walker-Peters marked his debut by being awarded Man of the Match.
