Christian Atsu had 62 minutes of action at the Molineux on Saturday as Newcastle United drew 1-1 with Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League.

The 28-year old was among the starters in the FA Cup third round draw with Rochdale last weekend, providing the assist for Miguel Almiron.

This time he started from the bench but came on in the 27th minute for the injured Dwight Gayle.

All the goals in this tie had already been scored before Atsu was introduced, Almiron giving the Magpies the lead in the seventh minute before Leander Dendoncker equalised for Wolves seven minutes later.

Atsu was given a yellow card for a foul in the 67th minute, his second of the season, and had 23 touches on the ball and five accurate passes (71%).

Steve Bruce’s men remain in 13th position on the table and will be up against Chelsea at St James’ Park next Saturday.
