Alan Shearer believes Joelinton played his “best game” against Tottenham on Sunday. Day 2 matches.
Joelinton isn’t known for his goalscoring antics lately, but the Brazilian striker did manage to score against Tottenham.
The goal was only his second in the Premier League so far this season.
The 26-year-old also has two league assists and two League Cup goals.
However, Alan Shearer now believes that Joelinton’s performance against Jose Mourinho’s side has “set the standard”.
Speaking of Day 2, Shearer had a lot to say about Joelinton’s performance against Tottenham:
“Very like a lot of people in the team, he’s setting a standard now and he has to stay the same.
“Because I think it was his best game today in a black and white shirt.
“He went in, he scored, should have scored a few more.
“But I think it was a good all-around performance.”

How did Joelinton fare against Tottenham?
striker has three shots In total but only two managed to hit the target.
One of them did end up behind the net, so Joelinton had a pretty decent shot against north London.
By contrast, Harry Kane had four shots on target and scored twice against the Magpies.
Despite his size and stature, Joelinton has won just two aerial duels, four fewer than Joe Roden, who leads with six.
However, these performances need to come from more Brazilians.
Because a striker who can only score two goals in 24 Premier League games is of little use to any team.
