Newcastle midfielder Cabaye: Ben Arfa now showing his true self

Yohan Cabaye is delighted Hatem Ben Arfa is now producing his best for Newcastle United.

Ben Arfa scored a wonder goal in victory over Bolton Wanderers.

Cabaye said: "That was the real Hatem Ben Arfa and fortunately he is playing with us.

"He is in our squad and he is a different-class player. He works hard every day for that, to be fit for us, and he has the national team as a target as well.

"There are still five games and if he plays like that in the last five games, I think he has a big chance to get into the squad."
