Newcastle matchwinner Ayoze Perez: It's a dream come true!

Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez admits his dreams are coming true on Tyneside.

The second week on the bounce, Perez has proved the Toon's matchwinner, scoring in victory over Liverpool.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "It feels incredible. I couldn't ask for any more. It's been a really good week with the two goals, but more importantly because it's the fourth consecutive win for the team. It has been a really good time for the club.

"The goal at Tottenham was a big thing for me. Getting my first Premier League goal has definitely helped my confidence and also the fact that I've been really involved with the team.

"When you score a goal it helps you to feel that you've proved what you can do.

"It is a dream come true for me. To make the jump from a team like Tenerife to playing in the Premier League is incredible really. It is something that I always wanted to do.

"I am definitely ahead of schedule. I always hoped I could do well but things have been very good and I am feeling great here."
