Yoshinori Muto happy to prove Newcastle matchwinner

Newcastle United striker Yoshinori Muto was happy to prove the matchwinner against West Ham in China.

The Japan striker netted the winner in Shanghai to beat the Hammers and he is eager to grasp his chance in the Toon frontline.

Muto said: "We showed a great performance and played well. I scored a goal too so I am satisfied.

"We are still not 100%

"So we have to keep working hard.

"We have to improve our condition."

Newcastle ended the Premier League Asia Trophy on a high with the slender win.

Muto told NUFC TV: "I am really happy to score but that is my job.

"Every game I have to try to score."
