Despite his blistering start to the 2019/2020 season, Christian Atsu insists Newcastle United fans are yet to see his best form.

The Ghanaian winger who is in third year at St. James' Park, believes his body hasn't been 100 per cent.

"The biggest thing for me this season is to be consistent. I have had some good performances with Newcastle, but I know that I need to start being more consistent and keeping my standards at the same level right through the season.

"That's probably what has held me back in my time at Newcastle so far – I haven't been consistent enough – and I'm working as hard as I can to try to improve that.

"I think this is going to be an important season for me. I have been here for four years now.

"I've had some good times and played some good games, but I still don't really think people have been able to see the best of me, certainly not on a consistent basis."
