Hatem Ben Arfa has done some amazing things in the Black and White jersey of Newcastle this season. From running more than half of the pitch to score a wonder goal, to going past three, four, five players at will.
No one can doubt that he’s a special talent and for us at NUFCfans.co.uk, he is the best dribbler in the Premier League.
Ben Arfa is the complete winger, a magician on the ball and a defender’s nightmare. Right now, he is playing a pivotal part in guiding Newcastle to what might be Champions League qualification.
His close control is immaculate, his finishing is clinical and the dazzling skills make him a match-winner. Hatem has left fans speechless and in disbelief at some of the thing he has done with the ball.
In yesterday’s win against Stoke, he beat Marc Wilson to play his part in the first goal. Yet, a moment of superb skill deserves attention and you’ll soon know why.
Cheick Tiote picks the ball up on the left side, in his own half and plays a cross field ball to Ben Arfa. What follows is sublime control from the French wizard. Hatem traps the ball on the wet surface and makes it look so easy. It’s magical and I can watch it over and over again.
