Video: Former Newcastle star Hatem Ben Arfa continues stunning form with another great goal for Nice

Hatem Ben Arfa finally appears to be fulfilling the potential he showed as a youngster.

The 28-year-old only showed occasional flashes of brilliance during his five-year spell at Newcastle, but has been in outstanding form since returning to France to join Nice.

He has already become renowed for scoring wonder goals at his new club, and netted another brilliant strike at the weekend in the 4-1 win over Rennes.

It was Ben Arfa’s fifth goal in just three games and his seventh of the season – making him the joint top scorer in Ligue 1.
