LOIC Remy is the man of the moment at Newcastle but believes he should have scored MORE goals.

The forward has been a revelation so far this season at club level – scoring three goals and setting up two more for Hatem Ben Arfa in his first four appearances.

And Remy’s form saw him recalled by his country for France’s World Cup qualifiers against Macedonia and Belgium.

United’s Moussa Sissoko, Mathieu Debuchy and Yohan Cabaye are also in Didier Deschamps’s squad.

While he has been lauded for his contribution up front, Remy feels he should have scored more goals so far this season.

Remy, on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers, is keen for more goals – and for Newcastle to record a much-needed Premier League win – at Cardiff City this afternoon.

“I feel I’ve been a bit unlucky not to get more,” Remy told SportMail.

“I scored at Everton, and then I had a good situation in front of the goal. I kicked it with my left foot.

“It was the same against Hull, when I missed we missed out on a draw.

“It can happen sometimes, but not all the time, we can change things. We’ll keep working until we’re perfect.”

While United, thanks in part to Remy’s industry and creativity, have carried a greater goal threat, the club has been found wanting defensively in the last two Premier League games.

And Remy insists he and his team-mates are working hard to get the balance right between defence and attack. “From a personal point of view, it’s a good start,” said the 26 year-old.

“But I prefer the team to win and I score goals. I’m a striker, and I know my job, but we must improve.

“There are a lot of games left in the season.”
