Rob Elliot showed all the fight and passion you expect from a Newcastle players last night and the 29 year-old was again our Man of the Match as he had another excellent game as his star continues to rise both at Newcastle and in the Premier League.
But for Rob, who made a number of inspired saves last night, the score could have been a lot worse than 3-0 – although 3-0 was bad enough – especially when out goal difference is so poor.
Rob Elliot great save in second half
Rob deserves enormous credit that he kept his concentration and form in another excellent display in the Newcastle goal, as those around him really struggled.
Second in the voting was new boy Henri Saivet who looked good in the first half and added some skill and energy to Newcastle’s midfield – but then he was replaced for tactical reasons early in the second half.
It was a promising display from the newcomer.
