These Were Newcastle’s Best Two Players Against Manchester City

It’s not surprising that we have two defenders at the top of our poll for the game on Wednesday night against runaway league leaders Manchester City.

We lost 1-0 and our lads put in a solid defensive display against one of the best teams we have ever seen in the Premier League.

After 20 games played they have 58 points having won every game but one – and they drew that game 1-1 at home to Everton back in August.

If we could pick 5 players from City to join Newcastle (yes it’s all hypothetical – but at least we can think about it), we would be challenging for the Premier League title this year.

Rob Elliot – our Man of the Match

Rob Elliot had a good game, and he tops our poll.

We need Rob to be in the form he was in two years ago and maybe he is coming into that level of performance now.

Rob got 27% of the vote.

Since Jamaal Lascelles has come back into the side, Newcastle have tightened up significantly at the back and Jamaal is a key player for Newcastle.

Jamaal had a good game in front of the England manager Gareth Southgate and was second in our poll with 19%.

    I’m nervous for Brighton. First real 6 pointer of the season for me, quickly followed by the second against Stoke. With those and I think with a few decent additions and we will be safe. Fail to do so and I think we will be heading down failing some miraculous recovery re Leicester, but I don’t see that happening.

    Catchy it should have been dead and buried like when they smashed Liverpool or destroyed spurs. I guess it’s ok though as they had a go it wouldn’t have mattered if our goal difference would have took a beating I guess. Sounds good NOT!!

    Nobody is disputing the 10m signing of the French kid I agree we need better to pull us out the relegation battle.
