Paul Dummett has been in good form for the last couple of months, and he put in another solid performance yesterday at Anfield.
And the local lad easily wins our Man of the Match poll this week with 40% of the vote.
The two center-backs Lejeune (14%) and Lascelles (13%) are next in line.
So three of Newcastle’s back four yesterday were our best players.
Paul Dummett – in training
The defense played well yesterday, but two mistakes still led to the two Liverpool goals.
And with Brighton beating an out-of-form Arsenal side 2-1 at home this afternoon, the south coast side managed by Chris Hughton have now gone into 10th place in the league and 5 points above Newcastle.
Let’s hope Crystal Palace don’t beat Manchester United at home tomorrow night.
