The defense played well yesterday at Selhurst Park, and we got our second clean sheet in the first 6 league games.
The other one was at Cardiff City.
Federico Fernandez has come straight into the side, and he is in top form at the moment partnering with captain Jamal Lascelles in the heart of the Newcastle defense.
He’s our Man of the Match for yesterday’s game.
Federico played 117 Premier League games for Swansea over four seasons, and he’s been a great addition to the Newcastle side.
If the 6ft 3ins defender keeps playing like this we expect him to get a recall to the Argentina squad – he already has 32 caps for his country and has played a season with Rafa while at Napoli.
He has 62% of the vote followed by Martin Dubravka and Jamaal Lascelles who also had strong games yesterday.
Last Saturday at home to Arsenal, Fernandez was also our Man of the Match with 49% of the vote.
He’s worth £6M of anybody’s money and his experience in the Premier League this season will be invaluable.
