It was not too hard of a selection for Newcastle’s best player at Aston Villa on Monday. There were only a handful of players who put in notable performances.
Martin Dubravka was in fine form and made some crucial saves. Allan Saint-Maximin tried his best to create some in attack even if nothing really came off for the Frenchman. Jetro Willems also got forward while playing solid defensively.
That is far too little to to witness on a Monday night especially for the travelling fans. The lads just didn’t put it together and it feels like we’ve regressed since the win against Bournemouth.
However, Martin Dubravka does deserve some praise for keeping Newcastle in the game. The 30-year-old made some crucial stops on Ezri Konza and Wesley.
