It was a bad afternoon for Newcastle against Leicester, but one Toon player can hold his head high – Martin Dubravka.

Had it not been for the Slovakian, we could have lost by much more than three. And he had no chance with any of the goals. Florian Lejeune handed Ayoze Perez a goal, while James Maddison and Hamza Choudoury’s strikes were world class.

But throughout the afternoon Dubravka was on hand to make some stunning saves. While individual errors and injuries resigned Newcastle to a heavy defeat, the goalkeeper certainly didn’t give up.

It’s been said time and time again, but what a signing he’s been. While some errors have crept into his game, some of the saves Dubravka makes are sensational. He’s rescued us so many times this season, with no keeper in the Premier League making more saves than him.

The Magpies have 25 points so far this season, and it’s fair to say Dubravka has played a massive role in winning most of them. On a bad day for the Toon, some fans took time to rightfully praise the number one.
