'Immense', 'Best player on the pitch' – Newcastle fans drool over one player despite loss v Everton

Newcastle’s impressive run of four straight Premier League wins came to a halt on a dreary Monday night at Goodison Park.

Everton ran out 1-0 winners in a really poor game after a Theo Walcott goal in the 51st minute, but Newcastle fans got some consolation on the night from the display of 26-year-old Florian Lejeune.

The enforcer put in a brilliant no-nonsense performance and Newcastle fans flocked to Twitter to sing his praises.

One fan said that he was the best player on the pitch, while another said he’d been class for a while and was “class again today”.

Here are the best reactions from Newcastle fans to Lejeune:

Despite the loss, Newcastle sit in 10th place in the Premier League with four games to play.

They’re three points ahead of Bournemouth in 11th, who have played one more game, and it looks like Rafa Benitez has over-performed with the squad he has got.

All worries of relegation have disappeared after the four wins in a row and Newcastle fans are looking forward to bagging new recruits in the summer.
