Newcastle fans hail Martin Dubravka for his display in Leicester win
Newcastle United picked up a superb win over Leicester City on Friday night – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter were raving about the performance of their goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.
Steve Bruce’s side are all-but in the Premier League for another season after they won away at Leicester 4-2 in a thriller at the King Power Stadium.
The Magpies are 12 points above the drop zone now, and in reality can start preparing for next year in the top flight.
In-form Joe Willock and defender Paul Dummett both scored in the opening 45 minutes to give visitors Newcastle a two-goal lead.
As Leicester pressed to get back into the game, Toon forward Callum Wilson netted twice in the second period to put his side 4-0 ahead.
Despite a few scary moments late on following goals from Marc Albrighton and Kelechi Iheanacho, Newcastle deservedly earned three points.
A selection of Newcastle supporters on social media named Dubravka as a massive standout performer tonight though despite all the goals at the other end of the pitch.
He made a few excellent saves during the first half to ensure his team went in ahead at half time.
The 32-year-old shot-stopper also came up with a breathtaking save from Ayoze Perez in the closing stages when Leicester pushed to try force a comeback, and one excited supporter joked he needs a statue next to club legend Alan Shearer.
Here are some Newcastle fans hailing their goalkeeper:

Dubravka is one of the best keepers in the league, only Ederson is better. Shocked a big team has not come in for him #NUFC

Dubravka was immense again. Glad Wilson is amongst the goals, and a superb Willock goal. Starting the weekend on a high #nufc
