Newcastle fans praise Federico Fernandez for Bournemouth display

Federico Fernandez completed 90 minutes in the win over Bournemouth on Saturday – and some Newcastle United fans on Twitter were blown away by their performance of their defender.

The Magpies recorded a 2-1 victory at St James’ Park in the Premier League fixture and had to come back from a goal down.

Bournemouth took the lead in the 14th minute when Welshman Harry Wilson opened the scoring.

But Newcastle scored either side of half-time through DeAndre Yedlin and then Ciaran Clark to turn the game on its head to earn three points.

Steve Bruce’s team have now picked up seven points from their last three league fixtures and go into the international break in top form.

They currently sit 11th in the table and have a seven-point cushion over the relegation places.

A selection of Newcastle supporters on social media singled out Fernandez as someone that was excellent against Bournemouth.

The experienced 30-year-old centre-back put his body on the line with a number of top blocks in the victory and was a real leader in the backline.

There is a lot of competition for places in the Newcastle defence and he’s not been a regular this season, but has now started three consecutive matches and has been integral in the team’s form.

Here are some Newcastle fans on Fernandez:
