Newcastle fans praise Isaac Hayden’s performance in victory over Southampton

The midfielder said the win was not his best game.

Newcastle came from behind to beat Southampton 2-1 yesterday and propelled themselves into the top half of the Premier League.

A third goal in three matches for Jonjo Shelvey cancelled out Danny Ings’ opener before Federico Fernandez won the match for Steve Bruce’s side.

That result takes them up to tenth and alleviates some of the relegation pressure around the club for the time being; the Saints would have overtaken their hosts with a win yesterday.

It also makes it seven points from a three-game week for the Magpies and Bruce needs to try and build on that momentum over the festive period.

Midfielder Isaac Hayden took to Twitter after the match to criticise his own performance, admitting it wasn’t his best display for the club.

But many supporters were keen to praise the English midfielder, with some suggesting that Gareth Southgate should be watching his performances with interest ahead of the summer’s European Championship.

They love his commitment to the shirt in every game and in matches like yesterday’s which were a tad low on quality, that desire can be enough to get the job done.
