Newcastle fans praise strike Callum Wilson for his latest Premier League performance

Newcastle United managed to grind out an impressive 0-0 draw at home to defending champions Liverpool on Wednesday night – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter applauded the contribution of their striker Callum Wilson.

Steve Bruce’s Newcastle put in an excellent performance in their Premier League fixture at St James’ Park, as they managed to take a point from table toppers Liverpool and finished 2020 on a positive note.

The Magpies were asked to do their fair share of defending, with goalkeeper Karl Darlow strengthening his claims for a possible England call-up with his display.

But unlike in previous games this season, Newcastle did look a real offensive threat whenever they had the ball and threatened the Liverpool goal on a couple of occasions.

A selection of Newcastle supporters on social media believe that their centre-forward Wilson was excellent last night.

The 28-year-old is a bullish attacker that asked questions of the Liverpool backline with his physicality, pace and work-rate, as he worked his socks off in the final third of the pitch to try give the defence some respite.

He nearly scored his ninth goal of the Premier League season with an effort from an acute angle, but he was denied by goalkeeper Alisson Becker at the near-post.

Here are some Newcastle fans discussing Wilson:
