Swansea fans praise display from on-loan Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman

With Karl Darlow and Martin Dubravka fighting over the number one position at St James’ Park, Newcastle United decided to send goalkeeper Freddie Woodman out on yet another loan this season.

The 23-year-old rejoined Championship club Swansea in the summer on a season-long loan, after spending the 2019/20 campaign at the Liberty Stadium as well.

He’s been in superb individual form this season with 15 clean sheets in 26 league games, as Swansea chase automatic promotion from the Championship.

Woodman retained his position in goal on Wednesdays night, as Swansea hosted Premier League leaders Manchester City in the FA Cup fifth round.

Man City recorded their 15th consecutive domestic victory by winning with a 3-1 scoreline.

Woodman may have felt he could’ve done better with Kyle Walker’s opening goal, which was a cross from long distance that ended up deceiving everyone and finding the bottom of the net.

But the English shot-stopper couldn’t do much about the other two goals from Man City, who look irresistible right now.

A selection of Swansea supporters on social media credited Woodman despite the team’s loss.

The 6ft 2in goalkeeper made a couple of strong reflex saves to keep the scoreline down and he’s a young player that is developing massively during the past 18 months.

Here are some Swansea fans discussing Woodman:
