Newcastle stalwart explains how Benitez led Magpies to win over Man United

Newcastle stalwart explains how Benitez led Magpies to win over Man United

The Northern Echo claim on their website that the Magpies secured the seven-figure deal with the Foxes during the January transfer window, arriving at St James' Park with 13 matches left to play before the end of the season.

Dubravka could prove to be a fan favourite in Newcastle if he can maintain the same level of performances throughout the rest of the season, with the 29-year-old offering the Magpies a real chance of maintaining their Premier League status next season.

'I said it before the game, I say it even more after the game, Paul Pogba today - I don't know whether he was injured or not - he looked well off it, and they do look like a team that play 5% below the intensity that they can play at, that they should play at.

The Slovakia global goalkeeper made his Magpies debut in Sunday's 1-0 win against Manchester United and is already verging on cult hero status.

Yet they responded with a gritty display, riding their luck at times to take the points courtesy of Matt Ritchie's 65th-minute victor which propelled them from 18th to 13th. With the bigger teams, teams like us will always want it a lot more and their quality wasn't enough to beat us.

"This was a brilliant win, but it remains incredibly tight at the bottom of the table and there is a lot more work to do".

Newcastle United have already paid £1.5 million for the goalkeeper in loan fee, but another 3.5 million won't be a bad investment considering how well he performed against the Old Trafford outfit.

And that run extended to seven matches after Matt Ritchie stunned the visitors with a 65th-minute victor.

"It would have been a tough fortnight if we hadn't have won". "Going into the next two weeks we'd have been in the relegation zone and we'd be a bit upset".

"We did it most of the time, and at the end we got that goal and we defended as a team".

"Were they lucky? Yes, they were". But sometimes you deserve that luck. "After the 1-0, the Newcastle players fought for their lives, and that is a handsome thing in football".
