Newcastle United fans loved Lejeune’s performance in Saturday win

Newcastle United are on the verge of securing their safety in the English Premier League after a vital 2-1 win away to Leicester City on Saturday.

Goals from Jonjo Shelvey and Ayoze Perez secured the victory for the Magpies, with Jamie Vardy’s late goal nothing but a consolation for the home side.

Now ten points clear of the relegation zone, Rafa Benitez’s side look to have finally given themselves the buffer they need to ensure they aren’t drawn into last minute drama in the tail-end of the season.

Fans were absolutely overjoyed with the win and performance and beyond the goalscorers paid particular praise to defender Florian Lejeune, who was superb throughout the 90 minutes alongside Jamaal Lascelles.
