Newcastle United made it successive Premier League wins as they beat Swansea City 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday, and Magpies fans were understandably delighted.
Rafa Benitez may have been worried when his side followed up their opening day defeat to Tottenham Hotspur with a 1-0 loss at fellow newly-promoted side Huddersfield Town, but they have since bounced back with two victories and two clean sheets.
Captain Jamaal Lascelles was the hero for the Toon Army in south Wales as his second-half header proved to be the difference between the two clubs, while he and his teammates defended resolutely at the other end of the pitch to keep Paul Clement’s men at bay.
Newcastle supporters were quick to have their say on the performance of their team and another vital three points via social media, and they were keen to praise the players for their togetherness.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
What a proper team performance that was!
