Newcastle United missed the chance to rise to sixth in the Premier League standings last night as the Magpies narrowly lost to fellow high-fliers Burnley at Turf Moor, bringing an end to the club’s three-match unbeaten run.

The performance from Newcastle left a lot to be desired, as it was clear Rafael Benitez’s side lacked the cutting edge required to carve through Burnley’s organised defensive line, but there was certainly positives for the travelling supporters.

Newcastle were hardly outplayed by their opponents and fans were left impressed by the performance of summer signing Florian Lejeune, who once again partnered captain Jamaal Lascelles in the heart of the defence- suggesting that this is the duo that Newcastle have been looking for.

Fans took to social media after last night’s game to praise the Frenchman, who has been in decent form recently, and it’s becoming clear that the signing was another piece of magic from Spanish boss Rafael Benitez.
