It’s hard to draw too many positives from what has been a poor start to the 2018 / 2019 season; after all, we’ve collected just two points and sit third from bottom in the Premier League.
Furthermore, we’ve yet to witness a victory since the season started.
But, if we’re looking to take one positive from the 0-0 draw away to Crystal Palace it has to be the superb form of our Argentine centre-back, Federico Fernandez.
Rafael Benitez, who had the player under his wing when both were at Napoli, certainly knew what the player could bring to the club when he signed him from Swansea City in the summer transfer window.
In fact, Fernandez superb form has been acknowledged on social media with the Newcastle United support leaving several posts admiring his skills after the player left hi sown comment of thanks on Twitter:

I think it’s fair to say that the form of Fernandez has gotten a thumbs-up from everyone.
