Newcastle United finally picked up a victory in the Premier League at the 11th time of asking on Saturday, edging past Watford at St. James’ Park.

Ayoze Perez scored the only goal of the game to seal three points that saw the Magpies rise out of the relegation zone, providing a platform to build upon in a crucial run of fixtures over the course of the coming weeks.

Rafael Benitez’s side have struggled to keep their head above water so far this season, although their woes have come in an admittedly tough start to the campaign, and there have been some positive signs for fans to take.

Many took to social media after Saturday’s victory to heap praise on summer signing Federico Fernandez, who contributed a fine defensive performance against Watford to continue what has been a decent start to life at Newcastle.

We have gathered some of the best reactions to his display below.
