Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka has been a small revelation following his arrival at the club on a permanent deal last summer but it’s not unfair to say his performance against Burnley on Monday evening was uncharacteristic for the 29-year-old.

Having made 12 appearances during the second half of last campaign following his loan spell in January from Sparta Prague, the Slovakian stopper has already made the No 1 spot his own and made 13 appearances in the campaign of 2018/19 for manager Rafa Benitez and he has been a source of optimism during our early season struggles.

He was undoubtedly at fault for Sam Vokes’ goal last night though as he strayed too far from his line and got caught out but we did hold on to take a 2-1 victory with an own goal from Ben Mee and a Ciaran Clark effort, so in the moment or not, some of these reactions on social media are a little harsh to say the least.

An obvious error but plenty of fans also argued the point that one game doesn’t make a season given his efforts so far.
