Journalist Lee Ryder has praised Newcastle United defender Sven Botman for the ‘masterclass’ display he put in during his club’s most recent outing.
After such a long break without Premier League football, Eddie Howe’s men returned to action in impressive fashion, picking up all three points in a dominant win.
A penalty from Chris Wood and then a fine effort from Miguel Almiron put Newcastle two goals after just seven minutes before Joelinton later headed in a third from a corner.
Unsurprisingly, a number of players impressed during the match, but it seems as though Botman stood out after Ryder handed him a 9/10 in the player ratings for ChronicleLive.
He also wrote: “Absolutely bossing it. One swept clear off the line and refused to give Leicester an inch. A Dutch defensive masterclass.”
