Hero of the weekend
Like Lascelles, Karl Darlow was signed from Nottingham Forest in 2014 and immediately loaned back to the East Midlands club. Back on Tyneside, with two goalkeepers injured, Darlow has endured some pretty tough moments this season. On Saturday, though, he stepped up big time against Crystal Palace. By saving Yohan Cabaye’s penalty, Darlow
may just have earned two life saving points.
