Elliot was outstanding against Tottenham at the weekend.

Newcastle’s disastrous start to the season has been made to look slightly better with successive wins against Liverpool and Tottenham, meaning they are now two points clear of the relegation zone.

Next up for Steve McClaren’s men is a vital home match against bottom of the table Aston Villa, before they also host Everton and travel to West Brom.

One of the Toon’s key players in their last victories was goalkeeper Rob Elliot, who made two outstanding saves at White Hart Lane, and his performances between the sticks could be vital with United seemingly having few problems going forward at the current moment.
