Newcastle moved out of the relegation zone at the weekend as they held Watford to a 1-1 draw at St. James’ Park.

Watford took the lead in the second minute as Will Hughes converted from close range after some poor defending from Newcastle early on.

Centre-back Fabian Schar then secured a point for the Toon as he finished well from inside the box just before half-time.

One player who impressed, though, was left-back Jetro Willems as he caught the eye down the flank.

Some may have feared the worst after Matt Ritchie was ruled out for around two months with a knee injury, but Willems stepped up and made a claim for his place in the side with a strong performance against Watford.

He was constantly looking to bomb down the line and get crosses in to test the Watford defence, whilst also being solid at the back – preventing Javi Gracia’s side from creating chances down their right.

Were you impressed with Willems?
