DeAndre Yedlin is certainly making a name for himself as Newcastle United looks to regain its form in the second half of the long Championship season.
The win against Derby wasn’t an easy one. They tested the Newcastle United defense, and lucky enough for the magpies, DeAndre Yedlin pulled through. With Matt Ritchie’s 27th minute goal, Newcastle United fought for the rest of the 90 minutes defending their way to victory. And a lot of that has to do with Yedlin’s star-studded performance.
Fans have been reacting positively to the player’s performances, and he has been a strong presence in an otherwise inexperienced defensive lineup. Newcastle United fans are loving Yedlin, and Yedlin is giving back the love with tough performances that are going to help lead Newcastle United to promotion back to where they belong.

After all, that’s what this is all about. That’s why DeAndre Yedlin was signed in the first place. To help the club fight for promotion back to the Premier League. If the Seattle native can keep this up, then promotion is an easy sight on the horizon.
Going forward, DeAndre Yedlin is proving capable, and his leadership in the back line is proving valuable to a defense that desperately needs it. While Jamaal Lascelles is doing a fine job, the leadership in the squad needs to get better.
Is Yedlin the best right-back that Newcastle United has right now? Absolutely. Is he one of the best of all time? No. But he certainly is one of the best we’ve had in decades.
