‘Brings absolutely nothing to the team’: Some Newcastle fans hammering one player tonight

Some Newcastle United have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Joelinton against Manchester City.

Joelinton was in action for Newcastle in their Premier League game against City away from home at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening.

The 23-year-old forward started the match and played for 66 minutes, as Steve Bruce’s side suffered a heavy 5-0 defeat.

The Brazilian has struggled for goals this season, and youngster failed to do much of note in or around the City penalty box.

According to WhoScored, the forward took one shot which was not on target, had a pass accuracy of 92.3%, won one header, took 28 touches, attempted one dribble, and made two tackles and two clearances.

So far this season, the Brazilian has made 31 starts and two substitute appearances in the Premier League for the Magpies, scoring two goals and providing two assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

Joelinton has also played six FA Cup ties for Bruce’s team this campaign, scoring two goals in the process, according to WhoScored.

Some Newcastle fans were not impressed with Joelinton’s performance against City and have criticised him on Twitter, although one or two have shown their support for the forward.
