Newcastle fans rage at Joelinton performance after Leicester loss

Newcastle United suffered a crushing home defeat to Leicester City on Wednesday – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter took their frustration out on forward Joelinton.

The Magpies were beaten 3-0 by second-placed Leicester in the Premier League fixture at St James’ Park.

Ex-Newcastle attacker Ayoze Perez opened the scoring in the 36th minute for the visitors, before just minutes later James Maddison added a second with a remarkable left-footed rocket into the top corner.

Substitute Hamza Choudhury netted a third late on with another remarkable finish that cannoned in off the crossbar and it was a comprehensive win.

Newcastle were miles off the pace on New Year’s Day and had to play most of the second-half with 10 men following a spate of injuries.

A selection of Newcastle supporters on social media were fuming with Brazilian Joelinton after his latest display.

The 23-year-old striker got very little change out of the Leicester defence and was rarely involved in the contest.

He still has just one goal in 23 appearances since his summer arrival for £40million (BBC) from Hoffenheim.

Here are some Newcastle fans on Joelinton:
