‘Liability’: Newcastle star slammed as Magpies let 3 points slip away in Watford showdown

Newcastle United’s fans have flooded to social media on Saturday, to take aim at one member of the club’s squad in ruthless fashion.

ASM the difference

Eddie Howe’s struggling Toon were of course back in action a short time ago.

Amid the club’s efforts to beat the drop, Newcastle welcomed Claudio Ranieri’s Watford to St. James’ Park for a crucial relegation six-pointer, aware that a victory would see them climb, at least temporarily, out of the bottom three.

And, with a full 87 minutes on the clock, the Magpies looked well on their way to precisely that.

This came after a moment of individual brilliance on the part of Allan Saint-Maximin saw the Frenchman cut inside from the left, before firing home at Ben Foster’s near post:

A twist, however, remained in the tale.

With just minutes remaining in the action on Tyneside, Watford bagged what proved to be an all-important equaliser, when Joao Pedro rose highest to direct home a wonderful header:

Newcastle, as a result, remain firmly entrenched in the relegation zone, two points adrift of their opponents this afternoon, despite having played a game more.

‘Liability’

In turn, on the back of the full-time whistle sounding on another damaging day for their side, the Newcastle faithful, altogether predictably, have since been up in arms online.

Owing to the latest in a lengthy stretch of sub-par showings, the likes of Sean Longstaff, Jonjo Shelvey and Ryan Fraser have all come in for major criticism.

None, however, has been more heavily targeted this evening than Jamaal Lascelles, whose failed attempt to challenge Joao Pedro ultimately cost his side two points on Saturday.

Just some of the widespread condemnation directed at the Newcastle captain from across Twitter, in turn, is showcased below:
