Fighting talk from Perez following Newcastle United draw

Ayoze Perez has faced criticism from Newcastle United fans this season, with some accusing the forward of not delivering.

So far this season, the Spaniard has scored just one goal and provided a single assist in 13 Premier League appearances, 11 of which have been from the starting spot.

On Tuesday night, Rafael Benitez’s side were involved in a dramatic clash at The Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion.

The visiting team suffered a 2-0 deficit, with goals being scored on either side of half time.

Newcastle managed to unleash a comeback, though, as Ciaran Clark gave the team hope with a goal before the hour mark.

The Magpies kept pushing for another goal and it eventually came, but from an unlikely scorer – Jonny Evans put the ball into his own net.

The 2-2 draw means that Newcastle avoided a fifth consecutive defeat, but they are only five points above the relegation zone.

After the match, Perez, who played the full 90 minutes, took to Twitter to rally the troops.
