Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to their trip to Brighton, as the Magpies drew 1-1 without record signing Miguel Almiron.
Yoshinori Muto and Kenedy were both in the running to take Almiron’s place after the Paraguayan’s hamstring injury ruled him out for the rest of the season, but it was actually Christian Atsu who got the nod on the left wing.
Kenedy didn’t have to wait long to get his chance though, replacing Ayoze Perez after half an hour, who also picked up an injury.

Perez had opened the scoring with a powerful strike, lashing one into the roof of the net after a superb knockdown by Salomon Rondon.
And despite the Magpies controlling the early parts of the game, they lost their end product after the Spaniard went off, and fans are crucifying the performance of Kenedy.
The Chelsea loanee has been a shadow of the player that helped turned the Toon’s season around last year, and he was wasteful again on Saturday evening.

Just send him back now and give some of the U23 minutes

Kennedy has been abysmal all season so why even name him in the squad let alone bring him on. Muto should’ve came on. I turned it off then.
