Newcastle fans bash Benitez decision to play Perez

Loads of Newcastle fans have been giving their verdict on the defeat to Leicester, and they can’t believe Rafael Benitez is still starting Ayoze Perez.

Newcastle have now picked up just two points form their first seven games after yet another home defeat.

The Magpies had an absolutely brutal fixture list to open the season, but matches against Crystal Palace and Leicester were surely ones they should be taking some points from.

Jamie Vardy gave the Foxes a first half lead from the penalty spot though, and Harry Maguire doubled the lead after the break.

Not many Newcastle players will be happy with their performance, but Perez in particular had an afternoon to forget.

The 25 year-old was superb in the second half of last season, scoring eight times and grabbing five assists, but fans are fuming at his performances so far this season.

Last season’s hero managed just one shot, completed no dribbles and created zero chances.
