Newcastle United fans react to Ayoze Perez’s performance against Watford

Newcastle United secured their first win of the Premier League campaign so far with a hard fought victory over in-form Watford at St James’ Park. Substitute Ayoze Perez’s 65th minute header beat Ben Foster and proved enough to earn the Magpies a 1-0 win and lift them off the bottom of the league table.

Perez began the game on the bench after a string of poor performances. Some boos could even be heard coming from the home fans when Rafa Benitez introduced the 25-year-old Spaniard onto the pitch.

In the celebrations after his goal Perez put his finger in his ears, likely in reference to the booing that accompanied his entrance. 

Despite his apparent unpopularity with the Newcastle fans though, the St James’ faithful will be delighted with his match-winning contribution and ecstatic to see their side finally get three points on the board.

After the match, plenty of Newcastle fans took to Twitter to react to Perez’s exploits…
