Newcastle United lost in the English Premier League on Saturday, defeated 2-1 away to Watford.
First half goals from Roberto Pereyra and Andre Gray secured the three points for the Hornets, despite Ayoze Perez pulling one back shortly after the break.
In his post-match comments, manager Rafa Benitez accused his players of already being ‘on holiday’, with nothing tangible to play for before the end of the season.
Fans were certainly frustrated with the result and performance, aiming particular criticism at defender Paul Dummett who conceded a penalty and also mishit a clearance in the build up to Watford’s opener.
The performance comes after another poor display last week at home to West Bromwich Albion.
Some now believe he should be replaced this summer. Do Newcastle need to sign an upgrade at left-back or will he do next season as Newcastle look to avoid any thoughts of relegation?
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts…

However I do wish people would take their black and white tinted glasses off and see that dummett Is absolutely shocking, nowhere near a premier league player regardless how much he loves us and tries #nufc

But that Dummett foul though. It is harder to give away a foul there than win the ball. It's as if Dummett made the effort to completely miss touching the ball. #nufc

Need an upgrade from Dummett. And I'll never understand what Rafa sees in Manquillo. #NUFC

Wretched 1st half and Dummett had a nightmare again. Much better 2nd half but the damage was done. Should have sealed top half by now but 3 poor losses in a row.

Dummett responsible for the last 3 goals we've conceded, could have been the last 4

Dummett back to his old self. At fault for both goals today and he’s given away a penalty 🤣
