Newcastle United bounced back from their 1-0 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend as they drew 1-1 with Liverpool at St James’ Park on Sunday, but Magpies fans weren’t impressed with Ayoze Perez’s performance.
The Spaniard has started all of Rafa Benitez’s side’s seven Premier League fixtures this season in the number 10 position, but he has provided just one assist in that time without getting on the score-sheet.
The 24-year-old once again failed to make an impression against Jurgen Klopp’s men and he is beginning to lose the backing of the St James’ Park faithful if their latest reactions are anything to go by.
Newcastle supporters were quick to have their say on Perez’s performance via social media, and while some say they’ve “simply had enough” of him, others went further and believe he is “a complete waste of a shirt”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Thought it was a hardworking,well organised performance today. Few things concern me , create very little and Perez plays every week #nufc?

A good point with 10 men. Perez must be some player in training. Absolute dross from the get go today and should have been hauled off #nufc

Gonna stick Perez in the same category as Bramble, Boumsong and Sammy Ameobi. Absolutely woeful and a complete waste of a shirt. #nufc
