Newcastle United picked up their second successive Premier League win on Sunday as Jamaal Lascelles’ goal saw them beat Swansea City 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium, but Magpies fans weren’t impressed with the performances of all of their players.
Having lost their opening two fixtures on their return to the top flight without scoring, the Magpies have now bounced back with two victories and two clean sheets.
Lascelles’ thumping second-half header proved to be the difference between the two sides, and the team certainly had to work hard from a defensive point of view to make sure that they took the three points back to Tyneside.
Perez started in the number 10 position and played the full 90 minutes, but he made little impact from an attacking sense.
Newcastle supporters were quick to have their say on the Spaniard’s showing via social media, with many saying that he “offers nothing”, while others are keen to see him dropped from the starting line-up next week.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
I agree, would drop Perez. Too lightweight and always left wanting more from him. so glad we have someone with merinos class! #nufc

Perez as inconsistent and ineffective as ever. He's just destined to forever be that way. #NUFC
