Newcastle United suffered their third 1-0 defeat on the road in the Premier League this season as they were beaten by Burnley at Turf Moor on Monday night, and Magpies fans weren’t impressed with Ayoze Perez’s performance.

The Spaniard once again started in the number 10 position despite only having one goal and one assist in his previous nine top flight appearances, but he failed to make an impact from an attacking point of view before being replaced by Isaac Hayden 14 minutes from the end.

His substitution actually came just two minutes after Jeff Hendrick had given the Clarets the lead, with Perez partly to blame having lost the ball further up the pitch as Rafa Benitez’s men added to their previous 1-0 losses against Huddersfield Town and Brighton and Hove Albion this term.
