‘Brainless’, ‘Sell him’: Some Newcastle fans slate 25-year-old’s display vs Crystal Palace

A selection of Newcastle United supporters were angered by the performance of DeAndre Yedlin during the club’s slender 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace in the Premier League yesterday.

Rafael Benitez’s side had come into the game on the back of a five-match winning run at home, and they had the opportunity to seal another victory to move further clear of the relegation places.

The Magpies managed 18 attempts on goal, compared to Palace’s three throughout the course of the game, but ultimately, the visitors prevailed through a late penalty nine minutes from time.

Until that point, the south London side had failed to register a single shot on target, and a few Magpies fans were angered by the fact Yedlin handed them maximum points with a needless challenge on Wilfried Zaha in the box.

Below are some of the best reactions:

Newcastle still have a seven-point advantage over 18th-placed Cardiff City in the standings, although they have played a game more than the Bluebirds, and they should be confident of beating the drop, barring a surprise turn of events.
