Newcastle fans tear into Clark after Liverpool draw

Image for Newcastle fans tear into Clark after Liverpool draw

Ciaran Clark completed 90 minutes for Newcastle United in their draw against Liverpool – and the club’s supporters ripped into him for his performance on Twitter.

The Magpies earned a point after holding the Merseyside club to a 1-1 draw on Sunday at St James’ Park.

Rafael Benitez’s side are ninth in the Premier League table as a result and will go into the international break in good spirits.

Philippe Coutinho had put the visitors in front with a brilliant long-range effort, but Joselu netted a fortunate equaliser as the ball cannoned off him into the goal.

Newcastle fans will have been delighted to get a point against Liverpool, but were still critical of their defender Clark.

The 28-year-old presented Daniel Sturridge with a huge chance to score after a miscued clearance, but was bailed out by goalkeeper Rob Elliot as he made a save.

This Is Futbol has rounded up some of the best tweets:

Clark has been an ever-present in the Newcastle side and played every single minute of their Premier League season.

The Irishman has formed a brilliant partnership alongside fellow centre-back Jamaal Lascelles and the duo are helping the North East club steer away from relegation fears.

However, fans feel that his form dipped considerably at the weekend and that he struggled against the Liverpool attack.

Clark did show some vulnerabilities with a couple of lapses of concentration and will be keen for an improved display after the international break.
