Newcastle United fans on social media were thrilled that their side beat Arsenal on Sunday but still took time to slam Dwight Gayle for his performance.

The Magpies recorded a 2-1 win against the Gunners at St James’ Park, with Ayoze Perez and Matt Ritchie grabbing the goals.

However despite being happy over achieving an unexpected victory, fans were left unimpressed by Gayle’s role in the win.

The 27-year-old forward played 63 minutes of Sunday’s game before being subbed, with Islam Slimani taking his place upfront.

While fans at St James’ Park clapped Gayle as he left the pitch, supporters on social media weren’t so keen to give him any credit.

One fan tweeted that even if he was involved in setting up one of the goals, the forward had a stinker against the Gunners on Sunday.

While another supporter stated that Gayle couldn’t shoot, pass or dribble and was baffled at why Rafa Benitez continued to play him.

The centre-forward has regularly featured for the Magpies this season, making 32 appearances across all competitions.

Despite playing a lot of games during this campaign, Gayle has only managed to score five goals.
