A section of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to express their responses to defender Ciaran Clark’s performance against Arsenal on Saturday.

The Gunners subjected United to their fourth defeat of the Premier League season thanks to goals from Xhaka and Mesut Ozil, but they managed to pull one back in stoppage time through defender Ciaran Clark.

Many Magpies’ fans took to Twitter to respond to the ace’s performance with mixed reactions, with some comments including “Ciaran Clark – goal machine” and “we were playing well until Clark came on.”

There appears to be a mixed bag of reactions to Clark’s substitute appearance here, and that does not come as a surprise. He may have pulled a goal back for United, but many fans seem to be in agreement that the defence went to pieces as soon as he stepped foot on the pitch. Arsenal were by far the better side, and boss Rafa Benitez will need to go back to the drawing board after this clash. Clark is not Benitez’ first choice for the centre-back position at the moment, so it comes to no surprise that he is not up to scratch at the moment, and why he is so wide of the mark right now. Hopefully Benitez will not have to use him as a substitute many more times, as he does not have a positive impact on Newcastle’s display whatsoever. Fans will undoubtedly have their fingers crossed that Newcastle can bounce back next weekend, and finally get a win under their belts.
