Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to slam the performance of Joelinton in the 1-0 win against Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night. 

Ryan Fraser’s goal was enough to see the Toon through to the third round, where they will face League Two side Morecambe away from home. Although Joelinton had a goal disallowed during the game, Toon fans were seemingly less than impressed with his overall performance against Tony Mowbray’s side.

A nice easy one to start off with. Who scored Newcastle's opening goal of the 2020/21 PL season?

The 24-year-old joined the Magpies from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim last summer in a club-record move, but seriously struggled in his debut campaign with Steve Bruce’s side, scoring just four goals in 44 appearances in all competitions (per Transfermarkt). The Brazilian struggled once again on Tuesday evening, picking up a 6.5/10 rating for his performance, which was the joint-worst of any Toon player who started the game (per WhoScored).

Should Newcastle get rid of Joelinton?

Plenty of Newcastle fans continued to slate Joelinton on Twitter.

Overall, it seems as if a lot of Toon fans are convinced that Joelinton simply isn’t good enough.
