Starting with an easy one, what number does Wilson wear for Newcastle?

The Brazilian started the game and played 74 minutes, but it is clear that these Toon fans were not happy with his display.

What did these Newcastle fans think of Joelinton’s performance?

Were you happy with Joelinton's display?

No, he was awful

The 24-year-old was signed for nearly £40m last season but only scored two league goals.

This year he has played in a variety of positions and has scored three goals and provided three assists in all competitions, so he seems to be getting better this season, but maybe this game was not his match as these Newcastle fans are fuming with his display, which received a 6/10 rating (Chronicle).

Joelinton, before this game, had scored once and provided two assists in his last two league games, but he had no such luck in this match, and he could not help the Toon as they lost to the Whites in a pretty exciting game in which the Whites dominated possession and had more shots.

It will be interesting to see if Joelinton plays the Toon’s next match against Fulham at St James’ Park.
