A lot of Newcastle United fans have been criticising Toon right-back Emil Krafth, who started the North East club’s most recent Premier League game versus West Bromwich Albion on Saturday

Krafth had made just two other Premier League appearances for the Toon this term prior to today’s clash, which saw the Sweden international make his first top-flight appearance for the North East club since their 4-1 loss to Manchester United on 17th October

In their live blog following this match, ChronicleLive criticised the Toon’s defending at points in this game and it would seem as though Krafth, in particular, stood out as one of the North East club’s weak links in that area, judging by these Newcastle supporters’ tweets. 

So, what did these Newcastle United fans have to say about Emil Krafth’s performance in this game?

Many Toon fans slated the £3.6m-rated man’s quality, with one particular Newcastle supporter stating that the 26-year-old’s defending was ‘shocking’ versus the Baggies and another Toon supporter going so far as to say that Krafth is ‘one of the worst players’ they’ve seen in the Toon’s colours.

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

Was Krafth Newcastle's worst player versus West Brom?

YES

YES

NO

NO

So, it’s clear from these Newcastle fans’ tweets that Krafth’s performance in Saturday’s game has not earned him much popularity amongst the Toon faithful.
