Newcastle United fans on Twitter have been sharing their disappointment over Toon defender Emil Krafth and his latest performance for the Tyneside club in their recent 3-1 defeat against Manchester United in the Premier League. 

Goals from Marcus Rashford, Dan James and Bruno Fernandes secured the three points for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, with Allan Saint-Maximin scoring the consolation goal for Newcastle.

Starting with an easy one, how much did Joelinton cost Newcastle when he swapped Hoffenheim for Tyneside?

During the game, lots of Toon fans flocked to Twitter to share their criticism for Krafth and his performance in the game, with many not feeling very happy with the 26-year-old’s display.

So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say about Krafth’s performance against United at Old Trafford?

Krafth is shocking mind! #nufc


Krafth is hopeless #NUFC


“Krafth is a terrible footballer”


Willock leaves Krafth and he falls apart. Absolute liability


“Kraft is so poor, making letting yedlin leave even more Ridiculous”


Krafth dreadful, get dubravka back in and get BRUCE OUT laughing and joking on man final straw #nufc


“Can dummett play RB because in my opinion Kraft is much worse than Lewis, much worse!”


“Never a massive fan of Yedlin but surely you keep him over Krafth man. Stealing a living”


Newcastle signed the right-back from French club Amiens SC for a fee of £4.86 million back in August 2019.

Since then, the defender, who is currently valued at £3.6 million and earns around £57k-per-week in the north-east, has made 32 appearances for the Tyneside club (per Transfermarkt).

Looking at these tweets from this group of Newcastle fans, it’s clear to see that they were not overly impressed by what they saw from Krafth on the pitch against the Manchester club.

Was Krafth Newcastle's worst performer against United?





Given how Krafth was the lowest-rated player out of any player that made an appearance in the game at Old Trafford according to SofaScore, this backs up just why these Toon fans are not happy with him.

Moving forward, Krafth will have to improve his performances for Newcastle if he wants to keep his place in the side and his team avoid being relegated to the Championship by the end of the season.
