Newcastle United fans on Twitter have been sharing their criticism for Toon defender Jamal Lewis and his latest display in a Toon shirt during their Premier League showdown against Manchester United. 

After falling to a 2-0 defeat against Chelsea on Monday night at Stamford Bridge, the Tyneside club travelled to Manchester to face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

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

During the game, Lewis’ performance caught the attention of a lot of Toon fans, but for all the wrong reasons, with many then flocking to Twitter to share their thoughts and opinions on the matter.

So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say about Lewis’ performance against United?

“Lewis is a liability gadget rid of him”

More ball watching from Jamal Lewis. Looked over his shoulder, saw Daniel James and then moved towards the ball rather than staying with his man. Dreadful defending. Again. #NUFC #MUNNEW

“I’ll say it again and again … Jamaal Lewis is down there with one of the worst players in the premier league … and he’s starting every week”

@Nufc_Forever

Jamal Lewis might just be the worst left back in our history #nufc

@jarrodcross_

Sorry but Lewis just isn’t good enough ! #nufc

@Dom_Porthouse

Lewis lacks the football intelligence for the Premier League. #NUFC #MANNEW

“Can we all come to an agreement Jamal Lewis is absolutely pony?”

@Lawsey_1521

“Jamal Lewis has got to be one of the worst players I’ve seen in a Newcastle shirt”

@NufcFT

“Lewis is as bad as Krafth. Awful fullbacks the pair of them”

@fatsomctoonfan

Newcastle signed Lewis, who is currently valued at £13.5 million and earns around £38k-per-week, back during the previous summer transfer window from Championship side Norwich City for a fee of £14.85 million.

Looking at these tweets from this group of Newcastle fans, it’s apparent that they were not happy with what they saw on the pitch from Lewis against United.

Given how Lewis failed to make a clearance, block or interception for the Tyneside club at Old Trafford according to SofaScore, this makes it understandable just why these Newcastle fans have been sharing their criticism for the defender on social media.

Is Jamal Lewis good enough to play in the Premier League?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Moving forward, Lewis will have to put this performance behind him and focus on Newcastle’s next league game and putting in a better display, if he gets the chance, to try and get his side away from the relegation zone where they currently lie above of.
