Newcastle United fans on Twitter have been sharing their criticism for Toon full-back Jamal Lewis and his latest performance for the club during their 2-0 defeat against Chelsea in the Premier League. 

Goals from Olivier Giroud and Timo Werner secured all three points for Thomas Tuchel’s side after Newcastle travelled to west London coming off the back of a victory over Southampton last weekend.

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

During the match at Stamford Bridge, lots of Toon supporters were tweeting their thoughts on Lewis and his performance on the pitch, with many not shy in letting their feelings and opinions on the defender known.

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

Lewis has had another shocking game #nufc

Jamal Lewis makes errors time and time again. Week in week out. He just doesn’t look up to the Premier League. Poor defensively. Poor going forward. What does he even offer? #nufc

@ChrisSteele90

Jamaal Lewis so out of his depth we need to call lifeguards. #NUFC

Newcastle signed Lewis 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 Toon fans, it’s easy to see that they were not impressed with what they saw from the 23-year-old in the game agains-t Chelsea.

Do you think Jamal Lewis is good enough to play for Newcastle in the Premier League?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With Chronicle Live giving Lewis a match rating of 5/10 for his display against the west London side, saying that he “should have done more to stop” Chelsea’s second goal, this backs up why these Toon fans were not happy with him in the game.

Moving forward, Lewis will undoubtedly be hoping that he can move on from this defeat and start putting in some strong performances for Steve Bruce’s side so he can look back on his first season at St. James’ Park fondly.
