Newcastle supporters have been reacting on Twitter after Sean Longstaff’s disappointing display against West Ham United on Saturday afternoon. 

Steve Bruce’s men were hoping to secure another precious three points against the Hammers after seeing off Burnley 2-1 last time out.

The victory over Sean Dyche’s side moved six points clear of the relegation zone in their fight to avoid the drop, and they raced into a two-goal lead at St. James’ Park in the early kick-off.

However, goals from Issa Diop and Jesse Lingard levelled things up for the capital , but the Magpies managed to find the winner which has helped them take a massive step towards safety.

Although, these Newcastle fans were far from happy with Sean Longstaff.

“Why does it seem like we’re the ones with ten man!?! Longstaff’s been asleep and for some reason we’re trying to play keep ball in our own box and failing!”

“Longstaff off Willock on surely”

@RealLeeAnderson

“Longstaff still terrible I see.”

@40yearsofhurt

“Longstaff has bottled some tackles today.”

@TheGingerPirlo_

“Shelvey and Longstaff are quite possibly the worst midfield in the prem”

@StephenGlass

“Shelvey? Longstaff isn’t championship level and plays every week”

@Batcheese13

The fan’s complaints were justified after Longstaff’s replacement Joe Willock made an immediate impact and scored within minutes of coming off the bench.
