The visitors from Elland Road took the lead early on in the game after Raphinha’s cross beat Karl Darlow to find the back of the net.
Is Lascelles a Premier League quality player?
However, the English centre-back was unable to clear the Brazilian’s cross before the ball travelled beyond the reach of the 30-year-old goalkeeper.
Toon fans flocked to Twitter to share their frustration towards the centre-back after the Magpies found themselves behind with less than 15 minutes on the clock.
What exactly did these Toon fans have to say?
“Lascelles at fault. Again.”
The game on Friday night against Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites was the centre-back’s fourth appearance in the Premier League of the 2021/22 campaign having sat on the bench against West Ham United (via Transfermarkt).
With the Toon going into the game without a win in the league, it was clear to see these fans were furious with the manner of the opening goal and the role Lascelles had to play in it.
