Newcastle fans take to Twitter to slam sorry Lascelles

Newcastle fans take to Twitter to slam sorry Lascelles - Liverpool

Whilst so many of Rafa Benitez’s squad have thrived as of late, there is one player at St James Park who has fallen below expectation on a consistent basis, and Jamaal Lascelles was once again poor last night. The Geordies’ captain had his blushes spared as Divock Origi’s goal didn’t go down as his own-goal, but the 25-year-old was still awful.

It doesn’t help that whilst Lascelles has been nothing short of woeful this season the central defenders who have managed to stay fit around him have been incredible. All three of Fabian Schar, Federico Fernandez and Florian Lejeune, when fit and playing, have outdone Lascelles. Last night was another bad day at the office for Lascelles too, and he’ll just want the season to end now.

Having Virgil Van Dijk at the other end of the pitch for Liverpool only amplified the poor display from Lascelles, but the Dutchman isn’t the only one to do that this season. If things keep going the way they are then it won’t be long until Lascelles finds himself struggling for game time and maybe even making his way out of St James Park, although not many fans would complain given his form this season.

You can read the Magpies’ verdict on Lascelles here:

The Magpies are quickly getting fed up of Lascelles and will hope Benitez can either give him a kick and get him back to his best or ship him out if he can’t find last season’s form.
