Benitez favourite really isn’t good for Newcastle United’s survival bid – Agreed?

The Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern are pretty happy with their side’s draw with Liverpool over the course of the weekend. 

Indeed, our Geordie contingent think grinding out a draw against one member of the much celebrated top six is a rather good way of getting over their disappointing loss to Brighton last time out.

Still, one man who failed to impress in either game has continued to divide opinion amongst our punters clad in black and white, even into Monday.

Ayoze Perez seems to be Rafa Benitez’s favoured choice at No.10, though his lack of cutting edge in front of goal has seriously annoyed sections of our bar. Few would doubt his work rate in recent games, helping recover possession, though some of Newcastle’s best play has completely by-passed him.

With Jonjo Shelvey, Matt Ritchie and Mikel Merino all more likely to feed Joselu, Perez’s contribution appears to be more a physical one, rather than a quality one.

So, having said all this, we’re asking Newcastle fans whether or not they would drop him. Something to think about over the international break, vote below!
