After Newcastle United sealed their second win in a row with a dramatic 2-1 victory at home to Southampton, with two goals in the second half ultimately continuing their great start to a busy festive period, supporters have still taken issue with the misfiring Joelinton.
The Brazilian, who has scored just once all season for the Magpies, with his only goal coming in their first victory of the season away to Spurs, has been at the mercy of a lot of critics since his arrival at St. James’ Park – with the former Hoffenheim forward still not quite finding his feet in front of goal.
Who should start for Newcastle, Joelinton or Andy Carroll?
Joelinton scored seven goals and assisted five others for the German outfit last campaign, including one in the Champions League as per WhoScored.com, with supporters expecting a somewhat similar Premier League return since his record signing in the summer.
So far, he has failed to deliver, and when supporters were asked about a potential tactical change for Burnley, fans called for him to be dropped or sold.
Here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
Why is Joelinton even being mention he is absolutely garbage wants sold on as soon as possible

Joelinton not technical enough and too slow to play wide of a 3

Joelinton makes Joselu look world class

A horrible first half, It’s barely better than at Villa. Joelinton is trash and should not be starting like I have been saying for weeks but the happy clappers want to blame everything else but him. #NUFC
