Newcastle United: Fans regret Jonjo Shelvey claims after Man City equaliser

Before Newcastle United pulled off one of their results of the season at home to Manchester City on Saturday afternoon, drawing 2-2 with the current Premier League champions despite possessing a much less heralded squad, supporters were hesitant over midfielder Jonjo Shelvey starting the game at St. James’ Park before his late heroics. 

Two stunners from Raheem Sterling and Jetro Willems cancelled each other out in the first half when the two sides went into the break level-pegging and supporters had to wait until the final ten minutes to see any more action – with a blockbuster strike from Kevin De Bruyne putting City into a deserved lead.

However, polarising midfield maestro Shelvey got to have the final say – feeding off a short free-kick just outside the area to arrow a brilliant drive past Ederson into the bottom corner, thereby sending the Gallowgate End into raptures.

When the line-up was announced, it looked as if many supporters had their reservations about Shelvey starting – with some citing his poor work ethic and lack of tracking as a reason he should’ve been left out.

After the Englishman stepped up and nicked a crucial point for the Magpies, some of these fans will be regretting their choice of words.

Here’s what they said on Twitter prior to the match.
