Newcastle crashed to a 3-0 defeat at home to West Ham on Saturday.
The Magpies came into the game on the back of a couple of impressive performances but they struggled to turn up against the Hammers.
Javier Hernandez put the away side ahead early on in the first half. The likes of Rondon and Perez had chances to equalise but they failed to find the back of the net.
Hernandez completed his brace in the second half and Felipe Anderson continued his impressive form with a goal as well.
The visitors could have had a few more if Chicharito had converted his chances.
Benitez will be unhappy with his side’s showing against West Ham and it will be interesting to see how Newcastle react in their next game.
The home fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the game. They were particularly unhappy with Javier Manquillo’s performance and here are some of their reactions.

Pathetic performance from us today, to lose 0-3 at home against West Ham is actually embarrassing. Perez was shocking today, needs dropping. Manquillo and Atsu should never been in the squad again. But hopefully we can get something at Everton on Wednesday. #NEWWHU #nufc

Rafa made some mistakes with the formation and allowing the waste of space who is Manquillo to play. I hope we continue the form we had prior to todays game. Disappointing game.

Every now and then, Rafa gives Manquillo a chance. And every single time, he shows why he’s one of the worst players to ever play for us. How Clark isn’t at left-back, I’ll never know. #nufc
