Newcastle picked up a massive win over Burnley in the Premier League last night.
First half goals from Fabian Schar and Sean Longstaff handed the Magpies their second win in four days.
Rafa Benitez will be delighted with his side’s performance in the 2-0 win. Newcastle controlled the game from start to finish and they could have scored more on another day.
The win takes Newcastle up to 13 in the League table and they will be looking to pull further clear of the drop zone in the coming weeks.
Newcastle have certainly improved a lot in the recent weeks and if they can put together a run of good results now, a top half finish isn’t beyond them.
Midfielder Sean Longstaff put in another solid display for his side. Meanwhile, January signing Miguel Almiron continues to adapt to the Premier League.
However, Ayoze Perez’ display was a bit disappointing last night. The Spaniard seemed to lack conviction and he was wasteful.
The home fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the attacker’s display and here are some of the reactions.
Can I just say how horrific of a footballer ayoze perez is, fucking shocking

Ayoze Perez can’t pass for shit

Newcastle would be a good midtable team if they get a CB and upgrade on Hayden and Perez. Most PL attackers would be an upgrade on Ayoze Perez.

Had a good game again tonight. Still loses the ball too often but credit where it’s due.

Do the opposite of Ayoze Perez and we will love you.
