Newcastle fans singled out Ayoze Perez for praise after their side lost 3-1 to Manchester United.
Newcastle's good run of form has really come to an end, as their 3-1 loss to Manchester United made it three defeats in a row for Alan Pardew's men.
Two first half goals from Wayne Rooney gave United a 2-0 lead, before Robin van Persie made it three on 53 minutes. Substitute Papiss Cisse did pull one back for Newcastle from the penalty spot, but it was another difficult day for manager Alan Pardew.
Fans had little good to say about the performance, but one player stood out - Spanish striker Ayoze Perez, whose reputation grows by the game.
21-year-old Perez joined Newcastle from Tenerife this summer but wasn't expected to make much of an impact; yet now, Perez is Newcastle's greatest attacking threat, scoring four goals in just nine starts.
Supporters took to Twitter to praise Perez, suggesting that not only was he their only bright spark at Old Trafford, but also that he deserves to be playing for a better team than Newcastle.
Here are some of the reactions from Twitter as Newcastle fans reacted to Perez's display.
Perez was really the only reason to keep watching this match. #nufc— Gregor (@HonestFergie) December 26, 2014
Ayoze Perez is gonna be an outstanding player, but if I am his agent I would get him as far away from this club and Pardew as I could. #NUFC— Wayne Spence (@Wayne_Spence) December 26, 2014
Perez once again continued to impress me. Works so hard and has real bit of quality. Can go far. #NUFC— Alex Peace (@AlexPeace93) December 26, 2014
Ayoze Perez is the only bright spark at this moment in time. The lad looks a talent. Could do damage in the premier league #nufc— Christopher Steele (@ChrisSteele90) December 26, 2014
Perez is something special mind. That kid can play, stand out player in both our last two games, didn't deserve to be on losing teams. #nufc— Chris Long (@nufc_chris) December 26, 2014
