Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Papiss Cisse's performance v Aston Villa

The Newcastle striker only lasted 33 minutes against Villa but was still berated by supporters.

Newcastle United didn't lose against Aston Villa on Saturday evening. But there was palpable disappointment on Tyneside nevertheless.

A 1-1 draw against the bottom side in the Premier League wasn't exactly inspirational - while the Magpies had the chances to win the game.

One big opportunity fell to Siem de Jong and he admitted he should have scored it. Newcastle fans weren't too happy with his display and there has been significant criticism thrown in the Dutchman's direction over the past few weeks.

But, despite going off after just 33 minutes, Papiss Cisse seemed to generate even more hate from the Newcastle faithful on social media.

Indeed, there was confusion as to why Steve McClaren didn't start Ayoze Perez and Aleksandar Mitrovic (again) and many feel Cisse's time at St James' Park should finally be put to an end in January.

Cisse was forced off through injury but, while he was on the field of play, the striker offered Newcastle little in the way of movement, creativity and general productivity. Here's how Newcastle supporters reacted to his display against Aston Villa on Twitter:
