Newcastle fans rip into Moussa Sissoko once again on Twitter

Moussa Sissoko

The Magpies faithful were angered by the flailing midfielder once more against Norwich on Saturday afternoon.

What a contrast between Moussa Sissoko's performance against Norwich City at St James' Park and his display for Newcastle United at Carrow Road.

During the reverse fixture, Sissoko actually turned up as Newcastle won 6-2. Here, however, was more of the usual from the 26-year-old Frenchman.

So anonymous is the midfielder on a regular basis that Rafa Benitez is better off playing him at left-back.

But, even then, Sissoko still infuriates the Newcastle faithful. They are fed up of a player who gives so little week on week but clearly has such a high opinion of himself.

The Magpies worked far harder than supporters are used to against the Canaries. But Norwich were still able to leave Carrow Road with three goals and three points after a 3-2 win.

Many fans feel relegation - which looks very likely indeed for Newcastle now - will at least mean Sissoko leaves Tyneside...

Here's how Twitter reacted to his display against Norwich:
