Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Georginio Wijnaldum's performance against Aston Villa

Newcastle drew 0-0 with Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon.

Newcastle United's hopes of avoiding relegation from the Premier League have been dealt a huge blow after a 0-0 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon.

After beating Crystal Palace 1-0 last weekend, Newcastle headed to already-relegated Villa with many believing that they would claim another win and pull away from the relegation zone.

However, Newcastle were left frustrated at Villa Park, as they couldn't break down Eric Black's men in what was a disappointing 0-0 draw.

Rafael Benitez's side now look unlikely to beat the drop, and fans have been left devastated by the prospect of another drop into the Championship, with one player receiving plenty of criticism - Georginio Wijnaldum.

The Dutch midfielder, signed from PSV Eindhoven last summer, arrived with a reputation as one of the top playmakers in Europe, and whilst he has shown flashes of his quality, he has all too often gone missing away from home.

That was again the case as Newcastle drew with Villa, with Wijnaldum serving up another virtually anonymous performance at Villa Park - and Magpies didn't hold back on Twitter after the game.

Fans called him a 'disgrace' for his performance, and blasted him for his performances since around November and December, stating that he is getting worse and worse as the season goes on.

Here are some of the reactions from Newcastle fans after Wijnaldum's display against Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon...
