Newcastle United fans react on Twitter to Matz Sels' performance against Hull City

Newcastle United's Matz Sels looks dejected after the match

Newcastle United were knocked out of the EFL Cup by Hull City yesterday evening.

Newcastle United fans appear to have already given up on summer signing Matz Sels, after he dropped a clanger in their EFL Cup match against Hull City last night.

Newcastle looked to be on their way to the semi-finals of the competition when a goal from Mohamed Diame put them in-front at the KCOM Stadium in extra time.

However, before Newcastle’s celebrations at taking the lead had died down, Sels made a huge error to allow Robert Snodgrass to tap in an equaliser.

The Belgian stopper parried a long-range effort straight into Snodgrass’ path, and the Scottish international could not miss from close range.

Hull went on to win the tie on penalties, and Newcastle fans are blaming one man for their cup exit.

Sels started this season as Newcastle’s number one stopper, but after a series of shaky displays he was replaced by Karl Darlow.

The Magpies have been much more solid at the back since Darlow has come in, and Sels appears to have a lot of work to do to break back into the team at St. James’ Park now.

Newcastle’s next match comes against Nottingham Forest on Friday, when Darlow is almost certain to be restored to Rafael Benitez’s side’s starting line-up.
