Hayden has now explained the tweet and told The Shields Gazette: “I’m realistic about these things, and I don’t think I was harsh on myself.

“I set myself high standards and I understand my game. I understand what I need to improve on.

“I just believe I’m an honest person, and if I have a good game I feel I can say I’ve had a good game If I’ve had a bad game, I feel I can say I’ve had a bad game.”

Newcastle are ninth in the Premier League table at the moment with 10 points from seven matches, just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
