Newcastle United were comfortably beaten by Manchester United this weekend.
Newcastle United returned to domestic action following yet another international break with a trip to Old Trafford, and the Magpies were unable to get one over on Manchester United, soundly beaten by the hosts despite taking an early lead.
Rafa Benitez's side opened the scoring courtesy of Dwight Gayle, but United hit back with goals from Anthony Martial, Chris Smalling, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, and Newcastle had no answer to the hosts' impressive attacking play.
One area of the field Newcastle would have been desperate to win was central midfield, but the visitors fell well short in that regard, with Isaac Hayden failing to make his mark and being thoroughly bossed by the likes of Pogba and Nemanja Matic.
Hayden has attracted plenty of criticism for some underwhelming performances this season, and Saturday's showing is not going to have one him any more fans.
The 22-year-old needs to perform far better than this if he wants to keep his place in Newcastle's starting XI; especially when summer signing Mikel Merino returns from injury.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Newcastle fans thought of Hayden's latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
#NUFC compare that performance to the Bournemouth one and you'll see it was (as a team) it was better. But there's still these players like Joselu who we just have to carry. Hayden was poor today too. No leader in the defence but this is because our captain is injured annoyingly.— Felix_NUFC (@Felix_NUFC) November 18, 2017
Nah - always showing. Did some great covering as Hayden was again MIA— tf NUFC podcast (@tfweeklypod) November 18, 2017
Shelvey hardly wasted a pass. I think we have a major problem in CM, but it’s not Jonjo.
Watch Hayden's defending for Pogba's goal.— NUFC Gallowgate (@NUFCgallowgate) November 18, 2017
Don't dwell though. We go again
If that idiot Hayden actually knew how to jockey things might have been different— Harry Robertson (@HarryRobbo9889) November 18, 2017
