Newcastle icon Tino Asprilla has asked Toon fans on Twitter "what happened" during his former side's dismal 3-0 Premier League loss to Watford on Saturday afternoon.

Newcastle suffered their fourth straight league defeat thanks to goals from summer signings Will Hughes and Andre Gray, as well as an own goal from defender DeAndre Yedlin.

The loss leaves Rafa Benitez's men in a lowly 14th place after losing to Bournemouth, Burnley and Manchester United beforehand, scoring just one goal in that time.

Now just four points above the relegation zone, Newcastle fans are growing concerned at the club's freefall towards the bottom of the Premier League. But they have the chance to put that right in a huge clash against West Brom on Tuesday.

Asprilla asked fans on Twitter to tell him what happened during the 3-0 loss to Marco Silva's well-drilled side, as the Hornets made it two wins out of two after beating West Ham away from home six days prior to Saturday's win.

Newcastle fans replied to their former Colombia star out of frustration at their side's performance, with one fan describing himself as "lost for words" while another supporter believes the situation is so bad that 48-year-old Asprilla should "come out of retirement".
