Newcastle United could only manage to pick up a 1-1 draw with Swansea City yesterday.
Newcastle United striker Joselu has been criticised for posting such a positive message on social media website Twitter, after yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Swansea City.
Joselu was Newcastle’s saviour, as he came off the substitutes’ bench to score the equaliser.
However, the fact that he suggested that Newcastle had picked a ‘good result’ by drawing with bottom of the table Swansea City, meant that he did not get much praise on Twitter after the game.

How is a point against struggling Swansea, at home I might add, a good result? 3 points was the only result today, Home firm needs to improve rapidly— Lukeando88 (@Lukeando88) January 13, 2018
@NUFC if he calls that a good result god help us for the rest of the season!!!!— Brian Flatman (@brimaurs) January 13, 2018
Good result— ajf (@foxaj) January 13, 2018
No its not a good result. With man city on the horizon. its home games against the bottom clubs we HAVE to win. Anything less is not good enough.— gary robinson (@gigglingferret) January 14, 2018
That's not a good result mate, that should be 3 points all day. If you are content with a draw then you are not the striker we need. #NUFC— Beechaz (@JB_DarkKnight) January 14, 2018
Joselu has had a difficult time at Newcastle ever since signing from Stoke City in the summer, and his goal yesterday was highly important.
The Magpies had missed a whole host of chances before Joselu scored to get Rafael Benitez’s side back into the match.
Andre Ayew had given Swansea City the lead in the contest, after Dwight Gayle had missed a series of presentable opportunities.
It was still easy to sense the Newcastle fans’ frustration after the match, even though they did come from behind to claim a point, as Benitez's side badly need a victory.
Newcastle have been in poor form for far too long, and look to be locked in a relegation battle now.
