Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Eliaquim Mangala for Everton against Arsenal.

Mangala, who joined Everton on loan from Manchester City City on January transfer deadline day, featured in the Premier League game against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in North London on Saturday evening.

It was the 26-year-old central defender’s debut for the Toffees, and it was one for the France international to forget.

Sam Allardyce’s side slumped to a 5-1 defeat, with Mangala looking slow and sluggish, and simply failing to cope with the Arsenal attack.

Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Mangala for Everton against Arsenal - they are happy that the Magpies did not sign him.

The Daily Mail reported last week that Rafael Benitez’s side were interested in signing the Frenchman on loan from City in the January transfer window.

It was reported that Newcastle had asked the Citizens about the defender, who eventually ended up at Everton.
