Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Christian Atsu against West Ham United.

Atsu featured for Newcastle in their Premier League game against West Ham at St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.

The 26-year-old winger did not start the match, but the former Chelsea man came on as a substitute on 54 minutes.

 

The Ghana international struggled to make an impact on the match and did not do much of note during his time on the pitch, as the Hammers won 3-0.

According to WhoScored, Atsu - who earns £30,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com - took two shots, had a pass accuracy of 85.7%, and made one tackle and one key pass.

The defeat to the Hammers came after three successive wins for Newcastle, who remain in danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.
