Rafael Benitez’s Newcastle United side managed to claim a point against Everton yesterday.
Newcastle United fans have criticised Javier Manquillo for his performance against Everton last night.
Manquillo was offered a rare start by Rafael Benitez at Goodison Park, as Newcastle picked up a credible point.
The Spaniard helped Newcastle hold out for a 1-1 draw against Marco Silva’s impressive side.
But Newcastle fans were not entirely impressed with Manquillo, and have suggested that Benitez shouldn’t have picked him.
Nothing Manquillo does ever comes off. I’m staggered he keeps getting games. Never seen anyone try to cross a ball with a back-header.— John (@1892JP) December 5, 2018

Manquillo is the worst player in the toon’s history. Rather play Mike Hooper LB— Gary Jones (@gashjones) December 5, 2018
Manquillo has divided opinion at St. James’ Park for a long time now, and his performances very rarely receive positive reviews.
Newcastle picked up their point against Everton thanks to a strong defensive performance in the main.
Benitez’s side had taken the lead early on, when Salomon Rondon finished well from close range.
And although Richarlison did net an equaliser for Everton, Newcastle did well to protect their point.
