The Match of the Day pundit posted his view on Twitter after watching his former side lose 3-1 to last season’s league champions.

The club legend’s tweet angered fans, who seem to have plenty of complaints over the Magpies’ performance.

Hazard then struck again before the end of the game, by converting a penalty that Matt Ritchie had given away, after he was deemed to have fouled Victor Moses.
