'Back to the push for Europe', 'Sack it off' - Newcastle fans react to FA Cup draw
Newcastle United fans have taken to social media to react to news that the club have been drawn against either Norwich City or Chelsea for the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The Magpies saw off League Two table toppers Luton Town on Saturday to secure their progression to the next stage of the competition, Ayoze Perez netting a double with Jonjo Shelvey rounding off a nine minute spell in which they scored their three goals.
Fans saw Dennis Wise and Rio Ferdinand conduct the draw on Monday evening, with the north east club set to visit either Norwich or Chelsea after the two clubs played out a 0-0 draw on Saturday.

Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

The Magpies will learn their opponents when the Canaries and the Blues face off in their replay on the 17 January.
Their last visit to Carrow Road saw the two sides share the points in a 2-2 draw last season, while the Magpies’ last trip to Stamford Bridge ended in a 3-1 defeat at the beginning of December 2017.
