Newcastle fans were left raging with the performance of right back DeAndre Yedlin in the club’s draw with West Brom on Tuesday.
The Magpies had to fight back from 2-0 down to take a 2-2 after twice seeing the Baggies’ attack tear down the flanks before crossing into the box to score, with Matt Ritchie’s set piece deliveries the catalyst for the comeback.
He saw a corner converted via Ciaran Clark’s forehead before a firmly struck free kick from the edge of the box ricocheted off two West Brom defenders and into the net past a helpless Ben Foster.
It was a result which ended a four match losing streak, with defeats to Burnley, Bournemouth, Manchester United and most recently Watford preceding this game.
However, the Toon Army were not happy with everything that was on display against the Baggies, with American international Yedlin absolutely slammed by fans on Twitter for what they saw as another disappointing display.
Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

Yedlin caught out on both goals. Caught ball watching for first, which led to being done like a kipper. Caught under ball for 2nd. Mbemba very hitty missy, but ain't a left back. But both looked stronger going forward when unshackled.

I agree, I also think Yedlin is becoming a defensive liability

Yedlin awful for both goals, and I like him generally, then he was presumably told off at half-time and was not providing Ritchie support.

I'd say Mbemba RB and Dummet LB Yedlin needs to be dropped after his last 2 performances.

Good birthday today. Nearly wasn't thanks to Yedlin. Too inconsistent to be a full back. Brilliant Geordie crowd tonight, Baggies were quiet.

Yedlin is having a torrid time, Rafa needs to have a word. Excellent going forward in the second half!

Yedlin at fault for both, poor going forward, needs a kick up the arse

The right back has been manager Rafael Benitez’s regular in the role, replacing Javi Manquillo following his return from injury, and has played every minute of the club’s last 10 matches.
In total he has 42 Newcastle appearances under his belt after signing from Tottenham in the summer of 2016, with one goal and seven assists to his name.
