The full-back was hauled off mid way through the second half after a poor show on the right for the Magpies.

And fans have been having their say.

@Alex_Scott___ – “Expected much worse today but at least we weren’t embarrassed, our wingers need more end product but Joelinton still looks solid. On to Brighton.”

@FordeHaveMercy – “All I can say is...they are the champions of Europe for a reason...simply outclassed!”

@limasierra4562 – “Nothing to be ashamed of there. Losing 3-1 to probably the best team in the world isn't bad, especially as there were a couple of dodgy offsides and mistakes from us that gifted them goals, we weren't totally outclassed by them today.”

@joshybanyard – “The grand delusion of some #nufc fans continues today as they are shocked and appalled that we got beaten by the reigning European champions at a ground where they went undefeated last season.. I mean the shock.”

@JordNufcmorris – “I’ve seen a couple of people writing krafth off after today he wasn’t great but not writing him off just yet I’ll give him a fair few games.”

@Looney_Toon1892 – “So because #LFC spent most the game playing like it was a practice match it meant #nufc did an alright job aye alright then.”

@wales_shaun – “How have we actually managed to buy a rb worse than both Yedlin and Manquillo?”
