Newcastle United are still without a win this season after losing at home to Leicester City.
In their Premier League clash at St James’ Park, Newcastle were beaten 2-0 by the Foxes.
Jamie Vardy opened the scoring with a penalty before England defender Harry Maguire confirmed the win.
It has been a very difficult season for Newcastle and with just two points this season, they are in a relegation battle.
One major problem for Newcastle is their firepower up front. They are simply not scoring any goals.
With just four goals in seven games, getting rid of Dwight Gayle and Aleksandr Mitrovic this summer beggars belief.
Although neither were prolific, they are surely better than Joselu, who started against Leicester.
Joselu vs. Leicester
Joselu does have two goals this season. But he has been poor when he has played.
Against Leicester, he was anonymous for most of the game and wasteful in attack.
Here are how Newcastle fans reacted to his performance against Leicester.
And Rondon can't come back quick enough. People will say he hasn't been great but I can't watch poor Joselu in another game. It just makes me sad. #NUFC

I've said in the past to leave the Mitrovic situation in the past but even I'm now struggling to see how the hell he couldn't get a game ahead of the likes of Joselu.
I would rather see one of the academy strikers playing than watching him week in week out!! #NUFC

Rafa must also start to take some blame as well, he picks Joselu week in week out, he got rid of two clear better options up top, can't see things getting any better #NUFC

Do some supporters genuinely believe Rafa looked at Joselu, Perez & Rondon and said “ok Mike, you can let Mitrovic & Gayle go now, we are all good for goals oh & keep the £27m, maybe use 9m to buy Muto if you like?”
Get a grip.
He’s been shafted. #nufc

I can't quite fathom how Joselu is the only #nufc striker to survive this summer. He isn't good enough.

I never want to see Joselu in a Newcastle shirt again. I'm sick of seeing Matt Ritchie subbed when he's the best player on the pitch. We should have had a penalty. Atsu is entirely useless. I thoroughly dislike Harry Maguire.
I'm proper tired of football. #nufc

Please please please dont ever play Joselu ever again Rafa. He is pathetic. How you can get rid of Mitrovic and Gayle and keep him i just dont know why 🤔 #NUFC
