Amid a fairly worrying crisis for Newcastle United, a decision from Bruce prior to this evening’s meeting with at had talking online. Indeed, rather than select defender Emil Krafth, the boss opted to deploy Isaac Hayden as the right-wing-back, a position he is fairly unfamiliar with. 

As per Transfermarkt, Hayden has only made four appearances in that role in his recorded career, compared to the Sweden international’s 154 in that berth. With that in mind, a number of supporters pointed online that it looked very bad on the 25-year-old, given that both men played in the exhausting win over just a few days ago and both and Javier Manquillo are both injured.

With that in mind, even prior to the draw on Merseyside, one user was even predicting an end for the Swede so early into his Newcastle career, while others were damning in their verdicts too. So, having said that, here’s a look at some of the reaction online, before he was brought on as a sub.
