Newcastle United winger Christian Atsu has been ranked among the weakest link in the squad by the club's fans following their stalemate against bottom-club Fulham.

The 26-year-old has consistently been criticized for his perceived poor performances for the Magpies this season.

The Ghana international has not endeared himself to the club's supporters, who have been extremely critical of the winger.

Atsu lasted 72 minutes on the pitch but again failed to win the fans over the Newcastle drew 0-0 at home to fellow strugglers Fulham at St James' Park over the weekend.

The (3.5) was just beaten by Ayoze Perez (3.3) when it came to being the very weakest in the team, according to player ratings by the fans.

Meanwhile, statistics on Whoscored reveals that the Ghanaian was one of the most dangerous players on the field after making four successful tackles - no player on the pitch managed more - and boasted the joint-highest pass completion rate on the pitch from those who started the game.

Nevertheless, plenty of the Toon Army clearly feel that he does not ask enough questions of the opposition full-backs given what his role in the team is.
