Analysing the match on Monday Night Football, Carragher highlighted a period in the game when at least half the team appeared to be walking and not showing sufficient effort.

Yoan Gouffran has been a star since he signed for the club, but his lack of desire to play this season shows he is one of a number of Newcastle players who don't seem to be inspired by the manager.

He was on World Cup duty with France and some could question 'burn out', but he is no different to hundreds of Premiership players in the same boat.

Jamie Carragher: "Yoan Gouffran’s unwillingness to close down the ball in the opening minute of the match showed no desire.

“There’s lots of talk of Alan Pardew losing his job. Forget Alan Pardew for a minute, some of those players are a disgrace.

“We’re not talking about an end-of-season game, which still isn’t acceptable, but this is four or five games into a season."
