The Daily Star says Hatem Ben Arfa did himself no favours when he came off the bench during the 4-0 debacle, infuriating his manager with his poor work-rate.
Harsh words were exchanged in the dressing room afterwards, though the midfielder wasn’t the only player on the receiving end of a Pardew tongue-lashing.
The Newcastle boss could not hide his disgust at Newcastle’s woeful performance as they crashed to a fifth successive home defeat.
Fellow sub Sylvain Marveaux was also criticised for his lack of effort while it has emerged Pardew had considered hauling off an out-of-sorts Davide Santon within half an hour, before eventually withdrawing him at the interval.
