But Newcastle supporters are raging that he was still on the pitch following his incident with Burn.
He landed an elbow on the towering-defender, which resulted in just a yellow card - with Jamie Carragher saying it 'doesn't look great' on commentary.

Social media erupted when Havertz was not shown a red card.
One Twitter user wrote: "'Doesn't look good' understatement of the season. How is that not a red?"
A second tweeted: "That's a red card all day."
A third added: "Every single game these officials have video technology to help them make p**s easy decisions & they still can’t get them right. It’s beyond a joke now."
Match referee David Coote failed to brandish a red card and that decision proved crucial as Havertz went onto score the only goal of the game to hand his side all three points.
