Sam Fender returned to social media on Saturday to comiserate with Newcastle United fans after losing 2-0 to Liverpool.

Sam Fender made a return to social media over the weekend to share his painful reaction to Newcastle United losing to Liverpool at St James' Park.

Early goals from Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo were followed by a red card to Magpies shot-stopper Nick Pope as Eddie Howe lost his first Premier League match since last August - when Jurgen Klopp's side triumphed at Anfield.

Losing matches has become somewhat of a foreign feeling to Newcastle United fans in recent months thanks to the side's defensive resilience but the defeat to Liverpool had heads hanging low on Saturday evening.

One big-name Newcastle fan who felt the pain was Sam Fender.

The 'Seventeen Going Under' singer is a huge Magpies supporter. He was seen partying with fans on takeover day in 2021, sported a Newcastle United jacket on national TV and regularly has memorabilia on his live sets - not to mention he'll play two history-making nights at St James' Park this summer.

Fender has been relatively quiet on social media in recent weeks, with work going on behind-the-scenes to create his third studio album. A teasing post from one of his mates and producers seemed to confirm that recently.

However, Fender returned to posting on Instagram on Saturday as the two goals went in against Newcastle.

In the first story, the singer pulled a forlorn face as he captioned the selfie as 'wounded' and in the second he treated followers to a 'quadruple chin' video as he captioned the match a 'shocker'.

Thinking ahead to the Carabao Cup Final at Wembley Stadium this Sunday, Fender added: "Good luck quadruple chin for the toon."
