The Newcastle v Manchester City player ratings as voted by United fans.

Thanks to the thousands of you who took the time to complete these ratings so far.

Three players were picked out by supporters as putting in exceptional performances, step forward – Vurnon Anita (8.6), Cheick Tiote (8.4) and Jamaal Lascelles (8.1).

Funny how things can change so quickly, as very few would have chosen any of the trio a week ago.

Those that were seen as the supporting cast (7.0) or better, were Karl Darlow (7.3), Chancel Mbemba (7.8), Moussa Sissoko (7.5) and Andros Townsend (7.7).

Whilst those on the average/ok list were Jack Colback (6.8), Paul Dummett (6.9) and Ayoze Perez (6.4).

Of the starting eleven, only Papiss Cisse (5.6) was seen as having a really poor match, the effort looked to be there but his touch was appalling.

I think that is a pretty fair reflection of the game and at Liverpool on Saturday I fancy that to get a result we will be needing a few more in the 8.0 category and probably everybody else with a minimum of 7.0 in the eyes of the supporters.

At least we can now look forward to Anfield with just a little bit of hope and maybe even expectation.

These are the collective fan ratings as at 10am on Thursday morning:
