Every match we ask you for the Newcastle player ratings after the final whistle.

Without fail we get a great response, thousands of fans marking each Newcastle player out of 10 (1 being a minimum…) and the interactive system automatically updates the average mark for each player after every additional supporter has voted.

With so many fans voting each time, it does seem to produce a pretty good reflection of how the fans collectively saw the performance of each individual player.

We have now had five matches under Rafa Benitez in the Championship, two defeats and three wins, so who are the players that have and haven’t done the business for him?

We have gone through the player ratings scores from each match (the 11 who started each game but not the substitutes, as if a player only plays a few minutes they will get a lowish score) and then added those individual match scores together to get an average under the games played for Rafa Benitez this season.

Listed below are the average score for each player who has started at least one game under Rafa Benitez and in brackets after the name is how many games they have started this season:

7.1 Matt Ritchie (4)

6.5 Chancel Mbemba (4)

6.5 Yoan Gouffran (3)
