Swansea v Newcastle United Player Ratings

10 years ago

We don’t carry player ratings as part of our match report but after putting it to the editorial team I was officially appointed as The Mag jury and here are my marks (out of 10) for the Swansea match;

Krul (8)
Simpson (8)
Perch (8)
Williamson (7)
Santon (8)
Gutierrez (8)
Tiote (7)
Cabaye (9)
Ben Arfa (7)
Ba (7)
Cissé (9)

Gosling (7) (For Cabaye 73mins) 
Ryan Taylor (7) (For Tiote 46mins) 
Ferguson (For Ba 59 mins) 

Non-stop graft for ninety minutes and for sure on that basis nobody deserved less than 7 out of 10.

Krul was his usual self in goal, never really troubled but when called upon he was so solid.

In front of him the central defenders coped comfortably and the full-backs did really well.

In terms of putting the touch of class on top of the football cake, it was goalscorer and the assister who stood out today.

For me Cabaye just shaded the Senegalese marksman for man of the match, Yohan quite literally ran himself into the ground AND contributed two real high quality assists.

What do you think?
