What were your Newcastle v Villa player ratings?
Interesting to get an outside perspective and the industry leader for an independent viewpoints is the whoscored rating system (used by numerous parts of the football industry, including media, bookmakers and clubs themselves).
Over 200 raw statistics are used to calculate the player ratings and are weighted according to influence in the game – taking into account the area of the pitch and its outcome for each important event.
So how did the United players come out of Sunday’s match?
These are the WhoScored ratings (out of 10) against Villa, Benteke was the highest rated player for the visitors at 7.7 ;
No surprise to see Remy and Coloccini as the two key figures on their return and they were the two players who Alan Pardew picked out after the match.
Nothing beats quality!
