Arsenal v Newcastle Player Ratings – Independently Sourced (1 NUFC Player In Top 11!)
What were your Arsenal v Newcastle player ratings?
Interesting to get an outside perspective and the industry leader for an independent viewpoint is the whoscored rating system (used by numerous sections 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.
The return of Sissoko, Remy and Debuchy to the starting eleven made very little difference to the end result.
One positive thing didn’t change either and that was the fact that Cheick Tiote yet again put in a defiant performance that those around him failed to match.
In the WhoScored ratings, Cheick is the only Newcastle player to make the top eleven players on the night;
Subs: Shola 6.1, Armstrong 6.0, Mapou 6.1
Ozil 9.0, Cazorla 8.0, Koscielny 8.0, Arteta 7.9, Szczesny 7.7, Monreal 7.6, Podolski 7.4, Sagna 7.4, Giroud 7.4, Ramsey 7.2, Mertesacker 7.1 (Subs: Flamini 6.1, Sanogo 7.2, Rosicky 6.1)
