Newcastle v Man City Players Ratings – Independently Sourced
What were your Newcastle v Man City 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 fact Manchester City players fill seven of the eight top ratings, suggests that the match wasn’t quite as close as Alan Pardew claimed.
Newcastle did play well in spells though and Cabella tops the NUFC ratings followed by Jack Colback, with Williamson coming out as the best defender.
