Newcastle v Liverpool Player Ratings – Independent Source

6 years ago

What were your Newcastle v Liverpool 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.

Any system that exclusively uses automatically driven data to produce results naturally lacks the human touch, so at times I’m not too sure it gets everything right…much like the human version where the observer’s personal subconscious bias brings other negatives into play.

However, judge for yourself.

The overall marks for the two teams gave an average (out of 10) of 7.00 for Newcastle players compared to 6.67 for Liverpool’s.

Perez rated top man after scoring the winning goal and a lively second half performance.

Coloccini and Taylor credited with another clean sheet and solid protection of Tim Krul, while Abeid and Colback getting plaudits for their efforts in the engine room.

Not so sure what Sissoko did wrong?!!
