Newcastle v QPR man of the match result highlights top two performers

7 years ago

Our Newcastle v QPR man of the match poll highlighted the contribution of two players in particular yesterday.

If like me you believe that most matches are won and lost in the heart of the midfield, then you’ll be pleased to hear that Moussa Sissoko and Jack Colback were United’s two top performers, in the opinion of the thousands of fans who took the time to vote.

Sissoko’s ability to turn defence into attack really caught the eye yesterday, so no surprise to see him capture over half the votes (55%).

Meanwhile, Jack Colback goes about his work quietly and effectively, something which registered with 15% of you, making him clear second choice.

The fact that nine other players got at least 1% of the vote (the minimum for us to list them) shows what a team effort it was against ‘Arry’s Rangers – long may it continue.

55% Sissoko

15% Colback

7% Ryan Taylor

6% Perez

5% Ameobi

3% Janmaat

2% Dummett

2% Williamson

2% Haidara

2% Cabella

1% Krul

The results did slightly differ from the independently sourced Newcastle v QPR ratings which we featured earlier today.
