West Ham v Newcastle players ratings – Independently sourced
What were your West Ham 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 marks overall meant that Newcastle players on average rated 6.54, compared to West Ham’s 7.02.
While the Hammers probably just about shaded it, the fact Newcastle only has two of the top nine rated players is a bit harsh.
