What were your Newcastle v Burnley 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 of the Newcastle v Burnley player ratings meant that United players on average rated 6.80, compared to Everton’s 6.96.
Colback (see his spectacular goal HERE) was man of the match in these ratings but the visitors had the next three highest rated players.
No surprise to see three of Burnley’s four highest rated being the attacking trio of Boyd, Ings and Barnes who caused United so many problems – the woodwork probably still shaking…
Most fans will see Cheick Tiote’s relatively high mark as a bit of a technical blip in their system!
