What were your Newcastle v Southampton 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 Southampton player ratings meant that United players on average rated 6.64, compared to the Saints’ 7.04.

Gouffran(see his spectacular goal HERE) and Cabella were rated best of ours – they must add a canny bit if you score a goal!
