Newcastle v Wolves player ratings – Only two players escape slating by United fans
The Newcastle v Wolves player ratings as voted by United fans.
Newcastle’s players left the pitch with their six game winning run and five clean sheets on the bounce, a distant memory.
A second home defeat of the season leaving the vast majority of the 52,000+ crowd feeling a bit after the lord mayor’s show, having scored six at QPR in midweek.
So what did the Newcastle fans make of each player on the pitch?
Only two of the Newcastle United starting eleven emerged relatively unscathed.
Matt Ritchie (4.8) putting in his usual busy shift but doubled up on every time he got the ball, with minimum help from his teammates, apart from Vurnon Anita (4.6) who also put in a decent shift only to get a very harsh red card in the final stages.
Three players were at the opposite end of the spectrum, the trio all rated at under 3.0 by supporters.
Ayoze Perez (2.3) was rock bottom, totally ineffective and enraging fans a number of times when not bothering to put maximum effort in.
Paul Dummett (2.6) wasn’t far behind/in front, all sorts of problem when defending and going forward his ability to deliver the ball into the box was almost non-existent. Mohamed Diame (2.7) was very similar to Ayoze Perez and a lackadaisical display was suitably punished by fans.
Dwight Gayle just scraped 3.0 and maybe that is a little harsh as he received next to no support until subs were introduced at two goals down.
The other five of the starting eleven were all seen as also sharing the blame with Sels (3.5), Lascelles (3.7), Mbemba (3.2), Hayden (3.4) and Shelvey (3.8).
As for the two subs, Atsu looked lively and maybe deserved a bit more than his 3.9, whilst Mitrovic (3.4) wasn’t too bad but missed a sitter which could have potentially given United a lifeline, maybe fans marking him down on that miss accordingly.
