Newcastle v Oxford player ratings – Top mark for player on pitch for only 13 minutes
The results of the Newcastle v Oxford player ratings by fans.
A bit like the match overall, a bit difficult finding many positives amongst these collective match rating from Newcastle supporters.
In fact, the best mark is given to somebody who was on the pitch for only 13 minutes, Matt Ritchie (3.9) introduced just before Newcastle went 2-0 down.
Grant Hanley (3.2) was rated next best, having the job of trying to hold together a whole different back five as Rafa rang the (nine) changes.
The only other player not to fall below 3.0 was Yasin El-Mhanni (3.0) making his second senior appearance, though not much comfort being one of the least worst on this particular day.
As for hitting rock bottom, Aleksandar Mitrovic (2.1) got the very lowest mark, seeing his penalty saved and passing up the chance of potentially grabbing a hat-trick with a handful of chances going begging.
At the other end of the pitch Matz Sels (2.3) was next lowest, picking the ball out of the next three times – although in fairness little he could have done with any of them.
Everybody else was much of a muchness, with defenders Good (2.6), Haidara (2.5) and Gamez (2.5) all struggling.
Whilst the midfield was arguably even weaker with Lazaar (2.9), Hayden (2.6), Barlaser (2.5), Perez (2.4) and sub Gouffran (2.9) equally culpable.
