Match ratings of all United players after Norwich 2 Newcastle 2

5 years ago

Thanks to our man on the spot Jonathan Drape-Comyn at Carrow Road, for the match ratings from Norwich 2 Newcastle 2.

Darlow 5 – Obviously a huge clanger which cost us the second goal but he’s saved us more than a few times this season, so he’s earned this mistake in my opinion.

Yedlin 7 – Newcastle’s biggest attacking threat, defending still leaves a lot to be desired but a solid game.

Clark 9 – Mr.Consistent, another game at the back where he was sweeping up everything with his feet and his head.

Lascelles 3 – Would have been a one if it it wasn’t for the equaliser – aside from that great finish it was as bad as it gets for him.

Dummett 7 –

Shelvey 9 – Still Newcastle’s best player by a million miles.

Colback 3 – Another poor performance, doesn’t seem to be adding anything at all to the team at the moment.

Gouffran 6 – Rafa seems to like him but I still don’t see what he contributes to the team, except balance at times.

Ritchie 6 – Always know what you’re going to get from him, didn’t have the best of games last night though.

Perez 7 – A goal and an assist, looked a threat when he did get on the ball. Could have been the hero at the end.

Mitrovic 5 – Did nothing except miss four huge chances. Spent the rest of the game either on the ground or flinging his arms around blaming his teammates.

Diame 6 – I would prefer him in the centre of the pitch to Colback.

Gayle – N/A (Not on long enough)

Atsu – N/A (Not on long enough)

Fans – A big fat 10 – Considering Brighton is sold out in 2 weeks time, a full away end at Norwich is nothing short of brilliant… although there’s a probably a lot of single men out there!
