Newcastle players went into the international break in ninth place, a very good result and performance leaving them with 10 points from seven games.
Which individuals though have stood out from the rest?
Each match we ask you (the fans) for your player ratings and it is always interesting to see what the consensus is.
Here below is how the Newcastle players have performed over the course of the last six Premier League games (due to a technical problem we didn’t get player ratings for the Spurs game. Not a great loss anyway as with Shelvey’s red card it is a difficult game to asses).
The average player rating given by fans over the course of the six games (Huddersfield, West Ham, Swansea, Stoke, Brighton and Liverpool) is before the name, then the number of matches they have started in this six game spell then follows each name. Those who have started only one of the six matches are listed separately at the bottom, as hard to gauge on just one game/performance.
We have only included ratings for the games players have started, as again, substitute appearance marks often don’t give a viable rating, due to short length of time on the pitch.
7.4 Matt Ritchie
7.4 Mikel Merino
7.0 Ciaran Clark
7.0 Jamaal Lascelles
7.0 DeAndre Yedlin
6.8 Chancel Mbemba
6.8 Rob Elliot
6.1 Christian Atsu
6.1 Javier Manquillo
6.0 Isaac Hayden
5.3 Ayoze Perez
(7.5 Jonjo Shelvey, 7.4 Jesus Gamez, 5.6 Jacob Murphy, 3.1 Dwight Gayle)
No surprise to see a top pair of Matt Ritchie (7.4) and Mikel Merino (7.4).
Then we have a trio of defenders all on 7.0 – Ciaran Clark, Jamaal Lascelles and DeAndre Yedlin.
After that we have another two members of the back five, Rob Elliot and Chancel Mbemba, both on 6.8.
A drastic drop then to the other players, with the likes of Joselu, Manquillo and Atsu both averaging 6.1, Hayden 6.0, and Ayoze Perez a very distant 5.3.
