Newcastle v Bournemouth player ratings by fans – A bit too savage for some?

The results of the Newcastle v Bournemouth player ratings by fans.

Always interested to see what supporters have collectively made of the latest performance, when using our interactive ratings system.

Each player marked out of 10 and the averages below.

A defeat is never going to help things when it comes to fans giving player ratings after a match but are some of these below, too harsh?

None of the 14 players used were felt worthy of 7.0 or better by Newcastle supporters.

In fact, only four managed 6.0 or better.

The black and white man of the match was Florian Lejeune (6.8), another very decent performance where he looked assured, whilst others around him struggled.

Rob Elliot (6.6) was next best and made some decent saves, always hard to judge with headers as keepers find them more difficult to predict than when players are shooting – but the winner went in more towards the centre of the goal than a corner, so just maybe he might feel he could have made a better attempt at it.

Sharing a rating of 6.2 are Jamaal Lascelles and Matt Ritchie.

The captain did ok before being forced off and Newcastle really falling apart in the second-half, whilst Matt Ritchie was at the heart of the best attacking moves before the break and deserved at least one goal, seeing a rebound off the post and a brilliant save on another one.

After that, it is slim pickings, with six of the 14 players used getting a mark of 5.0 or better.

Best of those was Jonjo Shelvey (5.7) who also had his moments in the first-half, whilst Christian Atsu (5.6) also threatened but couldn’t quite turn it into clear chances/goals.

Substitute Ciaran Clark (5.5) came on and put in his usual decent show, one goal saving clearance when last man was his highlight.

Yedlin, Hayden, and Gayle, all shared a rating of 5.2. The returning striker can feel a bit hard done by I think, as he had a perfectly good goal disallowed and was lively throughout, sadly though not able to properly control an excellent Shelvey through ball after the break when the scores were level.

Right at the bottom was Jacob Murphy (1.9). Only on for the last 10 minutes but he looks totally lost and many fans will be thinking he needs more time to adapt, whatever his price tag, with Aarons maybe a better option for the bench.

Next lowest was another sub, Ayoze Perez (2.6) sadly as ineffective as an impact sub as he has been when starting recently. Given 25 minutes on Saturday but did nothing.

Poor old Joselu (3.3) took the brunt of the criticism, working hard and doing a few decent things in the first-half but his shooting shows a total lack of confidence and at Old Trafford it must be a knocking bet that Gayle plays as a single striker.

That leaves Javier Manquillo (4.4). Maybe like Joselu, by getting a regular game his limitations in the Premier league are increasingly being exposed, especially playing as left-back rather than his primary sport on the right.
