The results of the Newcastle v Everton 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.

It would be difficult to pick any player out really as Newcastle’s man of the match against Everton.

If pushed I thought two players did ok and showed the rest of them a decent example.

Sure enough the fans’ collective vote gave Jamaal Lascelles 6.0 and DeAndre Yedlin 5.9.

Not brilliant scores but half respectable on a bad night all round for Newcastle.

Lascelles doing well at the back generally, whilst Yedlin was Newcastle’s most dangerous player going forward through sheer determination.

However, supporter gave one player a higher mark than the pair and that was Mikel Merino with 6.3. I like the midfielder but despite hitting the post with a glorious shot from getting on for 35 yards, I didn’t think he was at his best.

As for the very lowest marks, some were seriously low.

Mohamed Diame (2.2) is a mystery to fans, with seemingly nobody seeing any value at all from having him in the team.

Not far behind last night was Karl Darlow, who followed up a poor game against Leicester with a horrendous error that gifted the game to Everton.

Jonjo Shelvey £3.6) completed a trio of worst performers, an ineffectual game topped by a very stupid late red card in the final seconds.

Elsewhere, two other players managed a rating of 5.0 or better, with wingers Christian Atsu (5.3) and Matt Ritchie (5.2) a little better than most around them.

Maybe a little harsh on Dwight Gayle (4.3) with next to no decent service up front, or help from Diame.

Whilst at the back, Javier Manquillo (4.8) and Florian Lejeune (4.3) continue to struggle to convince they can do it in the top tier.

As for the subs, fans saw little encouragement there either.

Here’s hoping for better at Arsenal…

    Bad, bad marks, but every match it`s the same players with the lowest ratings yet he keeps playing them.
    he`s got an attitude problem like wor kid

    • Wor Lass

      …. but not like Wor Lass!

    How can SloMo continue to justify a place in the match day squad let alone the starting eleven. He will go down in the history of NUFC as one of the worst players to pull on the shirt.

    He may ‘train well’ during the week but on the pitch he is woefully out of his depth. Contrary to what those top journalist’s at the Chronicle, and even some on here would have you believe, he doesn’t provide pace, running and power to the midfield he effectively just leaves you a man short.

    I would say get rid in January but apart from not seeing anyone who would buy him for a fee and pay him the wage he would no doubt expect, he is a Benitez buy and favourite…

    • TheNutJob

      i only watched highlights the other night & a more mobile player would have scored 2 in the positions he was in, he`s totally useless,
      Rafa`s trying to justify his buys & it`s killing us

    • Problem is that we have nobody who can fill in, Mo at least offers some physical presence in the box and defending set-pieces.

      • 1957

        Sorry I’ve never seen him make an impact with attacking or defending at set pieces, he can’t mark players and is easily pushed aside.

        I agree with your other post regarding a Mkhitaryan type player, a definite step up in class but, he would be out of our price range I suspect. He wouldn’t provide the physical presence you credit SloMo with though but he might gives us some goals and be able to pass the ball to his own players.

      • mentalman

        Its Ritchie for me at no10 if we stick with that formation or try one of our strikers there

      • Phil Yare

        its pretty bad when you look at wolves who spent 16m on a player who plays in the same position. shocking really

      • Oldgeordie

        Definition of a Premier league player? Defends set pieces and a physical presence in the box! Give me strength.

  • I’ve had it with Shelvey, sell the idiot. Doesn’t cover, doesn’t defend, can’t have a proper shot at goal too. Darlow’s fumble and the woodwork(twice) won it for lucky Everton. We did very solid overall, but keeper situation is getting dire now as is the n. 10, holding midfielder and left-back role. Those are our MUST BUY positions to fill in January. Sell – SHELVEY and DIAME for sure, and most likely – RITCHIE(really hasn’t produced anything in the PREM) and DARLOW.
    Mkhitaryan is being forced out of MAN U, hopefully we can get a player like him we so desperately need in that n. 10 role.

    I was a bit amused by the ‘trains well in the week’ comment below. Good old Bobby Robson used to rave about Ameobi in training. He played Bramble week after week. So, what else is new? What do football mangers see in some players that 50,000 fans can’t see? If I was a manager I would ask all the team pool to give me their suggested team sheet each Friday. That would be interesting, would it not?

    • Phil Yare

      obviously our captain thought that he was poop in training. you can imagine ameobi being great in 5 aside and to his credit he never missed a pen! but put him on a full size pitch with the expectation he was bambi on ice.
      how bramble ever got a football contact i don’t know, maybe make it as a powerlifter or a boxer but a footballer?! probably cost us about 10 goals a season

  • Phil Yare

    i think if rafa is going to play gayle upfront on his own he may as well not bother playing him because without a ‘big man’ or hes not going to get any opportunities that an orthodox poacher would take advantage of
    even a clown like joselu can benefit from playing with someone like gayle when he put that one on a plate for him v leicester. rafa clearly has went back to basics to avoid leaking more goals
    don’t know what on earth is going on with shelvey as i’ve never seen him play so poor, surely a world class manager can address what he’s doing wrong (red cards seem to be frustration maybe?) you’ve still got to play him though when available because he could still play one pass that could win you the game
