The results of the Newcastle v Stoke 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.
Newcastle created chance after chance before eventually scoring in the 73rd minute, Stoke’s route one attack then became even more direct, if that is possible.
Committing more players in and around Peter Crouch as they launched it into the box, Stoke at last got some joy.
Having had relatively little to do up to that point in terms of shots on goal, Karl Darlow (9.0) then produced two brilliant match winning saves, to get your vote as man of the match.
Yet again, Jamaal Lascelles (8.1) was a rock in front of him, the Newcastle captain getting second highest marks.
Six other players rated 7.0 or better in a very good team display.
The next two highest being the two who combined for the winning goal, a rare start up front seeing Ayoze Perez (7.8) put in a far better performance, whilst Jacob Murphy (7.8) did very well and put in a great run and cross for the goal.
After that, Lascelles’ partner Ciaran Clark (7.4) once again put in a very solid 90 minutes, whilst ahead of them Jonjo Shelvey (7.3) put in arguably his best performance of the season so far.
The other two players to rate above 7.0 were Mohamed Diame (7.2) who is building a little run of creditable performances, whilst DeAndre Yedlin (7..2) once again gave Newcastle an extra cutting edge going forward, as well as doing ok at the back.
Only three players fell below that 7.0 line.
Christian Atsu (6.9) did well up to a point as he moved into a central role but despite getting in good positions he wasted a number of chances.
Javier Manquillo (6.6) put in a steady but unspectacular shift, whilst Matt Ritchie (6.1) had a quiet game on the left.
