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.

    I was there yesterday and I have to say I thought Yedlin was our worst player by a mile. Underhit passes, mistimed tackles and poor control.

    I’m usually a fan of his, but he was poor yesterday.

    Thought Diamé had arguably his best game for Newcastle yesterday, same with Murphy’s second half performance.

    Lascelles and Clark have a fantastic understanding that you only really get when they’re playing directly in front of you.

  • 1957

    As the captain’s performances improve week on week Ritchie seems to be in a consistent decline this season

  • Rich Lawson

    Darlow had a great game against Stoke and deserves to play against Swansea but with Woodman on the bench yesterday wouldn’t be surprised to see him start against Luton ?

  • Salty

    The West Ham result was a surprise given the team put out and this one was just as much a surprise with no physical presence up front against a big Stoke side. Really need to build on this with a win v Swansea. I’m expecting to see a lot of fringe players in the Luton game, depending on injuries it could be
    Gamez Mbemba Lejeune Haidara
    Hayden Saivet
    Murphy Merino Aarons

    • nevfur

      Same team I was expecting with Sterry on standby for Gamez if still injured

  • 5floorshigh

    some very generous marks for yet another poor team performance. Every player needs to sharpen up, far too casual/lazy all over the pitch…….Lascelles and Clark maybe good defenders but their ball distribution is diabolical, maybe down to lack of movement from midfield or maybe down too the ‘get rid’ mentality that seems to run thru the whole team. Hoping the win installs more confidence, a win against Luton and then move on and start playing with purpose…..but will Rafa allow it ?
