The results of the Newcastle v Swansea 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.

When you are playing rock bottom Swansea in a must win game, maybe the last person you hope/expect to be man of the match is Paul Dummett…

The fact he was Newcastle’s top man with an average mark of only 6.3 does tell you a lot though.

To Dummett’s credit he did all the basics well, kept Nathan Dyer quiet, and even made a couple of incisive moves forward – but he had little to beat from his teammates.

Substitute Joselu (6.1) was the only other player supporters rated 6.0 or above as his goal saved Newcastle from defeat.

Six players rated 5.0 or above with Jamaal Lascelles (5.9) putting in another decent, but no better, performance. He and Ciaran Clark (5.3) certainly have to share the blame for an unmarked Ayew heading the opening goal.

Karl Darlow (5.8) did well to stop Ayew’s first effort but could do nothing about the follow up, though he (Darlow) almost presented Bony with a late winner.

Mohamed Diame (5.7) was Newcastle’s best midfielder as he put in plenty of effort and tackles, whilst DeAndre Yedlin (5.6) never gives up the ghost.

Ayoze Perez (5.9) played a part in the equaliser and as usual produced a few nice touches without really imposing himself, whilst Christian Atsu (5.1) was poor.

This leaves us with three other starters, three players who were the key offensive players in the Championship.

Jonjo Shelvey (4.9) was poor and is yet to really dominate any Premier League match, he compounded his disappointing display by refusing to shake Rafa’s hand after being subbed.

As for Matt Ritchie (4.2), he may have five assists from mainly set-pieces but in open play he has really struggled going forward.

Missing a trio of presentable chances, Dwight Gayle (3.5) once again failed to put the ball in the back of the net. Other games he has the excuse of poor service but against Swansea he had the chances.

    Boycott United merchandise until fatty leaved…. Nothing from Sports Direct or BetVictor!

    • MichaelMaximusMoose

      I would never ever buy anything from Fatso

      • Leazes

        Glad to hear it

      • Wor Lass

        It wouldn`t fit! ( I hope )

  • Paul Patterson

    He’s a good left back and works hard. It’s more damning that a left back is man of the match in the first place.

    • mentalman

      we could do with a clone of him to play rb

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    steady player, not the best but he does a job & always give you 100%.
    Dummy deserves a bit of respect

    • anyobrien

      Totally agree great pro

  • 1957

    I’m not a fan of Dummett but he had a decent game yesterday and I thought he was our best player. I thought Ritchie and Gayle were both atrocious, how Ritchie stayed on baffled me especially given Murphy’s improved form of late

    • mentalman

      he’s being saved for the next game

  • hetonmag

    Well those mark’s scupper the Shelvey lovers on here, still you have to make allowances that he’s two steps in front of the rest of the team.

    • Dave Pattinson

      I’m giving it to Mo Diame for that save. Brilliant!

  • Nut

    Fact of life performances on the pitch are prone to fluctuations, you pay more money for players who are consistent performers and more still for highly rated persistently consistent performers.

    Every game we play someone will perform better than another. It’s not the marks they get on one game but the performances through a season that count. Anyone can have a good or a bad game.

    Consistency is what we need.

  • mentalman

    I saw darlow getting a hard time for yesterdays performance , personally I thought he did well and made the right decision with the narsingh chance he cleared the ball enough to stop a certain goal without taking out the player and his clearance allowed the defenders to set up on the line and clear the danger

    • Mitros gotta start

      Yeah….if a miracle happens and rafa is allowed to strengthen the team goalkeeper should be very low on the list of positions that need looking at

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    Diame cannot tap a ball pass a ball and looks like a drunk in the Big Market or a boxer on the robes. Rafa spent ten million on Merino and prefers Diame amazing and he wants more money of Ashley.

    Strange ratings. Darlow’s first save from Ayu was almost Gordon Banks class and he got his hand to the second header. Would be an 8 for me. Perez was magnificent, man of the match for me.
