The results of the Newcastle United v Manchester United 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.
Sunday’s top star man for Newcastle fans….step forward, making his debut, Martin Dubravka.
Making his first start, supporters rated the Slovakian goalkeeper a very very high 9.4 on average, a well earned man of the match accolade.
Not far behind, Jonjo Shelvey (9.3) put in by some distance his best display of the season and was top outfield player.
Five other Newcastle stars recorded marks of 8.1 or higher, as a real team effort defeated Man Utd.
Third highest was Shelvey’s central midfield partner Mohamed Diame (8.7), continuing his new-found excellent form.
Jamaal Lascelles (8.6) was next highest, closely followed by partner Florian Lejeune (8.4), another player having his best ever game for Newcastle. Helping to set up the goal and putting in numerous blocks/challenges, including THAT one from Sanchez.
Paul Dummett (8.3) was absolutely solid once again, whilst Matt Ritchie (8.1) found form and his first goal of the season.
The remaining four players all scored 7.0 or higher, as nobody had a bad game.
Least best were the front two, though it was always going to be a hard shift up front.
Ayoze Perez (7.0) was rated lowest by fans, as his lack of pace isn’t ideally suited with the team trying to counter-attack.
Dwight Gayle (7.2) might feel a little aggrieved not to be rated higher, a very clever assist for the winner, won that penalty that wasn’t given, cleared a couple off the line at the other end…
Also rated at the lower end were Kenedy (7.5) who wasn’t able to have quite as much influence as in his first two matches but still did well, whilst DeAndre Yedlin (7.6) put in a decent shift at both ends.
Below are the ratings as voted by Newcastle fans up to 7pm Monday:
