Newcastle v Chelsea player ratings from fans – Best of the season!
The results of the Newcastle v Chelsea player ratings by fans.
Always interesting 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.
The Newcastle fans have made this one the performance of the season, surpassing the win over Manchester United in February.
That 1-0 victory over Man Utd saw Newcastle fans give the starting 11 a total of 90.1 in marks out of 10, at an average of 8.19.
Sunday’s 3-0 win over Chelsea has produced a total of 91.4 at an average of 8.31.
It is fitting that joint top of Sunday’s marks are Shelvey and Diame with 9.2, the pair of them having been at the heart of Newcastle’s run to safety after the turn of the year.
Two goal hero Ayoze Perez is next best with 9.1, then Martin Dubravka who had very little to do, but then made two superb saves from Chelsea’s only two efforts on target.
Next up were centre-backs, with Florian Lejeune (8.7) once again outperforming Jamaal Lascelles (8.3), as has been the case in recent weeks.
Then we have Matt Ritchie (8.0), with a very good display as he rounded off a much better second half of the season.
The four other starters also played their part, on a day when nobody had a bad game.
Full-backs Dummett (7.7) and DeAndre Yedlin (7.6) both showing the positive sides of their games, whilst Dwight Gayle (7.5) at last got a goal and Jacob Murphy (7.3) made it.
Below are the ratings as voted by Newcastle fans up to 7.30am Tuesday:
