Newcastle v Chelsea player ratings from fans – Better late than never
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.
Apologies for our oversight in not publishing these earlier but better late than never…
Four of the starting eleven received a rating of 6.4 or higher, no surprise that they were all players at the back.
Martin Dubravka (6.7) top scored deservedly, could do nothing about either goal.
Then on 6.4 we had three defenders: Yedlin, Schar and Fernandez all sharing that rating.
The other seven players all rated between 5.1 and 5.9, none of them having really poor games but on a day when defence was the overwhelming priority, nobody else really stood out.
Jacob Murphy (5.1) and Ki Sung-yueng (5.2) rated the lowest by fans.
A special mention for Joselu, the sub (6.6) actually getting the highest outfield mark, coming off the bench and scoring that cracking goal.
Below are the ratings as voted by Newcastle fans up to 6pm Wednesday:
