Everton 1 Newcastle 1 – Match ratings of all NUFC players

3 years ago

Everton 1 Newcastle 1  – Wednesday 5 December 7.45pm

We asked Joe Dixon to give us his match ratings after Wednesday night’s match.

Newcastle bouncing back with a battling performance and 1-1 draw against Everton.

Rafa’s team now 14th, four points above the relegation zone.

Dubravka 8 – It was seven for an excellent all round display and then an extra point when making a brilliant point blank save.

Yedlin 6 – A typical spirited performance but occasionally caught out of position and not great in defence.

Fernandez 8 – Another very good game, looked very comfortable. Made a superb block shortly before half-time.

Schar 6 – Did alright, especially when the scousers put the pressure on in the first half.

Lascelles 6 – A bit like Schar, did quite well but Everton still had chances first half.

Manquillo 7 – A big improvement compared to Saturday.

Carried the ball forward well at times, as well as doing alright with defensive commitments.

Ki 7 – Tried his best to keep the team together and the team ticking over but with Everton’s better quality he was forced back most of the time.

Decent free-kick delivery helped NUFC put some pressure on at other end.

Diame 6 – Did OK but game passed him by a bit.

With levels of spending, the NUFC midfield were always up against it when facing Everton.

Murphy 6: Did ok and put in a killer left foot cross for Newcastle’s goals.

Atsu 7: A player who must really annoy a manger.

Usually half-hearted, he instead showed all game commitment in pressurising the opposition and could have won it late on, with only Pickford to beat.

Rondon 7  -Took his goal well and had minimal support most of the game.

Hopefully that goal will have taken his confidence back up to the levels against Bournemouth.


Joselu 5 – Had a minimal contribution and very much a case of weakening the team when introduced.

Perez 5 – Same again, a case of the squad being so poor that a substitution actually seriously weakens the team in most cases.
