The results of the Newcastle v Fulham 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.

In a desperate match, Newcastle failed to have a single effort on target, whilst Fulham rarely threatened either, so candidates for man of the match were a bit thin on the ground…

Almost by default, Martin Dubravka (6.1) gets it for Newcastle. He was once again very decent with what little he had to deal with apart from when caught in two minds near the end, Mitrovic almost catching the keeper in possession inside the box, the Slovakian international simply lucky that Mitro somehow failed to connect with the ball.

Only four other Newcastle players managed the faintest hint of respectably, scoring 5.0 or higher.

Paul Dummett (5.3) doing relatively ok on his return, whilst Jamaal Lascelles (5.2) was shaky at times but made a valuable block towards the end, then a last ditch tackle in the final seconds that prevented what looked a certain goal.

Ki (5.2) was the best of a bad bunch trying to move the ball forward, then we had Salomon Rondon (5.2) fighting a lone battle up front.

In terms of the very lowest marks we had the two players who were supposedly giving Rondon the closest support.

Both woeful on the day, Christian Atsu (3.5) was just beaten by Ayoze Perez (3.3) when it came to being the very weakest in the team.

As for the other four, they struggled to contribute in any significant way.

Schar (4.8) slightly better than the other three, as Manquillo (4.4) did little to suggest he should have been selected ahead of Yedlin, whilst Diame (4.4) was poor once again in midfield and Ritchie (4.4) looked uncomfortable playing as a fifth defender.

  • Paul Patterson

    How Perez remained on for the full match is a mystery..

    • Rich Lawson

      He lay down and nobody cared enough to carry him off.

      • Peaky

        He’s still there I believe…😂🤣

        • Kenny

          The Kop will wave a hanky and Perez will go down,

        • Rich Lawson

          Seemed like an eternity v Wolves !!!

    • Kenny

      I cry when i see his name on the team sheet, why is the Japanese lad not playing.

      • Paul Patterson

        Don’t know but Perez should have come off with twenty to go ..

      • mentalman

        Protecting him against injury for the asia cup

    • Themoscow72

      He is good that is why..

  • Kenny

    Shocking to say the least, Atsu, Schar, Manquillo, Perez, Diame should be nowhere near a start & i`ve always backed Rafa 110% but he needs to give his head a shake.
    we play the bottom club at home & he plays 5 at the back,
    Wtf is going on.
    Next up the Glory boys in red who are the best attacking team in the premiership.
    If the match isn`t over in the first 25 minutes i`ll go T total for a month.
    With a bit of luck i`ll be to p1$$ed on Boxing Day to care.

    • Themoscow72

      Think we will win two one Perez and Rondon the scorers and follow it up with a two nil win at Watford. Due a win at Anfield can feel it in my bones.
      Merry x mas to all on here and I mean all even Jezza, Wezza and Leazes.
      Just finishing work now and off for a few Stella’s with fellow optimists.

      • Kenny

        The only 3 things that gives me headaches, Drink,
        Newcastle Utd & YOU.

        • Paul Patterson

          All the evidence suggests a 4-0 defeat or similar ..

          • Kenny

            I would think so Paul.

      • Mike

        wot are you drinking can I have some…..3 defeats comin up

        • Paul Patterson

          There’s optimism and delusional. Nobody can be optimistic going to title chasers with our side.
