Newcastle v West Ham player ratings results – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

2 years ago

The results of the Newcastle v West Ham 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.

A bit of a case of the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to the fan ratings this time.

Newcastle well beaten by the final whistle and the supporter marks reflecting that.

Little doubt who was best for Newcastle, easily the top performer being Ki (6.8) in midfield. Kept trying to drive the team on, even though those around him were generally not up to it on the day.

Only three other players got reasonably respectable scores.

Martin Dubravka (5.7) left one on one far too many times and though he made one excellent save when Anderson was through, good finishing left him with little chance on the three goals.

Federico Fernandez (5.6) was the only defender holding it together on Saturday as those around him struggled.

Matt Ritchie (5.6) as regularly happens was the first to be subbed, a puzzle when he was actually one of the better players. Strange as well with him being suspended on Wednesday for Everton.

As for those who had poor/bad games, you had another four starters who rated above 4.0.

Fabian Schar (4.8) was at fault certainly for the first and third goals, whilst DeAndre Yedlin (4.5) was given a very tough time by £40m signing Felipe Anderson.

Salomon Rondon (4.3) put in the effort but struggled to make any impact, whilst Kenedy (4.2) didn’t have one of his better games.

That leaves us with three other starters.

Ayoze Perez (2.2) as is often the case, at the very bottom of the fan ratings. Had a shocker with the best chances falling to him and wasted.

Javier Manquillo (3.4) struggled throughout at the back, whilst Mohamed Diame (3.6) was totally ineffective as the visitors played through Newcastle’s ranks.

As for the subs, Jonjo Shelvey (3.8) tried to get on the ball but had little movement ahead of him, whilst Joselu (3.0) and Atsu (2.7) offered absolutely nothing off the bench.

Below are the ratings as voted by Newcastle fans up to 11.30am Monday:
