Newcastle United v Manchester United player ratings from fans
The results of the Newcastle United v Manchester United 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 rare top spot for Christian Atsu (6.7) as he got into some great positions and had some decent play overall – but just no end product.
After that, we are looking at a lot of hard work but mediocrity at same time.
Eight of the other ten starters got marks in the range of 5.3 to 5.9.
Best of these was Fabian Schar (5.9) who did ok at the back and his distribution was generally good.
Dummett (5.8) and Paul Dummett (5.8) were committed, whilst Diame (5.7) and DeAndre Yedlin (5.6) put plenty yards in.
At the lower end of that mediocrity were Rondon (5.4) who had precious little service and Lascelles (5.4) who was a bit reckless with his challenges at times.
Meanwhile, the usually ever reliable Martin Dubravka (5.3) made the mistake for the first goal and was marked down accordingly.
The two at the very bottom were Isaac Hayden (4.7) who looks very limited at this level, whilst Ayoze Perez (3.2) put in yet another anonymous contribution.
Below are the ratings as voted by Newcastle fans up to 5.30pm Friday:
