Miguel Almiron and Sean Longstaff share man of the match top rating from Newcastle fans

8 months ago

The results of the Newcastle v Huddersfield 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.

Sharing top billing are men of the moment, Sean Longstaff (8.7) and Miguel Almiron (also 8.7).

Then another two players were rated 8.0.

Florian Lejeune was comfortable at the back and on top of that repeatedly hit sensational long cross-field balls to get Newcastle on the attack.

Joining him is goalscorer Salomon Rondon, who also led the line superbly, although he won’t want to remember that header he missed right in front of goal just before half-time.

On a day when nobody played badly, all the other seven starters were rated 7.0 or higher by supporters.

Matt Ritchie (7.6) excellent again at left wing-back, whilst Almiron’s presence appeared to inspire Ayoze Perez (7.6), the Spaniard playing much better and getting his fourth Premier League goal of the season.

Three players rated at 7.3, as Longstaff’s midfield partner Isaac Hayden put in another excellent sift. Fabian Schar was very good once again, whilst Martin Dubravka picked up his eighth clean sheet of the season.

Completing the picture are Jamaal Lascelles (7.1) who strolled through the game, whilst DeAndre Yedlin (7.0) gave it plenty of energy up and down the right hand side.

Below are the ratings as voted by Newcastle fans up to 9pm Monday:
