Newcastle v Tottenham player ratings – The collective fan results after 1-0 defeat
The results of the Newcastle v Tottenham 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.
Quickly becoming a fan favourite, Fabian Schar (7.4) didn’t deserve to be on the losing side. His superb clearance off the line (see above) sealing the top rating.
Two other players managed a 7.0 rating or better.
Salomon Rondon (7.0) once again with the thankless task of playing that lone striker role with little support much of the time. Held the ball up well at times and very unlucky to see his header come back off the post with Lloris well beaten.
As always, Matt Ritchie (7.0) gave it the proverbial 110%. Very good in defence he helped prevent Spurs having much joy down their right side. After a lung bursting run he would have been in on goal when the scores were goalless, only for Perez to elect to shoot himself, Lloris making that shot look better than it really was, with the ball very close to him and a more dramatic save than needed (for the cameras).
On the negative side, Christian Atsu (4.4) hardly contributed. As one of the two players tasked with supporting Rondon, he was badly lacking. Did the basics though in helping to defend which all the team did.
Next lowest was Martin Dubravka (5.1). Set for a very good clean sheet and surely in the top group of ratings from fans, that rare error cost both him and the team.
All of the other six starters rated as having decent games with marks of over 6.0.
Lejeune (6.8) and Lascelles (6.7) making up a trio of central defenders who gave Dubravka excellent protection.
Whilst Sean Longstaff (6.7) yet again looked like a Premier League player more than capable of holding his own.
Perez (6.3) having an ok game where a few times he did the hard work, only for then a poor end product.
DeAndre Yedlin (6.2) was pressed back and plenty of dangerous Spurs crosses came in from that side.
Isaac Hayden (6.1) did the basics but didn’t help the team going forward.
