Sky Sports verdict on Newcastle United after Huddersfield win

2 years ago

Sky Sports have looked at the performances of all the Premier League clubs in this latest weekend of games.

The broadcaster giving a grade for each team’s display and a write-up on the performance.

Newcastle United ranked as having put in the joint best performance of the weekend and have been rated as an ‘A’.

Crystal Palace and Watford sharing top billing after their respective 4-1 and 5-1 away victories.

The broadcaster declaring ‘The good times are back on Tyneside’ as they namechecked Sean Longstaff and Miguel Almiron as stand out performers.

Sky Sports Verdict – Newcastle United (A):

‘The good times are back on Tyneside.

That is now three home league wins in a row for Newcastle, who could not buy a home win earlier in the season.
The football, at times, regardless of the meagre opposition, was free flowing, with everyone getting involved.

Newboy Miguel Almiron was superb, young Sean Longstaff continued to look at home in the Premier League, while Salomon Rondon was again on the scoresheet.

Things are on the up in the north east.’

Whilst for Huddersfield, Sky Sports described their 2-0 defeat:

‘They started brightly at St James’, but a needless red card, out of nowhere, cost Huddersfield dear. After that, they never really had a hope of getting something out of the encounter.

Their situation is looking more and more desperate. They surely are getting to a point where this season can be written off, with the focus on next season. No win since November says it all.’

Sky Sports grades on Premier League performances this past weekend :

(A+) Newcastle United, Crystal Palace, Watford

(A-) Burnley

(B+) Arsenal, Bournemouth

(B) Wolves, West Ham, Man Utd

(C) Liverpool, Southampton

(D) Cardiff, Fulham, Huddersfield, Tottenham, Leicester
