Newcastle v Everton player ratings from fans – Results maybe include a few surprises
The results of the Newcastle v Everton 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.
Two players clear at the top.
Ayoze Perez (8.8) and Salomon Rondon (8.3) turning the game around in the final 25 minutes with the help of their teammates.
An assist and two goals for Perez, a goal and a real battling display from Rondon, the two of them never giving up.
Only two others of the starting eleven were rated 7.0 or higher by the fans.
Isaac Hayden (7.2) picking it up after the break following a first half where Newcastle had been second best in midfield.
Whilst Miguel Almiron (7.0) never stopped running and chasing down, getting his reward when a 30 yard shot was too much for Jordan Pickford and he only parried it to Perez for the goal that brought it back to 2-2.
If you only watched the highlights and not the full match, you might be surprised at the relatively low marks for most players.
However, in truth Newcastle were really poor in the first half and indeed struggled to create clear chances in the second until Rondon and Perez linked up beautifully for the first NUFC goal on 65 minutes. Only the Rondon chip that went just past the post had previously threatened after the break.
The last 25 minutes plus injury time was a massive improvement though and indeed two subs got the joint third highest fan ratings.
Paul Dummett (7.3) doing well when replacing the injured Lascelles at half-time, whilst Jonjo Shelvey (7.3) didn’t appear until 79 minutes had gone, but reminded us of his passing ability as he pushed the team forward.
As for the starters, four more of them got 6.0 or better.
Martin Dubravka (6.5) was left exposed for both Everton goals but maybe could/should have done better when parrying the low cross that went straight to Richarlison for the second goal.
Lejeune (6.3) and Schar (6.1) recovering from a collectively poor defensive display in the first half to improve after the break, whilst Matt Ritchie (6.0) did better when pushed forward as Rafa resorted to a 4-4-2 but undoubtedly marked down due to that terrible penalty.
That leaves three starters and a sub who all scored under 6.0.
Yedlin (5.9) suffering with the rest of the defence in that first half, same with Lascelles who got the very lowest fan rating.
Whilst Ki (5.6) contributed very little and same for Kenedy (5.5) who got the final 20 minutes or so.
