Newcastle v Tottenham player ratings from fans – Perfectly sums up the match

2 years ago

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.

I think the fan ratings perfectly sum up the game.

Alan Shearer and many others thought Paul Dummett (9.2) was man of the match and the supporters agree, some brilliant blocks and clearances as Tottenham pressed.

The supporting cast saw three other players get 8.0 or better.

Joelinton (8.2) led the line really well, scored a great goal to win the game and helped his defence out as well.

Fabian Schar (8.1) was back to his very best and showed his defensive talents rather than his ability bringing the ball out of defence.

Whilst Christian Atsu (8.0) had easily one of his best games for the club, laying on the winner and doing well both going forwards and working back, after appearing as an early sub.

Six of the other starters were rated 7.0 or better, reflecting a great team effort.

Dubravka (7.8) did everything asked of him and was solid behind the backline.

Lascelles (7.7) leading  by example at the back, whilst Hayden (7.7) was here, there and everywhere in the middle of the pitch.

Fans appreciate the effort and running with the ball of Almiron (7.5), whilst Longstaff (7.3) and Ritchie (7.3) also put in great shifts.

The only two exceptions were Allan Saint-Maximin (4.9) who wasn’t really on long enough to judge. Whilst Emil Krafth (6.6) is struggling, though he did improve to an extent in the second half.

Below are the ratings as voted by Newcastle fans up to 11.30am Tuesday:
