Newcastle v Leicester player ratings from fans – Savage

8 months ago

The results of the Newcastle v Leicester 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.

A bit like winning first prize in a beauty contest on Wearside, being Newcastle’s man of the match on Sunday’s efforts will be an equally empty accolade.

That prize does go though to Fabian Schar (3.6), not his best game and he was partly at fault for the third (I think…could have been fourth) goal, but he did battle away on a day when some of his teammates didn’t.

Second best is a seriously lower accolade on this occasion, Martin Dubravka (2.7) with the dubious honour. Should have saved the second goal probably and on one of his best days could have possibly stopped one of the other four, but he wasn’t why we lost – left horribly exposed and a couple of deflections on goals as well.

Looking at the very worst, you have Isaac Hayden (1.8) who was poor in the 43 minutes he was on the pitch and then ensured things would get a lot worse for his team when putting in that  reckless challenge. Some fans felt it was a yellow but regardless, that type of tackle is always going to lead to a possible sending off now.

Hayden only pipped Yoshinori Muto (1.9) as the Japanese international failed to connect with Newcastle’s only chance of the game, which came courtesy of a skewed Hayden shot. Sums up our performance really that this was the best bit.

Emil Krafth (2.0) was his usual poor self, why Bruce instantly dropped Manquillo is anybody’s guess.

Joelinton (2.1) didn’t touch the ball in the opposition half in the first 45 minutes, maybe he did after half-time but I didn’t notice. Total lack of service but his head is going down a bit too easily.

Christian Atsu (2.2) totally anonymous as he is most of the time, whilst  Sean Longstaff (2.3) didn’t exert any control on the game at all.

The other three got slightly higher marks but that counts for little.

A lot of sympathy for Miguel Almiron (2.4) from fans due to Steve Bruce not having a clue where to play him as well as tactics overall but we need a lot more from the Paraguayan regardless.

As for Dummett and Lascelles (both 2.5), a day to forget and chasing shadows, Dummett totally losing Vardy for his headed second.

Below are the ratings as voted by Newcastle fans up to 7am Tuesday:
