The response from Newcastle fans to what they watched on Sunday.
I think these collective NUFC supporter ratings give a very fair reflection of what happened on Sunday.
A clear man of the match seeing Allan Saint-Maximin (8.7) rated easily the highest, scored the opening goal and easily Newcastle’s biggest threat throughout.
There then followed an even split, five of the other starting eleven getting 7.0 or higher, the other five starters below that mark.
Matt Ritchie (7.8) rated second highest, a typically energetic performance and he got an assist for ASM’s goal and then lashed home the second goal from outside the box.
Isaac Hayden (7.4) was dominant in midfield, whilst Miguel Almiron (7.3) got an assist for the third goal and also played in Joelinton in the first half, when the Brazilian completely messed up a great chance.
Federico Fernandez (7.2) was United’s best defender as is so often the case.
Martin Dubravka (7.0) looked comfortable throughout and not a great deal to do, as he kept a clean sheet in his 79th consecutive PL start, that makes it around five and a half hours of PL football since he last conceded a goal.
The very lowest rating is Danny Rose (5.5), maybe a bit harsh but he was poor at times in the first half when any threat from the away team came from his side of the pitch.
Defenders Manquillo and Lascelles both rated by fans at 6.6, putting in steady performances, whilst Joelinton also gets the same rating as he missed that sitter in the first half but to his credit kept on going. Got a goal at last as he took advantage of the extra space as Sheffield United tired and became a little ragged and demoralised in the closing stages.
Jonjo Shelvey (6.9) was pretty quiet and steadily went about his job, maybe more disciplined and hard working than normal.
