Newcastle v West Brom player ratings results from NUFC fans – The people have spoken
The results of the Newcastle v West Brom 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.
Taking the man of the match award was a Newcastle United defender, no surprise there considering how little the Magpies threatened going forward.
In Federico Fernandez’ absence, Ciaran Clark (7.4) has been NUFC’s best defender in recent times, once again very good on Sunday.
Only two other platers rated 6.0 or better and this pair also playing at the defensive end of the pitch.
Martin Dubravka (6.4) dealt with everything well and gave the defenders confidence, maybe deserved a higher rating with a clean sheet.
Paul Dummett (6.3) also had a decent match on his return, apart from one stand out moment when Maitland-Niles strolled past Dummett and into the box in the second half, luckily his pass cut out in front of goal.
At the lowest end of the spectrum, four players stand out, one in particular.
On his return to the team Jeff Hendrick (2.2) was at his anonymous worst, rarely seen and when he was spotted, doing nothing of any consequence to positively affect the game.
Emil Krafth (4.1) once again struggled and when getting forward, his delivery into the box was consistently poor.
Joelinton (4.3) as ever reluctant to go in the box, never mind bust a gut to score a goal, three goals in 59 Premier League appearances is a quite incredible stat for Mike Ashley’s £40m+ record signing.
Jonjo Shelvey (4.7) put a bit of effort in against Wolves last weekend but was back to strolling around once again, his workrate nowhere near good enough.
That leaves four players with below par performances of 5.something, with Isaac Hayden (5.5) not at his best in this relegation clash.
Joe Willock (5.4) carried a lot of the responsibility for trying to get a goal in Steve Bruce’s woeful match plan and rarely looked a threat, though he did put in a couple of decent runs from deep carrying the ball forward, which you would never ever see from the likes of Shelvey, Hayden and Hendrick.
Lascelles (5.3) put in a steady performance at the back, whilst Ryan Fraser (5.3) was badly handicapped by the fact there were no strikers in the box for him to target, his own display less than average still though.
As an amusing aside, when it came to the subs, I’m not sure how anybody could decide a rating for Andy Carroll (2.8), as he was given only 20 seconds and didn’t even touch the ball.
