Newcastle v Watford player ratings results from NUFC fans – First time ever 3 way tie for MOTM

3 weeks ago

The results of the Newcastle v Watford 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.

For the first time ever in the time we have been using this interactive ratings system, we have three NUFC players tied for man of the match.

Sean Longstaff (7.2) putting in a very good performance and topping that off with that excellent long range goal.

Then Allan Saint-Maximin (7.2) who should have racked up at least two or three assists, if it hadn’t been for the failings of others in front of goal after he’d set them up.

Steve Bruce desperately wants to make out that this match was overwhelmingly Newcastle on top BUT the fact that Karl Darlow (7.2) shares top billing, sums up just how much of a threat Watford were still allowed to be. The keeper doing very well in only his second game back in the team, left badly exposed by those in front of him for the goal.

As for the weakest in the team, Joelinton (5.3) was yet again zero threat to the opposition goal despite claims by some fans that he did some decent stuff away from goal…that is now 75 Premier League appearances and only six goals.

Ciaran Clark next lowest, wasn’t too bad at the back but seemingly marked down after failing to convert a couple of decent chances at the other end, especially one where only six yards out he put his header wide after easily beating Danny Rose in the air.

Isaac Hayden (6.0) returned to midfield but was a bit anonymous, certainly outshone by Sean Longstaff.

Elsewhere in the team, both Miguel Almiron (6.8) and Javier Manquillo (6.7) put in very decent shifts.

Whilst Federico Fernandez (6.4) perhaps deserved a higher mark as he once again reminded us that with his leadership and quality, Lascelles should never be playing ahead of him.

Matt Ritchie (6.1) battled away in defence but I thought his set-piece delivery was poor in this match.

Whilst finally, Joe Willock (6.8) could have potentially been man of the match in an all action display of powerful running. However, he failed with a couple of very decent chances – one a superb save by Ben Foster, whilst at the other end he was the one who totally failed to track Sarr for the equaliser.
