Norwich 0 Newcastle 3 – Match ratings and comments on all the NUFC players

4 weeks ago

We asked Jonathan Drape-Comyn to give us his match ratings and player comments after Norwich 0 Newcastle 3.

Another victory for Eddie Howe and his players.

Joelinton and Bruno Guimaraes with the goals.


Dubravka – 8

Obviously didn’t have much to do but made one fantastic save from a free kick and caught plenty of crosses into the box.

Krafth – 7

Solid game.

Didn’t have much to do defensively and did get off to a bit of a dodgy start but settled down and had a good one.

Lascelles – 7

Wasn’t fantastic and another one who got off to a bit of a dodgy start!

Got himself together though and was helped by Burn… and the fact we were 3-0 up.

Burn – 8

Mountain at the back. Pukki didn’t get a look in.

Targett – 9

He’s fantastic as well.

Honestly, doesn’t put a foot wrong.

Such an upgrade from any other left back we have had over the past 10 years.

Bruno – 10

What a player man.

Head and shoulders above every player on the pitch.

What a goal. Great ball for the 2nd goal as well.

Longstaff – 7

Thought he did alright.

Kept a hold of the ball well and worked his backside off too!

Willock – 7

Don’t think he had the impact he would have hoped for but did well nonetheless.

ASM – 7.5

Much better performance.

Looks like he thrives more in the ‘free’ role that he was accustomed to under Bruce.

Murphy – 7

One of his best performances for us (says a lot considering I’ve only given him a 7).

Joelinton – 9

Heeeeee’s Braziliaaaaaan!

Brazil call up incoming?


Miguel Almiron N/A

Don’t remember him touching the ball.

Matt Ritchie N/A

His last game?

Unless we decide to throw the Burnley game to send Everton down…

Dwight Gayle N/A 

Not on long enough to comment.
