Everton 3 Newcastle 0 – Match ratings and comments on all of the Newcastle United players

3 months ago

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


Dubravka – 7

Dealt with everything thrown at him relatively well and couldn’t do anything about the goals.

Trippier – 4

Steady game up until he threw it away for us.

Lascelles – 7.5

Had a good game all round. So obvious he’s really giving his all out there.

Schar – 7

Looked his usual comfortable self for the most part.

Not his fault but I just feel he was slow getting out to McNeil for their goal.

Livramento – 7.5

Has received a lot of plaudits for his contribution going forward but he’s so good defensively too.

Had a good game again.

Bruno – 8

Calms the whole team and game down in the middle of the pitch.

Gave the type of performance you’d want and expect.

Miley – 7

I’m honestly surprised by how fit he is!

He had an ok game.

Looks really neat with his touches at times and will come good eventually.

Not sure I’d play him Wednesday night (cue the ‘well who else is going to play!?’)

Joelinton – 9

Best player on the pitch.

Almiron – 7

Had a good game but so wasteful in front of goal, he could have had a hat-trick by my count.

Nonetheless, a key player at the moment.

Gordon – 6.5

Just looked like he was trying his best not to get ‘too involved’ at times and that took the edge of his performance.

Wasted a few half chances.

Isak – 5

Anonymous for 99% of the game bar the odd moment.

Doesn’t look fit at all and I suspect if we had any sort of centre forward then he’d still be on the treatment table.


Ritchie N/A

Not on long enough to judge.

Krafth N/A

Not on long enough to judge.

Referee – 1

He had no influence over the result but god they’re so bad.

The standard is at an all time low and it makes football so frustrating to watch it’s quite sad.

Everton fans

You’ve got to laugh. A really really strange group of supporters.

Zero sympathy for the position they are in as most of it is self-inflicted. God help you when beating Newcastle at home is the highlight of your season so far.
