The Best And The Worst Newcastle United Players Rated From Their Narrow Win Over Wolves

It was thoroughly professional display from the Magpies who managed a narrow 0-1 victory to rise up to the top of Championship table with a point ahead of the Seagulls and stepped closer to earn a direct promotion to Premier League.

Below are Newcastle’s individual player ratings.

Karl Darlow

Rating: 8

The custodian had an outstanding evening at Molineux Stadium as he managed to keep a clean-sheet. He was good in his outings and composed while punching or claiming Wolves’ efforts.

DeAndre Yedlin

Rating: 7

The United States international showed his physical presence while outmuscling Andreas Weimann and was good going forward. But his failure to track back could have cost the Magpies if Wolves had utilised their opportunities.

Jamaal Lascelles

Rating: 7.5

He was calm and composed at the heart of Magpies’ defence and showed his aerial presence by making crucial clearances. He set up the only goal of the game for Mitrovic as well.

Ciaran Clerk

Rating: 8.5

He was the standout performer for Newcastle this evening and helped his side to earn a hard fought clean-sheet by leading the back-line and pulling off two majestic blocks in the closing stages.

Paul Dummett

Rating: 6.5

The left full-back had a quite outing as he focused on defensive duties rather than going forward.

Jack Colback

Rating: 7.5

Colback had an impressive first half as he worked his socks off to create chances from midfield and also providing cover to the back-line whenever they were exposed. He also went close early on to break the deadlock but was denied by Wolves custodian Carl Ikeme. Was a little rusty towards the closing phase of the game.

Jonjo Shelvey

Rating: 8

The Englishman had a massive impact from midfield as he controlled the game by helping his side use the width of the pitch and played some fine through passes and crosses for the attackers.

Mohamed Diame

Rating: 6.5

Did a fair job in the box to box role. Used his physique to snatch possession and drill through the Wolves defence.

Matt Ritchie

Rating: 6.5

The former Bournemouth man had a quiet evening as he failed to pose any attacking threat he normally does. However, he made his presence known by helping his back-line throughout the game. Was clumsy at times, otherwise a decent game in an alternative role.

Yoan Gouffran

Rating: 6.5

The hardworking winger had a quiet outing as well. However, he too helped his defence when required and made a few good runs.

Aleksander Mitrovic

Rating: 7

The Serbian forward scored from yards to earn his side three massive points out of a tricky away fixture. Though he had a mixed outing as he could have been sent off for raising studs despite being on a yellow and was subbed off and replaced by Christian Atsu at half-time.


Christian Atsu

Rating: 6 

Atsu played the entire second half time but failed to involve himself and have the desired impact.

Daryl Murphy

Rating: 6

Came on as a late substitute in place of Matt Ritchie. His notable contribution was to hold the ball up before forcing a corner right close to half-time.

Ayoze Perez

Rating: N/A

Came on 88th minute replacing Mo Diame and was booked for delaying a Wolves corner. Played too little to warrant a rating.
