Newcastle United managed to only secure a point against Cardiff City in their second match of the Premier League 2018/19 season. In a lacklustre performance from both the teams, the Magpies earned a hard-fought draw against the Bluebirds at the Cardiff City Stadium. Brazilian winger Kenedy had the chance to seal all the three points with what was the last kick of the game, but he failed to convert from the spot as Neil Etheridge saved his effort.
This is how the Newcastle United players are rated from their match against Cardiff City.
Martin Dubravka: 7
The Magpies keeper had a good game and made crucial saves. A very relaxed and composed performance from the Slovakian.
Javier Manquillo: 5
Was included as the replacement for injured DeAndre Yedlin. Looked shaky and was substituted during halftime owing to an unfortunate injury.
Jamaal Lascelles: 7
Looked solid from the word go. Didn’t let the Cardiff strikers make their moves.
Ciaran Clark: 6
A composed performance overall from the centre-back. Did well to complement Lascelles.
Paul Dummett: 6
Kept his cool and made essential clearances to help Dubravka keep a clean sheet.
Matt Ritchie: 7
Tried his level best to provide his team with the impetus to roll over the opposition. Picked up a harsh booking.
Jonjo Shelvey: 6
Another solid performance in the midfield from the Englishman. Squandered a good scoring chance from a free kick late into the first half.
Mo Diame: 6
Made some important interceptions and helped his side in retaining possession.
Looked lively on the ball and made a few good runs as well. Was involved in a dirty incident of kicking out at Victor Camarasa but the referee chose to keep the card in his pocket.
Ayoze Perez: 6
Looked sharp on occasions and made a few openings as well but could not deliver the end product.
Not sure why Benitez is going in with him despite having Rondon in the squad. The Spaniard looked utterly out of sorts and had a lacklustre outing.
Issac Hayden 4
Came on to replace Manquillo. Didn’t have the best of games and almost left Kenneth Zohore with an open chance to take the lead but the header went wide.
Yoshinori Muto 5
Could not make any telling impact as a substitute in his first game in the Premier League.
Jacob Murphy 5
Came on for Matt Ritchie but failed to replicate the Scotsman’s precision.
