Newcastle United locked horns with Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium earlier today as they hoped to secure all three points on the road. The Magpies made a decent start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 35th minute courtesy of Miguel Almiron’s decent finish. The Tyneside club went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Chris Wood doubled Newcastle’s advantage in the 58th minute before Joe Willock put the contest to bed just four minutes later. Romain Perraud scored a late consolation goal for the Saints with a great finish but Bruno Guimaraes put the icing on the cake for the Magpies when he scored in injury time. The contest ended with Newcastle earning an impressive 4-1 win away from home.

Let’s take a look at how each Newcastle United player fared during the clash against the Saints.

GK: Nick Pope – 6.5/10

The English keeper made a handful of solid saves at the back but won’t be happy after conceding so late in the game.

RB: Kieran Trippier – 8/10

He gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and picked up an assist as well during the game.

CB: Fabian Schar – 6.5/10

Schar made a lot of crucial clearances at the back but was a bit sloppy with his passing.

CB: Sven Botman – 6.5/10

He earned the ball back twice and cleared his lines when required.

The English talent anchored the midfield well but struggled to influence the game in the final third.

The Brazilian sensation had a few bright moments in the game and got his name on the scoresheet with a brilliant strike in injury time.

ST: Callum Wilson – 6/10
