Newcastle United entertained Wolverhampton Wanderers at St. James’ Park earlier this evening as they hoped to secure a win in front of their home fans in the Premier League. The Magpies made a good start to the game and scored the opening goal in the 26th-minute courtesy of Alexander Isak’s effort. The Tyneside outfit managed to get to the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Hwang Hee-chan equalised for the visitors in the 70th minute before Miguel Almiron restored Newcastle’s lead just nine minutes later. The contest ended with Eddie Howe’s men earning a narrow 2-1 victory at home.

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

GK: Nick Pope – 7/10

The English keeper made a few crucial saves at the back and did enough to restrict the opposition to just one goal.

RB: Kieran Trippier – 6.5/10

He was far from convincing when defending inside his half but was a threat going forward. Trippier ended the game with an assist to his name.

CB: Fabian Schar – 6.5/10

Schar made a lot of important clearances at the back and was a threat at the other end of the pitch as well.

CB: Sven Botman – 6.5/10

He did his best to keep things solid at the back and was accurate with his passing.

LB: Dan Burn – 7/10

Burn made a positive impact at both ends of the field but gave away the ball cheaply at times during the game.

CM: Sean Longstaff – 6/10

He struggled to get a foothold in the game and produced an uninspiring display at the centre of the park.

CM: Bruno Guimaraes – 7/10

The Brazilian talent got stuck in with some solid tackles and had a few lively moments in the final third. He was unfortunate to hit the post.

CM: Joe Willock – 8/10

He did his fair share of defending and was a constant menace in the opposition half. Willock has got an assist to show for his efforts.

RW: Jacob Murphy – 6.5/10

Murphy had some bright moments in the game but didn’t do enough to find the back of the net.

ST: Alexander Isak – 8/10

He was a real threat in front of the opponent’s goal and made some good runs with the ball. Isak scored Newcastle’s opener in the 26th minute.

LW: Allan Saint-Maximin – 7/10

Saint-Maximin made a couple of exciting runs with the ball and engineered some meaningful openings for his teammates.


RW: Miguel Almiron – 7/10

Almiron ended up netting the winning goal in the 79th minute.

ST: Callum Wilson – 6/10

The English striker offered very little after coming off the bench.

LW: Matt Ritchie – N/A

Ritchie hardly had any time to influence the game.
