NUFC player ratings vs Liverpool – Two 8s, a few 7s, several 6s and the odd 5

What a gutting end to what should’ve been a big win, as Newcastle conceded two late goals against Liverpool’s 10-men at St James’ Park.

Here’s the ratings the morning after a devastating afternoon:

Nick Pope – 6 – Made a good early save to deny Diaz, was quick off his line and had mixed success when coming out for corners. Not much he could do about Nunez’s two goals.

Sandro Tonali – 7.5 – Showed his quality and composure on the ball and was dogged off it, battling for loose balls and covering lots of ground down our right. Baffled to see him come off.

Bruno Guimaraes – 6 – Started well with some classy touches, neat passing and pressing out of possession, but faded in the second half and gave the ball away in the lead up to their winner.

Joelinton – 8 – Had an off night at Man City but was back to his dominant best here. Snapped into tackles, gave Liverpool midfielders no time to settle and was missed in the latter stages when he was forced off with a knee problem.

Miguel Almiron – 6 – Forced Alisson into a brilliant first half save and hit the post in the second 45 at the end of a lovely run. However, a few too…
