One 9/10, two 8s and one worrying 4 – NUFC player ratings vs West Ham

Saturday produced a great game for the neutral. St James’ Park is delivering a lot of entertainment this season, but unfortunately for us, it is often a tough watch as a fan. There is no doubting the hunger within the squad to deliver results, but there are still issues plaguing our performances.

We managed to fight back from 1-3 down yet again, but this time, we went one better and got the winning goal. After so many suffered injuries and Anthony Gordon got sent off, we will have a patched up squad for Tuesday. However, we got the three points and we live to fight another day.

Martin Dubravka – 4 – It was another poor performance from the goalkeeper. He is currently the biggest issue we have, as the defenders have no confidence in him and it is impacting us across the pitch. The first two goals both showed the lack of confidence in his own game and we will keep conceding goals until Nick Pope is back.

Jamaal Lascelles – N/A – The captain went off with a knee injury early in the game. The defence fell apart in the minutes following his departure. It was a massive blow.

Fabian Schar – 5 – There have been better games from Schar. Although the second West Ham goal was controversial as Schar was down with a ‘head injury’, it was quite clear that it wasn’t a serious issue. Michail Antonio bullied him until he went off the pitch and the centre back will want to move on from this one.

Dan Burn – 5.5 – There will continue to be criticism directed at Dan Burn. He was better when he came inside to play centre back and hopefully he will stay there for the next few matches. In the first half, he made one very good challenge to deny Kudus when he was going…
