After a 2-2 draw away at Southampton we gave you all the opportunity to once again rate the lads. You guys gave The Beautiful Bald Beast Jonjo Shelvey man of the match giving him a rating of 7.6, and once again Dwight Gayle was the worst rated player with an abysmal 4.77. Joselu also did not fare well with a sad rating of 5.5.

Rob Elliot - 6.1

DeAndre Yedlin - 7.05

Jamaal Lascelles - 7.15

Florian Lejeune - 6.7

Javi Manquillo - 6.5

Christian Atsu - 6.4

Isaac Hayden - 7.3

Jonjo Shelvey - 7.6

Matt Ritchie - 7.5

Ayoze Perez - 7.2

Joselu - 5.75

Mikel Merino (62') - 6.8

Dwight Gayle (67') - 4.77

Jacob Murphy (91') - 5.1

You guys were a little harsh on Joselu, who did score a goal. But other than that your ratings were relatively fair. Fans have consistently overrated Matt Ritchie all season, and that has not changed.

Of course you guys were very active on Twitter. Here are our favorite tweets from game day.

First and foremost, you gotta love the Fun88 account. Easily have been the best shirt sponsor in a while.

This one is just funny

Fans came with the support! (obviously)

This was a great moment from halftime.
