You all did some ratings and here they are! Of course everyone’s favorite captain Jamaal Lascelles was your man of the match with an outstanding 9.0 rating. You all were once again very impressed with Mikel Merino’s performance, awarding him a 7.9.

You all were less than impressed with a few players, particularly Jacob Murphy who got one of the lowest ratings of the season from a starting player with an abysmal 5.8 rating. He did not look Premier League ready in his first start looking often a little bit lost on the pitch. He played it safe all match, not giving the ball away unlike a certain Swansea player also making his first Premier League start, but was less than impressive overall. Mo Diame and Dwight Gayle were the only two guys with worse performances than Murphy, especially Gayle who picked up a yellow with in minutes of coming on the pitch. Diame finished the match with a 5.6 and Gayle with a 5.4. Lastly, Isaac Hayden after last week’s brilliant performance, struggled this game. This is something you want to see from one of your first team regulars, but his performance along with Shelvey’s great performance with the U-23’s begs the question: Could we see Shelvey and Merino starting alongside each other this week?
