Community player ratings from a massive defeat at St James Park

This game just misses the dubious honor of dipping below 4.0 on the overall average rating, and Raheem Sterling is a massive part as to why that didn’t happen. His first-half goal from a direct fee-kick was a thing of beauty, and on a day when most others had an off-day (including Cole Palmer), Sterling still brought the heat!

Inconsistent he may be, but Sterling remains our purest match-winner, and game-changer as well


When in doubt, vote Enzo.


Sánchez faced 14 shots, five on target, and let in four goals. Not exactly a recipe for greatness, but there wasn’t much he could do about any of them.
