Newcastle player ratings: Attack

LW: Anthony Gordon (7.5/10) – The 22-year-old showed maturity in this game which Newcastle fans would have enjoyed. He was a livewire for the Magpies and a key part of Eddie Howe's pressing system against Villa. He was a pivotal part of Newcastle's attack in this game.

  • SUB: Emile Krafth (NA/10) - Eddie Howe subbed Anthony Gordon for Emile Krafth in the 99th-minute. So, he didn't play long to create an impact in this game.

ST: Alexander Isak (6.5/10) – Started the game wonderfully and could have got a goal too. But, the most disappointing thing is that he had to come off due to an injury before the first half. Now, it is a concern for Eddie Howe because Callum Wilson is also injured and he didn't buy a striker in January.

  • SUB: Miguel Almiron (7/10) - Eddie Howe had to bring him on after Isak came off due to his injury in the 43rd minute. After that, Almiron played a brilliant game as he was pressing high up the pitch. Traveling fans loved his performance as he was giving everything for the badge.

RW: Jacob Murphy (7/10) – It was a disappointing performance from Jacob Murphy against Fulham in the FA Cup. However, he did play a decent game against Villa as he was pressing well. But, out of the three forwards, he was the weak link for sure.
