So, how Newcastle players performed in this game against Forest? Here are the Newcastle player ratings vs Nottingham Forest in their 3-2 win in the Premier League.

Newcastle player ratings vs Nottingham Forest – Premier League

Let's start the Newcastle player ratings vs Nottingham Forest in their 3-2 win in the Premier League with the goalkeeper of the Magpies, Martin Dubravka (5.5/10) as he didn't perform to the level that would cement his place as the number one for the Magpies.

Newcastle right-back Kieran Tripper (7/10) was fantastic in this game. That cross for Buno's first goal was exemplary. But, the performance of both the centre-back of the Magpies, Fabian Schar (6.5/10) and Sven Botman (5/10) will raise a lot of questions in the minds of fans as both seem to struggle against the pace of Elanga. The same will go for the left-back Dan Burn (4.5/10).

The midfielders were not up to the mark for Newcastle in this game as Forest overrun them all the time. Sean Longstaff (5/10) was invisible in this game as well as Lewis Miley (5.5/10) on whom Newcastle fans have high hopes. The Star of the match is surely Burno Guimaraes (8/10) as he scored a brace to get the Magpies over the line. However, he failed to control the midfield battle in this game.

The forward line for Newcastle was a mixed bag as Anthony Gordon (7/10) once again impressed with his raw pace. He was a menace for Forest defenders. It was a quiet game for Callum Wilson (5/10) as he couldn't convert the chances he got, and also got booked. For Miguel Almiron (4.5/10). this will be a forgetful game as he struggled on the right.

When it comes to the substitutes for the Magpies, Harvey Barnes (6/10) came on for Almiron and gave stability on the right side of the pitch. Tino Livramento (6/10) came on for Miley in the 81st minute to provide the much-needed stability at the back when the Magpies needed to defend well. Emil Kraft (N/A) came on for Gordon in the 90th minute and didn't have much chance to do anything,

Manager Eddie Howe (7/10) will be happy with the win but he will feel the injury concern for Callum Wilson. Playing Dan Burn when he seems not good enough to play for the Magpies is stubbornness. He did well with the substitutions and got the job done.

Newcastle player ratings vs Nottingham Forest: Dubravka (5.5/10), Tripper (7/10), Schar (6.5/10), Botman (5/10), Burn (4.5/10); Longstaff (5/10), Miley (5.5/10), Guimaraes* (8/10); Gordon (7/10), Wilson (5/10), Almiron (4.5/10); Substitutes – Barnes (6/10), Livramento (6/10), Kraft (N/A); Manager – Howe (7/10)
