NEWCASTLE reporter Miles Starforth gives his verdict after the Magpies’ fifth successive derby defeat.

Tim Krul 6: Not at fault for the goal

Ryan Taylor 6: Showed some welcome fight and spirit in trying circumstances

Daryl Janmaat 6: The real leader in United’s team

Mike Williamson 5: Had another difficult afternoon

Jack Colback 5: Fielded at full-back and United missed him in midfield

Jonas Gutierrez 6: Gave everything he had in his last derby

Moussa Sissoko 4: As with previous derbies, he was never in the game

Remy Cabella 5: Had United’s ONLY shot on goal

Yoan Gouffran 4: Completely ineffective. Not nearly good enough (Emmanuel Riviere, 58, 5)

Sammy Ameobi 4: Unlikely to get a new contract on this evidence (Adam Armstrong, 87)

Ayoze Perez 6: Showed flashes of his talent but was starved of the ball – 6
