Newcastle United dropped yet more home points, despite an outstanding home display against Leeds.

But how did their players rate? Here's our take...

Yoan Gouffran

Yoan Gouffran

Newcastle XI

Karl Darlow - Made one top class save in the opening 45. Little to do in second... 7

Vurnon Anita - Got forward at every opportunity, turned over defensively once or twice, but overall very solid... 6

Jamaal Lascelles - Thought he'd won it with a header but went to sleep for the equaliser... 6

Chancel Mbemba - Looks great on the ball but cannot deal with any high balls... 6

Paul Dummett - One of his best displays in a black and white shirt. Brilliant at both ends... 7

Jonjo Shelvey - Did not control quite as well as he did in first meeting between these two... 6

Isaac Hayden - What a return. United missed him when he was out, and when he went off the park towards the end... 8

Matt Ritchie - Literally never stops grafting for the team. Captain material this lad... 7

Ayoze Perez - Hit and miss just about sums it up for him. Brilliant on the break, though, when the game is stretched... 6

Yoan Gouffran - Much more involved than he was at Sheffield Wednesday. Still not quite the forward influence United need wide... 6

Aleksandar Mitrovic - Hold up play was excellent. His display deserved a goal... 7


Jack Colback (for Hayden 80) .... N/A

DeAndre Yedlin (for Ritchie 84) ... N/A

Mo Diame (for Perez 90) ... N/A
