How Newcastle United's players rated against Southampton

Newcastle United player ratings: Ayoze Perez 'sublime' as THREE players earn 8s in Southampton triumph

Newcastle United continued their fine form of late with a victory over Southampton - but how did their players perform?

A hat-trick from Ayoze Perez proved enough for the Magpies, despite Mario Lemina's fine strike after the interval. And it's no surprise to see Perez rate highly in our player ratings, while several other members of Rafa Benitez's squad come in for high praise. Scroll down to see who shone - and struggled - for Newcastle in their victory over Southampton:

1. Martin Dubravka - 6
