7 Elliot: Did what he had to do when called upon but couldn’t prevent the winner as he missed a cross from the right;

6 Yedlin: Looked to get involved in the final third whenever he had chance and defended well enough

6 Lascelles: A confident display at the heart of the defence from the skipper to keep the Clarets at bay

7 LEJEUNE: After a shaky start he grew into the role and made life difficult for Barnes and Co

6 Manquillo: Didn’t do anything wrong and defended well enough to keep Gudmundsson quiet until the goal;

5 Diame: Gave the ball away a couple of times early on and, despite improving, needed to influence things more

6 Shelvey: Saw plenty of the ball but not enough in dangerous areas to make a difference like he is capable of doing

5 Ritchie: Far too quiet by his high standards on a night when the Magpies needed his quality

5 Perez: Came closest to opening the scoring after the restart but then lost the ball in build up to the winner

6 Atsu: The liveliest Newcastle player in the first half even if he didn’t get involved after the restart;

5 Joselu: Worked all night again and did what was asked even if he never looked like scoring


Hayden (for Perez 75)

Murphy (for Ritchie 79)

Gayle (for Diame 88)

(not used): Darlow (gk), Clark, Gamez, Saivet.

MAN OF THE MATCH: JACK Cork – the boss man in the centre of the midfield much to the frustration of the Magpies.
