How did the players fare in Newcastle United's 1-1 draw with Watford?

NEWCASTLE (3-4-3):

7 Dubravka: Made excellent late saves from Success and Pereyra and was rock-solid when gathering balls into the box

7 Schar: Claimed his fifth Newcastle goal with a neat finish and poses a threat whenever he breaks out of defence

7 Lascelles: Battled away gamely even though his face was covered in blood in the closing stages – always leads from the front

6 Dummett: Was unfortunate that he deflected Cleverley’s early shot to Hughes and was generally solid thereafter

6 Krafth: Looks at home on the right of the back five and his delivery from the flank helped set up Schar’s equaliser

8 HAYDEN: The pick of the home team as he covered a lot of ground at the heart of midfield – is developing into a top-class Premier League midfielder

7 Longstaff: Gave the ball away too much in the first half, but stuck at it and was an influential presence after the break

7 Willems: Has recovered from a sticky start to his Newcastle career to establish himself in the team – boasts lost of energy

5 Almiron: His effort can never be faulted, but his lack of composure in the final third is now a major concern – wasted two great openings

6 Joelinton: Proved a handful for the Watford defence, even if he never really looked like scoring – has slipped seamlessly into life in the Premier League

7 Atsu: Has added something since returning to the team, and set up two excellent opportunities for Almiron

Man Of The Match: ISAAC HAYDEN – His assist for Schar’s equaliser might have been fortuitous, but he was the best midfielder on display and is now a huge part of Newcastle’s first-choice starting XI.
