How did Newcastle United's players fare in their 4-4 draw with Luton Town

NEWCASTLE (4-3-3):

4 Dubravka: Should have done much better with the parry that led to Luton’s second, even if he did make a crucial late stop

7 Trippier: Was at the heart of Newcastle’s thrilling second-half recovery – ended the day with a goal and an assist

6 Schar: Had a tough day defensively, but brought the ball out superbly at times in the second half

4 Botman: Struggled to cope with Morris’ physical threat as Luton’s forwards caused a succession of problems

3 Burn: Had an extremely difficult afternoon, with Ogbene’s pace causing him major problems

8 LONGSTAFF: Scored Newcastle’s two first-half goals and made a series of breaks into the area

6 Guimaraes: Was off the pace for an hour, but sparked into life late on with two brilliant crosses

7 Miley: Played some excellent passes, and won the ball to help set up Barnes’ late equaliser

6 Murphy: Created some problems in the final third, but wasted a late chance of a winner by shooting wide

6 Gordon: Helped set up Longstaff’s second with a shot that was saved, but failed to reappear for the second half

5 Almiron: Wasn’t really a factor in a game that saw him switched from the left to the right


6 Wilson (for Gordon, 46): Was certainly up for it when he came onto the field in the second half

7 Barnes (for Almiron, 63): Couldn’t have asked for a better return as he drilled home Newcastle’s fourth goal

6 Livramento (for Burn, 63): Couldn’t really exert any control in the closing stages
