Newcastle United: Willock, Schar and Krafth struggle vs Liverpool

Newcastle United: Willock, Schar and Krafth struggle vs Liverpool -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United‘s impressive home run was ended by Liverpool as they lost 1-0 in the Premier League at lunchtime.

Eddie Howe’s team were just not quite at it, as they gave up far too much possession and conceded 24 shots at their goal in front of their supporters at St. James’ Park.

As such, The Transfer Tavern have now used statistical experts SofaScore to analyse who the three worst performers (to have played ta least 45 minutes) were for the hosts on the day. Could this trio be worried about their futures in the XI?

Emil Krafth

Given a 6.5 overall rating, Krafth ranked as the North East club’s third-worst player, and it’s hard to imagine him earning any significant playing time once Kieran Trippier is fit.

Where will Newcastle finish in the Premier League?

The Sweden international lost out on five of his duels, and failed to block any shots, while he was dribbled past a game-high three times, and made no key passes, crosses or accurate long balls.

He was also guilty of losing possession ten times, and gave one foul away.

Fabian Schar

Schar ranked as the Tyneside outfit’s second-worst performer with a 6.3 rating.

Losing possession to James Milner in a tackle which led to Naby Keita’s goal in the first half, the central defender lost the ball nine times in total, and also didn’t manage to make a single tackle.

Joe Willock

Willock was given a 6.2 rating, and so ranked as the Magpies’ worst player.

The former Arsenal midfielder lost four duels, and also recorded no shots on goal, successful dribbles, clearances, interceptions, tackles or key passes and gave the ball away seven times, getting dribbled past once too.
