Krul

Agonisingly close to saving the penalty and made a terrific double save in the second half from Sessegnon and McClean.

Committed far too many fouls in the first half but upped his game after the break.

Conceded the penalty that gave Sunderland the lead and often struggled against the lively Bendtner.

Cleared countless deliveries into the box in a commanding performance.

Was hauled off at half-time after a limited influence on the game.

A mixed bag of quality regarding set pieces but provided plenty of endeavour throughout.

Cabaye

Had a great chance to win it at the death but took too many touches and blew the opportunity.

Tiote

Combative as ever, but let himself down after his reaction to the confrontation with Sessegnon.

Gutierrez

Boisterous and adventurous on the wing.

Ba

Came alive in the second half but never really challenged Mignolet.

Completely anonymous.

Outstanding as his skill and trickery left Sunderland in danger frequently.

Another body added late on as Newcastle piled forward.

Mignolet

Expert penalty save to deny Ba, having also parried Ben Arfa¿s vicious shot wide with a solid parry.

Had a tough time against Gutierrez but chased the winger with commitment.

A solid game from the centre-back.

Was left trailing in the wake of Ben Arfa far too frequently in the second half.

Larsson Off '73

Put in a solid shift without ever really expressing himself creatively.

Could have easily been sent off for his early tackle on Tiote, was otherwise combative and vigilant as ever.

Gardner

Looked frustrated and edgy for most of the game.

McClean

Full of pace down the wing and was admirable when forced to track back.

Sent off for a silly elbow on Tiote. He had been lively up until then.

Led the line by example, working his socks off all afternoon. Deserved his goal.

Let Ameobi in at the near post. Really poor from the veteran.
