Krul

Did well when called upon which, for obvious reasons, wasn't too often.

1 6.2 6

Debuchy

Offered plenty going forward and just enough defensively.

3 6.8 7

Williamson

Handball in the build-up to Newcastle's equaliser, and nothing to do otherwise.

1 6.6 6

Coloccini

Solid if unspectacular. Dealt with Crouch well in the air.

1 6.7 6

Santon Off '61

Similar to Debuchy, but less effective in attack.

Anita Off '45

Anonymous in a midfield battle which never really unfolded.

2 5.6 6

Sissoko

Should have scored, and looked clumsy at times.

5 5.9 6

Cabaye

Took his goal very well and created chances throughout the game.

Ben Arfa

Only blemish on his game was the lack of a goal, but a stunning performance certainly covered it up.

5 8.2 9

Remy

Two goals for the striker, but he looked poor aside from that.

Gouffran Off '72

Hard-working performance capped off with a goal.

Cisse On '72

Scored from the spot, but should've had another.

Haidara On '61

Provided some fresh legs as Newcastle closed out the win.

Ameobi On '45

Just what Newcastle needed as his physical presence created problems.

Sorensen

One penalty save and one mistake for the five goals balances itself out.

Cameron

As per most of Stoke's players, couldn't really have done more for the cause.

Shawcross

Standout performer for the visitors.

Wilson

Debatable sending off, and contained Newcastle beforehand.

Pieters

Silly foul to concede a penalty, and little more he could do otherwise.

-2 3.8 6

N'Zonzi Off '72

Did all he could as Stoke succumbed eventually.

Whelan

Unlucky to be sent off, but shouldn't have given Atkinson the choice.

Walters

Wasteful when given the chance.

Adam

Could have scored on two occasions, and ineffective otherwise.

Unfortunate to be sacrificed after his stunning opener.

Isolated figure up front, but couldn't do much more really.

Wasn't on long enough to make a difference.
