Burnley 1-4 Newcastle player ratings: Jacob Murphy's 10/10, Wilson excellent & Livramento shines

Newcastle United put in one of their best away performances of the season after sweeping Burnley aside at Turf Moor.

The Magpies took the lead after absorbing some early pressure from Burnley in the opening exchanges as Callum Wilson netted his second goal in as many matches. Wilson struck after Isak's effort had been beaten away by Arijanet Muric on 19 minutes.

United doubled the lead 35 minutes when Sean Longstaff's well struck finish from a Jacob Murphy cross put Howe's team in full control. With five minutes of the first half left Anthony Gordon trickled the ball into the path of Bruno Guimaraes who fired home in the box and made it 3-0.

Newcastle's Alexander Isak missed a penalty early in the second half after being denied by Muric but did make it 4-0 three minutes later with a tap in.

Here's how the players rated overall:

Martin Dubravka 8

Deserved a clean sheet after keeping Burnley at bay early on. But was denied by late Ritchie mistake.

Tino Livramento 9

Another candidate for man of the match for some. Some surging runs and looked the business down the right-hand flank as he caused his fair share of problems.

Emil Krafth 7

Stepped into the heart of defence calmly. Made fair share of clearances.

Dan Burn 7

A steady show from the skipper. An important steal for goal number three to release Gordon.

Lewis Hall 8

Put in an very good display defensively and offensively. Some excellent tackles.

Jacob Murphy 10

Had a big part in the first goal and then weighed in with two other assists. Close to the form he was in before being hit by autumn shoulder injury. Had 45 touches and always looked a threat. Man of the match.

Bruno Guimaraes 8

Pinged the ball around for fun and weighed in with a goal. Had 99 touches in all.

Sean Longstaff 8

Had a hand in the first goal and grabbed one himself. Looked to be back in a confident frame of mind.

Anthony Gordon 9

Surely will be on the plane with England this summer. Caused plenty of problems won a penalty and grabbed an assist.

Callum Wilson 9

Looked very good as he edges back to full fitness.

Alexander Isak 8

A missed penalty but made up for it with a poacher's strike.


Elliot Anderson 7 (for Murphy 69)

Did OK. Picked up a booking.

Harvey Barnes 6 (for Wilson 69)

Joelinton (for Longstaff 77)

Miguel Almiron (for Isak 77)

Matt Ritchie (for Gordon 85)

*Subs must play 15 minutes to get a mark.

Here's how the players rated in the first half:

Martin Dubravka 8

Some important blocks in the opening stages.

Tino Livramento 8

Has been a thorn in the side of the Burnley defence.

Emil Krafth 7

Has stepped into the centre of defence with the minimum of fuss.

Dan Burn 7

A comfortable enough opening 45 minutes. An important steal for goal number three to release Gordon.

Lewis Hall 8

Some really good work down the left-hand side. Involved in the bulk of the attacking play.

Jacob Murphy 9

A massive presence down the right with a big part in the first goal and then a fine assist for Longstaff.

Bruno Guimaraes 8

Two in two games now for Bruno. Looks like he's enjoying himself.

Sean Longstaff 8

A hand in the opener and a well-taken second to put Newcastle in full control.

Anthony Gordon 8

Slipped the ball fantastically to Bruno for the third and killer goal.

Callum Wilson 9

A goal and some great hold-up play so far.

Alexander Isak 8

Not on the scoresheet yet but has had Burnley on their toes.
