While there were not many positives in the performance against Brighton, there were a couple of outstanding moments. One was the return of Andy Carroll, and the other was the goal-line clearance by Fabian Schar to rescue a point for Newcastle.
Due to his reliable performance on Saturday, the Swiss defender has won the poll as Newcastle’s best player against Brighton. Of the 1,126 total votes, Schar collected 415 of them for 37%.
It was actually a fairly close race as second-half substitute Allan Saint-Maximin had 350 votes for 31% of the total votes. Allan provided Newcastle with renewed life in the twenty minutes he was on the pitch.
These two players were the clear choices as no one else came even close. It was a dismal performance from the team, and hopefully, we will see a much better display at Leicester City.
