Rating the Newcastle United Players in the 2-1 Loss to Fulham

Hatem Ben Arfa's return was encouraging, but Newcastle were unable to get their first away win of the season.

Going into this game, Newcastle United were without an away win in 2012, while Fulham were without a win of any kind in seven games. The stage was set for a fixture that promised a battle rather than entertainment, but the spectators were actually treated to an exciting, open fixture that could have gone either way.

Newcastle had snapped their four-game losing streak in the Premier League only to lose to Bordeaux in the Europa League, and Fulham overran them in the first half. The Toon were lucky to go into half time only a goal behind, but came out strongly in the second half to dominate possession.

However, it was not to be their day and Fulham came away with the points on the back of an impressive midfield and a strong performance from Dimitar Berbatov.

Let's move on to rating the Toon players in what turned out to be another disappointing night for fans travelling from Tyneside.
