Pulled off a series of good saves to keep his side level in the first half. With Norwich under-performing, he was their best player by far.
A shaky performance from Bassong. He often looked lacklustre against his former side, failing to clear his lines with a number of unconvincing clearances. Struggled to cope with Newcastle's pace on the break.
Struggled to cope with Remy's pace but remained solid at the back despite his team being well below-par.
A poor performance from the Swede. Was constantly chasing Hatem Ben Arfa's heels.
Struggled to cope with Sammy Ameobi's pace and did not the join the attack as much as he would have liked.
Another poor performance from Fer. Booked for a late challenge on Ben Arfa. Wasteful on the ball and struggled to implement himself on the game in the middle of the park.
Poor performance from Johnson in the centre of the park which culminated with him being dismissed, along with Loic Remy, late on.
After playing so well against Hull, it says a lot about Snodgrass' mentality that he could be so woeful tonight. Constantly gave the ball away and his deliveries into the box were poor.
Lively start from Pilkington. Caused Debuchy no end of problems early on, but faded as the game wore on. Replaced by Nathan Redmond with 20 mins remaining.
R. van Wolfswinkel
Easy to see why he hasn't scored since the opening day of the season. Barely involved and doesn't look able to play in the same side as Hooper. Withdrawn for Johan Elmander with 20 mins remaining.
Wasteful in possession. Again struggled to link up with van Wolfswinkel, but did force a good save from Krul just before the interval. Livened up after Elmander's introduction. Had Norwich's best opportunity when he hit the bar from close-range. Taken off after Johnson's red card as Norwich looked to hold onto a draw.
A quiet night's work for Krul. Apart from a fine diving save to keep at Hooper's long-range effort, had little else to do.
Kept van Wolfswinkel quiet on a night where Norwich barely threatened. A solid performance from the centre back.
Another positive display from Santon. Repeatedly frustrated Robert Snodgrass and repeatedly looked to join the attack.
Rarely troubled by Hooper. Solid at the back and cleared his lines well on the rare occasions when required to defend.
Struggled to cope with Pilkington early on but quickly settled. Joined the attack well and solid in defence but in truth he was rarely troubled.
Solid in the heart of midfield. The touch-tacking midfielder admittedly had little to cope with up against a struggling Fer and Johnson partnership.
Average performance from Sissoko. Barely broke into a sweat as Newcastle bossed midfield. Was booked for impeding John Ruddy.
Like Tiote, Anita was key to Newcastle bossing midfield. However, with his side chasing a goal, offered little in the way of an attacking threat.
H. Ben Arfa
Wasted a glorious chance to give his side the lead, clearing the crossbar from close range. A solid enough performance, though, as he grew into the match. Needs to find more consistency if he is to ensure Newcastle don't miss Cabaye.
Floated in and out of the match but looked dangerous on the ball. Repeatedly worried Russell Martin with his pace. Presented Ben Arfa with a golden chance to give Newcastle the lead, only for the Frenchman to miss the target when unmarked.
A mixed performance from the Frenchman. Very unlucky not to score as he hit the woodwork a remarkable three times. Looked a constant threat for Newcastle and on another day would have gone home with the matchball, but instead was sent off late on for a silly clash with Bradley Johnson.
