Newcastle have been knocked out of the 4th round of the FA Cup after a disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Watford.
The visitors took the lead after 60 minutes when Andre Gray slotted past Freddie Woodman.
Isaac Success sealed the win in the 90th minute after they caught Newcastle out on the counter.
Rafa Benitez’s side rarely threatened the Watford goal, despite the Hornets making 11 changes to their line-up.
A Javier Manquillo effort cleared off the line was the only time they really tested Heurelho Gomes who didn’t need to make a single save.
It is now 13 years since the Magpies progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup and will be disappointed with their lackluster display after making six changes themselves.
Newcastle will now have their sole focus on the league and staying in the division after another failed cup run.
Here’s how we rated the Newcastle players from the game:
Freddie Woodman: 6
Could’ve done better with the first goal but coped well on the whole.
Javier Manquillo: 6
A threat going forward but with a lack of end product, caught out on the counter for the second.
Federico Fernandez: 7
A solid display and rarely troubled.
Jamaal Lascelles (C): 7
Showed good strength and was composed on the ball.
Ciaran Clark: 5
Caught out for the first goal, the most vulnerable of the centre-backs.
Matt Ritchie: 6
Watford enjoyed most joy down his side but was decent going forward.
Isaac Hayden: 5
Gave away needless fouls and was caught in possession too often.
Sean Longstaff: 6
Won back possession in dangerous areas and looked composed with the ball.
A very quiet first-half followed by a sloppy second. One to forget for the Brazilian.
Jacob Murphy: 7
A bright spark in a drab game and was a constant threat down the right.
Struggled up-front again with a lack of support. Surprised he lasted the 90 minutes
Christian Atsu (sub): 6
Made the biggest impact of the subs but with poor delivery.
Ayoze Perez (sub): 5
One chance to level the scores looped over.
Fabian Schar (sub): 5
Strange final change from Benitez, not enough time to make an impact.
