The new Sky Sports Power Rankings have been published today.
The Power Rankings methodology reflects a player’s performance over the last five Premier League matchdays by awarding points to players for 32 different stats.
A heavier weighting is given to the most recent match in descending order to the fifth last one, with the intention of showing who is most in form.
After this latest round of matches which includes Newcastle’s 3-0 win over Southampton, the rankings have now been updated.
Newcastle’s last five PL games have been (working backwards):
Newcastle 3 Southampton 0
Liverpool 2 Newcastle 0
Bournemouth 2 Newcastle 2
Newcastle 1 Man Utd 0
Crystal Palace 1 Newcastle 1
The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:
As you can see, Kenedy features at number 19 in these latest Sky Sports Power Rankings after his two goals on Saturday and a run of good to very good displays..
Matt Ritchie has seen a very welcome return to form of late, scoring the winner against Man Utd and excellent finish against Southampton, he also got an assist at Bournemouth for Dwight Gayle’s opening goal in the 2-2 draw.
Nice to see NUFC three players in these latest Sky Sports Power Rankings, with at number 33, Jamaal Lascelles.
The Newcastle Captain very consistent and has marshalled his defence superbly, especially in these key consecutive home wins, clean sheets against both Man Utd and Southampton.
