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 rounds of matches 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 weekend’s latest round of matches the rankings have now been updated, though the eight clubs that played before the international break see their players having a big advantage, as it is Premier League rounds of games (the weekend of Sat 17 and Sun 18 March was seen as a PL round of games, despite majority of clubs not playing PL games due to FA Cup)  – so if you don’t play then you only have the other four previous rounds that score.

Newcastle’s last four PL games that qualify (working backwards):

Newcastle 1 Huddersfield 0

Newcastle 3 Southampton 0

Liverpool 2 Newcastle 0

Bournemouth 2 Newcastle 2

As you can see, Kenedy features at number 24 in these latest Sky Sports Power Rankings, his assist on Saturday adding to the two excellent goals he scored against Southampton.

Joining the Brazilian in these latest rankings is Ayoze Perez, his winner against Huddersfield helping to propel him into the top 50 at number 45.

  • Paul Patterson

    Perez has done really well over the last few games, but so have Shelvey, Diame, Ritchie, Dummett, Lascelles, Lejune and Dubravka. It’s a team game, but the one player that has made us tick, is Kenedy. He MUST be signed and I would start negotiations now while the managerial position is uncertain at Chelsea . .

    • Leazes.

      Chelsea manager uncertain…..really… Pardew will apply for sure?

      • Paul Patterson

        I don’t think they need a tea boy . .

      • Rich Lawson

        Quite rightly,he knows London well(took West Ham and Palace to the Cup Final !!) forget about Charlton,just a blip on anotherwise blameless (always) career.He would do well to watch the canteen food tho’ if he upsets the Russian in charge. ”Just pop down to Gregg’s John”

  • Leazes.

    So how do you interpret that Graham?

    You have to go down this list to the forty-fifth place before you come across a United player, so what does that tell you son?

    • Rich Lawson

      And Kennedy drops down,what do you make of that Graham ?

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    Perez only one of two players in the rankings what will the Mag and Jonathan say it’s fixed and he is only worth 3.40 at best.
