Sky Sports Power Rankings – Reveal their Newcastle United player of the season
The Sky Sports Power Rankings are published after each round of Premier League matches.
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.
However, they also keep count during the whole course of the season, to then give end of campaign figures to show who has performed best over the whole 38 matches.
These are the top 50 for the 2017/178 season, according to the Sky Sports Power Rankings:
As you can see, Newcastle are one of six Premier League clubs not to have a player in this top 50.
Whereas the likes of Huddersfield Brighton, Palace, Stoke and West Ham, are represented.
Putting a positive spin on that, maybe it is further proof of what a team effort it as been at Newcastle United, rather than just relying on one or two stand out performers.
However, they have also produced a lost of the top player at each club over the course of this 2017/18 season in the Sky Sports Power Rankings:
As you can see, Ayoze Perez is rated the top Newcastle star with 37,770 points, some four thousand points short of making the top 50.
His end of season form has pushed the former Tenerife player right up this list, though more importantly helping Newcastle to get to safety with a month of the season still to go.
Perez scored six goals in his last seven Premier League starts, including the two on the final day that helped beat Chelsea.
