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.

Two weeks ago there were an incredible seven NUFC stars featured in the top 50 Sky Sports Power Rankings, with Ayoze Perez in second place.

However, with defeat at Everton, Ayoze Perez dropped to fifth last week and overall there were five Newcastle players in that top 50.

Now after a second consecutive defeat, Ayoze Perez finds himself in 24th spot.

Two other Newcastle players are also still just hanging in there this week, Matt Ritchie is 43rd, whilst Florian Lejeune is number 50.

Without a goal or a point in these last two matches, Newcastle now end the season with a trio of difficult matches – away to Watford and Spurs, before then ending the season home to Chelsea.
