Sky Sports Top 50 form players now features 4 Newcastle United stars

2 years ago

The new Sky Sports Power Rankings have been published.

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 included Newcastle’s win over Bournemouth, the rankings have now been updated.

Newcastle’s last five PL games have been (working backwards):

Newcastle 2 Bournemouth 1

Newcastle 1 Watford 0

Southampton 0 Newcastle 0

Newcastle 0 Brighton 1

Man Utd 3 Newcastle 2

The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:

Last week, Newcastle United only had one player in the Top 50, with Kenedy at number 47 in the Sky Sports Power Rankings.

He retains his place and moves up a couple of spots to number 45, having laid on an excellent cross for the winning goal on Saturday.

Newcastle though now have four players in total in the new Top 50 in-form players.

Martin Dubravka excellent again on Saturday, comes in at number 41. making some great saves and he has two clean sheets in these past three games.

More of a surprise maybe to see Ayoze Perez coming in at number 35 this week, he obviously scored the winner against Watford, but had no more than an ok game against Bournemouth.

No surprise though to see Salomon Rondon come straight in at number 15, man of the match and his two goals winning the game. He also put a great shift in last week against Watford.
