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:

sky sportssky sportsLast 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.

    The stats for the Bournemouth game will be what put Perez in there – he made the most successful passes and most tackles on our team.

    • Rich Lawson

      Did he really ? Tackle,Perez, not normally two words that fit in the same sentence ? Good on him if your right.

      • Toon Arnie

        I thought he was ordinary. Better than the usual level we get from him but arguably the lowest scorer out of 10 in the whole team ? I think Muto offers a bit more overall.

  • Kenny

    (Perez) He was no more than ok against Bournemouth,
    afraid that describes his 4 yrs at Newcastle & the fact that Rafa has been trying to replace him since the summer of 2016 only to be black balled by King Rat

    • Carverlier football

      I remember his first season when we all thought we’d got a bargain. I can’t decide if our expectations of him have risen or if he’s got worse (or at least less consistent)…
