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 Burnley, the rankings have now been updated.
Newcastle’s last five PL games have been (working backwards):
Burnley 1 Newcastle 2
Newcastle 1 Watford 0
Newcastle 0 Brighton 1
The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:
As you can see, Newcastle United have an impressive seven players in the Top 50, with Salomon Rondon the highest at number 17 in the Sky Sports Power Rankings.
Ayoze Perez at 27 and then Federico Fernandez at 37.
Martin Dubravka is number 39, with then Fabian Schar (42), Ciaran Clark (44) and Matt Ritchie (49) completing the Newcastle contribution.
With the most recent match the most important, the fact Newcastle are one of only there clubs to win all of their last three matches obviously is a big factor.
Whilst with three wins and a goalless draw and only three goals conceded, that has helped push Dubravka and three defenders into the top 50.
Liverpool (eight) are the only club to have more players in this latest up to date top 50.
