Sky Sports Top 50 form players – Fabian Schar is one of three Newcastle United stars to make the list

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 the weekend of matches, which included Newcastle’s defeat to Wolves, the rankings have now been updated.

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

Huddersfield 0 Newcastle 1

Newcastle 1 Wolves 2

Everton 1 Newcastle 1

Newcastle 0 West Ham 3

Burnley 1 Newcastle 2

The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:


As you can see, Newcastle United have three players in the Top 50.

Both Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez have been in the top 50 for a number of weeks.

Rondon was no.40 last week but after his winner at Huddersfield moves up to 24 in the Sky Sports Power Rankings.

Whilst Ayoze Perez stays in the 50 but drops from 38 to 36.

Great though to see Fabian Schar recognised at number 45 in the in-form list.

He missed Wolves through suspension but played in these other four of the five qualifying matches, NUFC winning two and drawing one, losing the other.

Overall, the Swiss international has featured in seven PL matches and Newcastle have picked up 14 points in them, whilst in the other 10 there has only been two points gained.
