Sky Sports Top 50 form players – Two Newcastle United unsung stars featuring

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 draw at Wolves, the rankings have now been updated.

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

Wolves 1 Newcastle 1

Tottenham 1 Newcastle 0

Newcastle 2 Man City 1

Newcastle 3 Cardiff 0

Chelsea 2 Newcastle 1

The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:

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

Great to see Fabian Schar at number 15 in the in-form list, retaining last week’s position after another very good defensive display against Wolves and the assist for Hayden’s goal. Guessing he would have gone up a fair few more positions if not for that last minute goal that was conceded at Molineux.

Schar didn’t play at Chelsea but has been excellent in the other four games, certainly Newcastle’s man of the match against Cardiff and Tottenham, as well as being very good against Man City and Wolves.

Salomon Rondon at 37 and Matt Ritchie at 46, made it into last week’s Sky Sports top 50 form players but they drop out this week.

However, there is another Newcastle star who has joined Schar on this list.

Getting his chance due to injury, Isaac Hayden has played in all five of these games and thanks to a very good midfield performance and goal, he comes into the form list at number 27.
