Mohamed Salah edges out Ayoze Perez
The new Sky Sports Power Rankings have been published and Mohamed Salah has crept ahead of Ayoze Perez.
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 matches, which included Newcastle’s Saturday night draw at Brighton, the rankings have now been updated.
Newcastle’s last five PL games have been (working backwards):
Brighton 1 Newcastle 1
Leicester 0 Newcastle 1
Newcastle 0 Palace 1
Arsenal 2 Newcastle 0
The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:
Despite scoring his fifth goal in the last three games, Ayoze Perez was knocked off top spot.
Mohamed Salah with two goals and an assist against Huddersfield, enough to relegate Perez to second spot in the in-form top 50.
Last week Matt Ritchie was number 32 in the list of in-form players but now Ayoze Perez is the only one.
