Newcastle United star at very pinnacle as Sky Sports announce top 50 in-form players
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 matches, which included Newcastle’s Saturday night victory over Southampton, the rankings have now been updated.
Newcastle’s last five PL games have been (working backwards):
Leicester 0 Newcastle 1
Newcastle 0 Palace 1
Arsenal 2 Newcastle 0
Bournemouth 2 Newcastle 2
The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:
When a player is at the very top of these ratings it usually coincides with his club having a host of players in the top 50.
However, on this occasion there is only one other for Newcastle.
Down in position number 32 is Matt Ritchie.
He provided the assist for Perez’ hat-trick goal and also scored that late equaliser at Bournemouth in the first game of the five matches that qualify for the Sky Sports ratings.
