Sky Sports rank 2 Newcastle United stars in new updated top in-form Premier League players list

11 months 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 matches, which included Newcastle’s Monday night defeat to Aston Villa, the rankings have now been updated.

The rankings for NUFC players are based on these last five games (working backwards):

Aston Villa 2 Newcastle 0

Newcastle 2 Bournemouth 1

West Ham 2 Newcastle 3

Newcastle 1 Wolves 1

Chelsea 1 Newcastle 0

The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:

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

Ciaran Clark drops to number 35 after Villa, having been previously as high as six when making it two goals in two matches when getting the winner against Bournemouth.

Federico Fernandez also stays in the top 50 after Villa at number 44, is drops from 30 on the previous listing. Fernandez had two assists and a goal in the three matches before Villa.

Jetro Willems and Jonjo Shelvey drop out of the list of form players altogether.
