Sky Sports rank 3 Newcastle United stars in new updated top in-form Premier League players list
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 afternoon win at West Ham, the rankings have now been updated.
The rankings for NUFC players are based on these last five games (working backwards):
West Ham 2 Newcastle 3
Newcastle 1 Wolves 1
Chelsea 1 Newcastle 0
Newcastle 1 Man Ud 0
Leicester 5 Newcastle 0
The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:
As you can see, Newcastle United have three players in the top 50.
All three benefiting from the fact that none of them were involved in that hammering at Leicester.
Jetro Willems the highest placed of the trio at number 26 after he produced the assist for the second goal at West Ham. The Dutchman has started the last four games.
Fernandez is at number 32 after scoring on Saturday from Willems’ assist.
Whilst Ciaran Clark has started the last four games and after scoring the opening goal on Saturday, is now number 37 in this Sky Sports form list.
No surprise to see Leicester players so dominant, scoring 19 goals in their last five matches including 5-0 against Newcastle. The five games producing four wins and just one defeat, an unlucky one at Anfield.
Leicester players filling five of the top six places, seven of the top ten, with our old friend Ayoze Perez at number six.
