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 home to Bournemouth, the rankings have now been updated.

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

Newcastle 2 Bournemouth 1

West Ham 2 Newcastle 3

Newcastle 1 Wolves 1

Chelsea 1 Newcastle 0

Newcastle 1 Man Ud 0

The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:

 

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

Ciaran Clark soars to number six and is the highest placed of the NUFC quartet after making it two goals in the last two matches when getting Saturday’s winner.

Jetro Willems rises from number 26 to 23 this week, after another very decent display on Saturday.

Whilst Federico Fernandez is up from number 32 to 30, making it two assists and a goal in the last three matches, as he nodded on for Clark to score the winner on Saturday.

The fourth player just creeping into the fifty in 50th place is Jonjo Shelvey.
