Sky Sports rank 3 Newcastle United stars in new in-form Premier League players list after Man City draw

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 draw with Manchester City on Saturday, the rankings have now been updated.

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

Newcastle 2 Man City 2

Aston Villa 2 Newcastle 0

Newcastle 2 Bournemouth 1

West Ham 2 Newcastle 3

Newcastle 1 Wolves 1

The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:

As you can see, Saturday’s man of the match Kevin de Bruyne is at the very top.

However, Newcastle United also have three players in the top 50.

Jonjo Shelvey the highest of the trio at number 14, having scored against both West Ham and Man City in this run of games.

Jetro Willems also features at number 27, coming up with a very good display on Saturday and excellent finish for the first goal.

Lastly, Federico Fernandez was again immense and he stands 37th in the in-form ratings.
