Sky Sports rank 5 Newcastle United stars in new in-form Premier League list after Sheffield Utd win

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 these midweek matches, which included Newcastle’s win on Thursday night, the rankings have now been updated.

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

Sheffield United 0 Newcastle 2

Newcastle 2 Man City 2

Aston Villa 2 Newcastle 0

Newcastle 2 Bournemouth 1

West Ham 2 Newcastle 3

The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:


As you can see, man of the moment Jonjo Shelvey is in seventh.

Scoring that killer second last night after the game saver on Saturday, plus that winner at West Ham.

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

The superb Martin Dubravka at number 14 after that deserved clean sheet against the Blades.

Then the ultra reliable Federico Fernandez is in at number 34, a real rock at the back.

Jetro Willems put in another great shift defensively last night, as well scoring that quality goal against Man City, to make it at number 41.

Whilst just sneaking into the top 50 is Allan (the leap) Saint-Maximin after that towering header against Sheffield United that set NUFC on their way.
