Only Jesus ranks above Bruno Guimaraes – It’s official!

4 weeks 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 this latest round of Premier League matches, which included Newcastle United’s win at Norwich City, the rankings have now been updated.

Newcastle’s last five PL games have been (working backwards):

Norwich 0 Newcastle 3

Newcastle 1 Crystal Palace 0

Newcastle 2 Leicester 1

Newcastle 1 Wolves 0

Tottenham 5 Newcastle 1

The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:

As you can see, only (Gabriel) Jesus ranks above Bruno Guimaraes and it took four goals on Saturday for the Man City striker to end the weekend above the Newcastle star.

Bruno Guimaraes has been Newcastle’s man of the match in all of these most recent five PL games and has become ever more influential in terms of goal threat, scoring both goals against Leicester, supplying the assist for the winner against Palace, then that really cute chip against Norwich for the third goal.

Bruno G now with Liverpool in his sights…

You then have Martin Dubravka placed number 24, up 47 places. Three clean sheets in the last four matches and only one goal conceded in the last six and a half hours of football he’s played.

Not far behind the NUFC keeper is defensive rock Dan Burn, the Geordie defender is number 29, up 21 places.

What a superb signing Matt Targett has been, the loan star now at number 32 and up six places.

After playing so well against the dangerous players both Leicester and Palace have got, it was a quieter game for Emil Krafth on Saturday, but another very good display takes the Sweden international up eight places to number 50.

Three other Newcastle United players make the Sky Sports top 100 form players, with Miguel Almiron at 59 (down 16), Allan Saint-Maximin 62 (up 70) and Fabian Schar 89 (down 44).
