Sky Sports Top form players – Only Son and De Bruyne keep Newcastle United star off very top spot

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 midweek of matches, which included Newcastle United’s win over Crystal Palace, the rankings have now been updated.

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

Newcastle 1 Crystal Palace 0

Newcastle 2 Leicester 1

Newcastle 1 Wolves 0

Tottenham 5 Newcastle 1

Everton 1 Newcastle 0

The latest Power Rankings as published by Sky Sports:

Sky Sports Power Rankings 22 April 2022 (1-10)

As you can see, Bruno Guimaraes moving three places up to third top, following that latest man of the match display against Crystal Palace, which included the assist for Almiron’s match winning goal.

You have to then go to number 37 to find the next highest Newcastle player in these Sky Sports form players rankings, with Matt Targett up 37 places. Yet another excellent defensive performance from the left-back, an easy NUFC decision surely this summer for a permanent deal after this loan spell.
