Newcastle star Gini Wijnaldum has soared 157 places in the power rankings form table, easily United’s top player in that time period.

Two Newcastle players have made the official Premier League team of the week, with Gini Wijnaldum also easily the top player overall.
Moussa Sissoko. The only player I have ever seen to be the best player on the pitch, and then arguably the worst, all in the same game.

Gini Wijnaldum: “When my family ask me how it is in Newcastle and I say it’s OK and I feel at home, that is why I can give the performances like I do now.”
Rob Elliot: “Gini, Ayoze and Mitro got the goals but you could have picked a number of the lads for man of the match, it was just top class.”
