Sky Sports stats claim NUFC star is the 19th most in-form player in the Premier League this season

Newcastle United star Fabian Schar has been named in the top 20 of Sky Sports’ Premier League Power Rankings – one place above Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk.

The rankings focus on the stats in their search for the most in-form players in the top flight, with the Swiss international’s superb display in our 0-1 win at Spurs followed by a well taken goal to give us a point against Watford last weekend seeing him fly up their rankings.

Here’s Sky Sports’ latest list of in-form Premier League players, with their stats claiming he’s currently one of the top performing centre-backs behind Southampton’s Yannik Vestegaard, Liverpool’s Joel Matip and Leicester’s Caglar Soyuncu:

  1. Sergio Aguero
  2. Tammy Abraham
  3. Jamie Vardy
  4. Roberto Firmino
  5. Kevin De Bruyne
  6. Sebastien Haller
  7. Teemu Pukki
  8. Sadio Mane
  9. Richarlison
  10. Raheem Sterling
  11. Mohamed Salah
  12. Arthur Masuaku
  13. Mason Mount
  14. Jannik Vestergaard
  15. Ashley Barnes
  16. Joel Matip
  17. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
  18. Caglar Soyuncu
  19. Fabian Schar
  20. Virgil Van Dijk

Hopefully he can keep up his good form in both boxes, with us needing all the help we can get ahead of next Saturday’s daunting trip to Anfield.

One thing’s for sure – what a signing he’s been for just £3m. As a solid defender and brilliant ball player, he must be worth 10 times that in this day and age.
