Their ‘power rankings’ focus on a range of key stats in Sky’s search for the league’s form players, and, according to their numbers, we have three in top 50.
Here’s their latest top 50, with Kevin De Bruyne now topping the charts after his 2 goals and assist in Man City’s 3-0 demolition at Arsenal on Sunday:
Shelvey has dropped from 2nd to 16th after missing our 1-0 defeat to Burnley over the weekend, while Fernandez and Dubravka were 14th and 22nd respectively prior to our disappointing display at Turf Moor.
The stats mean Shelvey is deemed the 4th most in-form central midfielder in the league, while only five other centre-backs (Vertonghen, Van Dijk, Tomkins, Evans, Tarkowski) are ranked higher than Argentine defender Federico Fernandez.
As for Dubravka, Sky Sports’ stats have him down as the second top performing goalkeeper of late, with Palace’s Vicenta Guaita ranked 2nd overall after 3 clean sheets in his last 4 and several key saves in their 1-1 draw with Brighton on Monday night.
