Sky Sports name 3 NUFC players in Premier League’s top 50 form table – 18th, 34th & 47th

According to Sky Sports‘ latest ‘Power Rankings’, Newcastle United have THREE players in the Premier League’s top 50 form table following the first five games of the season.

The rankings focus on a range of key stats in Sky’s search for the league’s form men each and every gameweek.

Karl Darlow is our highest ranked player in 18th following his superb form between the sticks and silly number of saves, with Callum Wilson in 34th after four goals and an assist in five Premier League starts so far.

Allan Saint-Maximin is the final Mag in the mix, with him just staying in the top 50 (47th) following his stunning display against Burnley a few weeks ago.

Here’s the top 50 in full, with Aston Villa’s Emi Martinez the only goalkeeper ranked higher than our stand-in stopper:

Considering we haven’t kept a clean sheet since the opening day of the season, it perhaps says a lot that our goalkeeper is our highest ranked player.

Darlow has made 28 saves this season – considerably more than any other Premier League stopper – and also saved Bruno Fernandes’ penalty on Saturday night before the Red Devlips ran riot late on.

As for Wilson and ASM, they have been our two shining lights in attack and always pose a threat, but they can’t do it all on their own!
