Sky Sports uses statistics from games to judge who are the best players in the Premier League this season.
And we have to believe the stats they use are the right ones that make up what they call their power rankings as the rate each player in each match.
And after five games, four Newcastle United players are in the top 40 of the form table.
Jamaal Lascelles is the seventh best player in the league according to his stats, Rob Elliot is 19th, Matt Ritchie is 25th, and Christian Atsu is in 38th place.
Not too bad for a team full of Championship-class players -= well at least according to most of the pundits.
Jamaal Lascelles – 7th best player in the Premier League
Here is the list of the top 50 best players in the Premier League according to Sky Sports power rankings with Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus – two strikers from Manchester City – ranked first and second.
