How are the Sky Sports Power Rankings calculated?

Each week we list the top-performing players in the Premier League. These Power Rankings are based on points awarded to players for 35 different statistics - from goals and assists, to blocks and tackles.

Goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards receive a different number of points for certain achievements - for instance, a defender is awarded more points than a forward for scoring a goal.

Online, the standings will take into account the number of Power Ranking points a player has earned over the past five matchdays, with each previous game worth 20 per cent fewer points in incremental deductions.
