Portsmouth’s stunning 4-1 win at Newcastle saw three players named in the Team of the Week in the Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League.
Goalkeeper David James, defender Noe Pamarot and Niko Kranjcar played their part in a performance which saw Pompey win at St James’ Park for the first time in 58 years and ended Newcastle’s unbeaten home record.
James moved up five places to 23rd in the Index with 166 points with one of his best away scores of the season while Pamarot netted a sensational early opener to put Pompey on their way to victory.
His season’s-best score of 33 lifted the Frenchman up 85 places to 258th in the Index with 45 points and Kranjcar posted 36 points – also his highest this term – which saw him rise 74 places to 115th with 98 points.
