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.

Analysis of all Premier League games is taking place throughout the season and the players in the Actim Index Team of the Week are:

David James – Portsmouth – 23rd, 166pts
Martin Laursen – Aston Villa – 9th, 186pts
Noe Pamarot – Portsmouth – 258th, 45pts
Luke Young – Middlesborough – 117th, 98pts
Juliano Belletti – Chelsea – 81st, 112pts
Frank Lampard – Chelsea – 3rd, 228pts
Lee Carsley – Everton – 102nd, 101pts
Simon Davies – Fulham – 26th, 160
Niko Kranjcar – Portsmouth – 115th, 98pts
David Healy – Fulham – 52nd, 137pts
Yakubu – Everton – 89th, 108pts

The Actim Index is calculated using a unique mathematical formula that rates each player’s contribution be it goals, shots, passes, dribbles, tackles, crosses, saves, clearances, blocks, interceptions, assists, clean sheets, time on the pitch or number of points gained by the team with marks deducted for red and yellow cards.

  • Well done fellas, Pompey the most represented team is a sight to behold and although Merlin is dissapointed that there are only two Chelsea players in the team, what please me more is the absence of ManU, Arsenal & Liverpool players

  • yep, everyone was raving on about the game United and arsenal, but it seemed that pompey caught the headlines, although MOTD showed 30 minutes of the arsenal game

  • Such is life Gleamer … Haven’t you realised we only exist in the Premiership so the op four have different teams to play week in week out… We are fodder along with the likes of Newcastle,Bolton, Boro, and Wigan….. we are not even as interesting as the new boys (Sunderland, Birmingham & .. erm who else cam up … oh yeah Derby !
