Tricky Nicky Makes Team Of Week

Tricky Nicky Makes Team Of Week

Newcastle United midfielder Nicky Butt posted his top score of the season to earn a place in the Team of the Week in The Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League.

Butt cancelled out Darren Bent`s opener for Spurs as Newcastle won 4-1 at White Hart Lane to register a second successive victory and move the Magpies up towards the top half of the table.

The 33-year-old also contributed two clearances, one interception, one block, 23 passes and two crosses to claim 37 points, moving him up 30 places to 101st in the Index with 258 points.

Newcastle have two players in the top 100 with Steven Taylor the highest in 81st position with 283 points and the in-form Michael Owen sitting 93rd with 266 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:

Name, Team, Position, Weekly Score

David James, Portsmouth, Goalkeeper, 23

William Gallas, Arsenal, Defender, 35

Ricardo Carvalho, Chelsea, Defender, 32

Glen Johnson, Portsmouth, Defender, 30

John Terry, Chelsea, Defender, 28

Cristiano Ronaldo, Man Utd, Midfielder, 55

Nicky Butt, Newcastle, Midfielder, 37

Matthew Taylor, Bolton, Midfielder, 33

Geremi, Newcastle, Midfielder, 32

Mauro Zarate, Birmingham, Striker, 46

Fernando Torres, Liverpool, Striker, 42

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.
