What Is The Squawka Player Performance Score?
The Squawka Player Performance Score is a comprehensive algorithm built on the back of extensive analysis of over 400 Premier League matches. It awards points for every player for their every touch of the ball. It analyses whether the action was defensive, attacking or possessional and then applies further adjustments based on the player’s squad position and the area of the pitch in which the action happened.
The Squawka Player Performance algorithm also gives bonuses for skillful and influential play. However, it deducts points for actions that negatively impact the team. We believe this gives the most accurate indication of a player’s performance, all of this condensed into one simple bubble.
The Squawka Player Performance Score is calculated From:
Action: 28 types Including passes, shots, saves, take-ons, clearances, fouls, tackles, cards, interceptions, blocks, key passes etc.

Players who have had an average game over 90 minutes can expect a score of between 10 and 20 points. A minus score indicates a poor game and a score over 50 shows the player is performing well.
Unlike most rating systems, which give scores out of 10, there is no limit to how many points a player can score (positively or negatively) on the Squawka Player Performance ratings system. They are as good, or as bad as their involvement, influence and skill allows.
