Who is red-hot in the Premier League right now? Sky Sports ranks every player over the last five matchdays…
Manchester CIty forward Gabriel Jesus secured top spot in the form chart for a second week running after scoring in the 4-0 win at Leeds, having smashed four goals past Watford last week.
Tottenham forward Heung-Min Son soared back into runner-up spot after netting a double in the 3-1 win over Leicester, while Bruno Guimaraes (No 3) slipped one place following the 1-0 defeat to Liverpool.
Manchester City midfielder Rodri (No 4) scored for the second successive league game in a 4-0 victory at Leeds, while Wilfried Zaha (No 5) is back among the goals with a stoppage-time winner at Southampton.
Martin Dubravka (No 6) surged 20 places up the rankings after making nine saves against Jurgen Klopp’s side, while Southampton maestro James Ward-Prowse (No 5) tumbled three places after the defeat at St Mary’s Stadium.
How are the Power Rankings calculated?
The Power Rankings are based on points awarded to players for 35 different statistics – from goals and assists, to blocks and tackles. The standings take into account the number of points a player has earned up to the previous five matchdays of a season, with each previous game worth 20 per cent fewer points in incremental deductions.
Cristiano Ronaldo (No 8) maintained his extensive run in the top 10 after converting a penalty as Manchester United cruised to a 3-0 win over Brentford, having scored his 100th career Premier League goal in the 3-1 defeat at Arsenal.
Liverpool stopper Alisson (No 9) was back among the elite performers following his clean sheet at St James Park, while Burnley ‘keeper Nick Pope (No 10) retained his top-10 standing following the Clarets’ dramatic 2-1 win at Watford.

Power Rankings winner goes to wire
Who will join the Power Rankings’ hall of fame, alongside Harry Kane (2020/21), Kevin De Bruyne (2019/20), Eden Hazard (2018/19), Salah (2017/18), Alexis Sanchez (2016/17) and Riyad Mahrez (2015/16)?
The current season totals reveal Salah is set to become the first player to win the Power Rankings twice – but Son is closing the gap at breakneck speed, while Trent Alexander-Arnold also has the award in his sights.
Salah broke his six-game duck for goals from open play in the 4-0 win over Manchester United and now has 22 Premier League goals to his name this season.
But Son has extended his haul to 19 this term, just three goals behind Salah – while Ronaldo is only four shy of the Liverpool winger, but United have only two games left to play.
