A look back at all the action from Matchweek 35 in the Premier League.

Manchester City midfielder Rodri (No 4) scored for the second league game in a row in a 4-0 win at Leeds, while Wilfried Zaha (No 5) is back in goal with a stoppage-time winner at Southampton.

Martin Dubravka (No 6) climbed 20 places in the table after making nine saves against Jurgen Klopp’s side, while the Southampton maestro James Ward-Prowse (No 5) fell three places after the defeat at St Mary’s Stadium.

How are Power Rankings calculated?

Power rankings are based on points awarded to players for 35 different stats – from goals and assists to blocks and tackles. The ranking takes into account the number of points a player has earned in the previous five matchdays of a season, with each previous match worth 20% less points in additional deductions.

Cristiano Ronaldo (No 8) maintained his long run in the top 10 after converting a penalty as Manchester United cruised to a 3-0 victory over Brentford, after scoring his 100th career Premier League goal in the 3-1 defeat at Arsenal.

Our pick of the Premier League Matchweek 35’s best saves, including Jordan Pickford, Tim Krul and Ben Foster.

Liverpool cap Alisson (No 9) was back among the elite performers after his clean sheet at St James Park, while the Burnley keeper Nick Pope (No 10) retained his top-10 finish after the Clarets’ dramatic 2-1 victory at Watford.

Power Rankings winner goes to the 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 Riyadh Mahrez (2015/16)?

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 Alexandre-Arnold also has the price in mind.

The race for the Golden Boot heats up

salah beat 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 extended his run to 19 this season, just three goals clear of Salah – while Ronaldo is just four behind the Liverpool winger, but United have just two more games to play.
