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.
Teammates Sadio Mane (#3), Joel Matip (Number 4), Virgil van Dijk (#5) and Mohammad Salah (No 7) all rose through the ranks to claim the top 10 after being put on the scoresheet in the tremendous midweek victory at Anfield.
Harry Kane (No 6) rose slightly in the standings with another man of the match performance in a 4-0 win over Leeds on Saturday, scoring a side-footed strike from a sharp angle and spraying a defensive pass to attack Heung. -Min Son and set a new Premier League record of 37 goal combinations between the two.
Aston Villa full-back Matty Cash (No 8) scored his second goal of the season with precise drive from distance to break the deadlock in a 2-0 win over Brighton – securing his best position in the form table so far this season .
Newcastle Midfielder Joe Willock (#9) and Southampton kingpin Oriol-Romeu (No 10) were also in the top flight, with Willock scoring his second goal in as many games in a 2-0 win at Brentford and Romeu smashing home a stunner in a 2-0 win over Norwich.
