Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne tops Sky Sports Power Rankings

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has topped the Sky Sports Power Rankings this week.

De Bruyne overtook Liverpool’s Mo Salah (No 2, down one place) atop the chart after assisting David Silva’s late, match-winning goal during a 2-1 win over West Ham, with team-mate Raheem Sterling slipping three places to No 9.

Liverpool thrashed Brighton at the Amex, with Emre Can (No 28, up 119 places) breaking the deadlock before Roberto Firmino (No 10, up 78 places) scored either side of the break and Philippe Coutinho (No 5, up 95 places) sealed an emphatic 5-1 victory.

Eden Hazard (No 3, up six places) scored twice during Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Newcastle, converting his second from the penalty spot – having been rested during the midweek victory against Swansea.

Ashley Young (No 4, down one place) retained his status as Manchester United’s most in-form player after a 3-1 win at Arsenal, with Jesse Lingard (No 6, up 58 places) breaking into the top 10 with two goals at the Emirates.

Everton recorded a second successive victory with a 2-0 win against Huddersfield, with goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson (No 8, up seven places) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (No 14, up 59 places), while Wayne Rooney slipped three places to No 7 – having smashed a hat-trick past West Ham on Wednesday.

The Power Rankings methodology reflects a player’s performance over the last five matchdays by awarding points to players for 32 different stats.
