Leicester City defender Robert Huth has topped the Sky Sports Power Rankings after scoring two goals during the Foxes' 3-1 win against Manchester City on Saturday.
The 31-year-old scored his third goal in five league games at the Etihad, while team-mate Christian Fuchs shot nine places up the charts to No 2 after creating two goals in as many games to help Leicester gain a five-point lead as Premier League leaders.
Jamie Vardy climbed 29 places to No 12 after scoring twice in the Foxes' 2-0 win against Liverpool, including a goal-of-the-season contender, closing the gap on forward partner Riyad Mahrez at the Sky Sports Season Rankings summit to just 3,655 points.
Matchdays 24 and 25 were combined for the latest Power Rankings, which saw two 'keepers enter the top 10 for the first time.
Southampton's Fraser Forster rose 16 places to No 3 after producing a string of saves during the Saints' midweek 0-0 draw at Arsenal and keeping his fifth successive clean sheet since returning from injury in their 1-0 win against West Ham on Saturday - while Saints defender Virgil van Djik dropped one place to No 8.
Leicester 'keeper Kasper Schmeichel has only conceded two goals in seven league games to maintain his position at No 9 for the second week running.
Tottenham trio Harry Kane (No 4, down one place), Christian Eriksen (No 5, down three places) and Dele Alli (No 6, down one place) all kept their places in the top 10 after helping to guide Spurs to second in the Premier League table with victories over Norwich and Watford last week.
Sergio Aguero dropped three places to No 7 after scoring Manchester City's winner against Sunderland on Tuesday and a consolation goal during his team's 3-1 defeat to Leicester at the weekend.
Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson bucked his team's current poor form, storming 10 places up the charts to No 10 after scoring in both of the Swans' 1-1 draws against West Brom and Crystal Palace last week.
The Power Rankings methodology reflects a player's performance over the previous five weeks, with each preceding week worth fewer points. This means the Power Rankings reflect the in-form players of the moment.
