Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has topped this week's Sky Sports Power Rankings.
The 27-year-old scored twice in the Gunners' 3-2 win over Swansea to equal his goal tally of five goals from last season.
Team-mates Alexis Sanchez (No 3, down one place), Mesut Ozil (No 5, up 34 places) and Laurent Koscielny (No 7, down four places) also occupy the top 10.
Stoke midfielder Joe Allen soared 34 places up the chart to No 2 after kick-starting the Potters' campaign with two goals against fellow Premier League strugglers Sunderland.
A match-winning strike from Watford defender Jose Holebas against Middlesbrough fired the Greece defender to No 4 this week, while Bournemouth's Junior Stanislas rose 50 places to No 6 after scoring his third goal this season during the Cherries' 6-1 demolition of Hull.
Tottenham's Heung-Min Son topped the Power Rankings before the international break, but the South Korea attacker dropped to No 9 this week following a brief appearance during Spurs' 1-1 draw with West Brom.
Chelsea's Diego Costa (No 8, up nine places) scored his seventh goal this season during the Blues' 3-0 win over champions Leicester, while Southampton's Charlie Austin (No 10, up 32 places) opened the scoring goal and converted a penalty to secure a 3-1 win over Burnley.
The Power Rankings methodology reflects a player's performance by awarding points to players for 32 different matchday stats.
