Chelsea wing-back Marcos Alonso has topped the Sky Sports Power Rankings this week.
Alonso won six tackles and achieved 91 per cent passing accuracy during the Blues' 2-0 win over Everton on Sunday - but was boosted by his match-winning double against Tottenham last week.
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba slipped one place to No 2, despite helping United record a third successive win during their 2-0 win over Leicester.
Team-mates Romelu Lukaku (No 5, down one place), Henrikh Mkhitaryan (No 6, up three places) and David de Gea (No 7, up 22 places) are also among the top performers.
Liverpool thrashed Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield on Super Sunday, with goal-scorers Sadio Mane (No 4, up six places), Roberto Firmino (No 8, up 34 places) and Mo Salah (No 9, up 42 places) soaring into the top 10. Meanwhile, not one Arsenal player made the top 50.
Huddersfield stopper Jonas Lossl has been among the top three performers since the start of the season and retained his place at No 3 after keeping a third successive clean sheet during a 0-0 draw against Southampton.
Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli climbed 28 places to No 10 after putting Spurs ahead against Burnley at Wembley before a last-minute equaliser from Claret's new signing Chris Wood.
