Premier League Power Rankings: Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang top

Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang top ahead of Everton's Gylfi Sigurdsson and Chelsea's Eden Hazard


Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has topped the Power Rankings chart this week.

The Gabon international scored a double for the second game running during a 3-1 win at Leicester, after being called from the bench with just 30 minutes remaining.

Team-mate Mesut Ozil (No 9) soared into the top 10 after slotting home the equaliser and contributing to both of Aubameyang's goals, while Alexandre Lacazette (No 5) also played a part in the Gunners' third.

Gylfi Sigurdsson's (No 2) scoring run ended during Everton's 2-0 win against Crystal Palace, as it did for Eden Hazard (No 3) during Chelsea's last-gasp 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

Manchester City thrashed Burnley 5-0 at the Etihad, with Fernandinho (No 4) and Riyad Mahrez (No 6) netting stunners and 'keeper Ederson (No 8) also keeping his sixth clean sheet this term.

Brighton stopper Mat Ryan (No 7) achieved the top 10 with six saves during a 1-0 win at Newcastle, while Jonjo Shelvey (No 33) continued to buck the Magpies' poor form with match-topping stats for shots, passes, touches and tackles.
