Sky Sports Power Rankings: Watford's Jose Holebas top

Liverpool's Sadio Mane climbs into runner-up spot ahead of Manchester City's Sergio Aguero and Tottenham's Lucas Moura


Watford's Jose Holebas has topped the Sky Sports Power Rankings this week.

The Greece international assisted both goals during a 2-1 win over Tottenham, with team-mate Troy Deeney (No 7, up 18 places) heading the equaliser before Craig Cathcart (No 16, up 62 places) nodded the winner.

Last week's table-topper Lucas Moura (No 4, down three places) took a tumble after the defeat at Vicarage Road, while Kieran Trippier (No 29, down 18 places) is Spurs' next top performer at No 29.

Sadio Mane maintained his top-five presence in the rankings this season, securing runner-up spot this week after poking Liverpool into an early lead during a narrow 2-1 win at Leicester.

Sergio Aguero retained his No 3 position somewhat fortuitously, claiming an assist for a back-pass to Kyle Walker - who hit a 36-yard rocket to secure a 2-1 win over Newcastle.

Pedro (No 9, up eight places) came off the bench to break the deadlock for Chelsea against Bournemouth, before Marcos Alonso (No 6, up 14 places) coolly assisted Eden Hazard (No 5, up 14 places) to guarantee three points.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (No 8, no move) had doubled Fulham's lead against Brighton but took a hit after conceding a penalty as the Cottagers spurned their two-goal advantage and settled for a point.
