How are the Power Rankings calculated?

The Power Rankings are based on points awarded to players for 35 different statistics - from goals and assists, to blocks and tackles. The standings take into account the number of points a player has earned up to the previous five matchdays of a season, with each previous game worth 20 per cent fewer points in incremental deductions.

West Ham midfielder Pablo Fornals (No 4) surged into the top 10 after scoring the Hammers' second goal at the London Stadium, while Crystal Palace loanee Conor Gallagher (No 7) retained his place among the top performers with his fourth goal of the season in a 2-0 win over Wolves.
