Last Updated: 13/12/17 2:30pm
Alaves winger Ibai Gomez has stormed to the La Liga Power Rankings' summit this week.
The 28-year-old scored during a 2-0 win against Las Palmas and smashed a hat-trick past Girona the previous week - having lost his starting place for a fourth successive fixture only a month ago.
Season chart-topper Lionel Messi (No 2, up five places) and Luis Suarez (No 8, up one place) both scored to secure a 2-0 win at Villarreal and maintain Barcelona's five-point lead atop La Liga.
Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo (No 10, up 45 places) entered the top 10 for the first time this season after doubling his season league tally with two goals during a 5-0 win over Sevilla.
Former Liverpool forward Iago Aspas slipped one place to No 3, despite scoring Celta Vigo's equalising goal at Valencia before Daniel Parajo (No 6, no move) converted a late match-winning penalty.
Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul (No 4, up 12 places) was back among the top performers after scoring the winner at Real Betis, with team-mate Filipe Luis (No 9, up two places) making six tackles to break into the top 10.
Elsewhere, Malaga winger Gonzalo Castro (No 5, up nine places) sealed a 2-0 win at Real Sociedad with his third goal in four games to rise nine places into the No 5 spot.
The Power Rankings methodology reflects a player's performance over the last five matchdays by awarding points to players for 32 different stats.
