Sky Sports and Budweiser, official partner of the Premier League and King of Beers, have teamed up to bring you the weekly Power Rankings.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane has soared to the form chart summit after scoring twice and notching his seventh assist in the Premier League this season during the 3-3 draw with West Ham.
Heung-Min Son topped the rankings going into the international break but slipped into runner-up spot this week, with Kane assisting him for the sixth time this term for Spurs’ opener.
Aston Villa are the only team with a perfect start following their 1-0 win at Leicester, with Jack Grealish (No 3), Emiliano Martinez (No 7), Ollie Watkins (No 8), John McGinn (No 9) and match-winner Ross Barkley (No 11) in stellar form.
The eventful Merseyside derby ended 2-2, with both team’s key duos maintaining their chart-topping standings: James Rodriguez (No 4), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (No 5), Mohamed Salah (No 6) and Sadio Mane (No 10).
Each club’s top player
In terms of the clubs’ top players, Karl Darlow continues to reign supreme as he covers the injured Martin Dubravka in goal at Newcastle, while Ademola Lookman marked his first start on loan at Fulham with a fine solo goal at Sheffield United.
Several full-backs topped their respective club’s rankings, including new signings Timothy Castagne at Leicester and Ben Chilwell at Chelsea – with Aaron Cresswell, Solly March and Bukayo Saka also leading the charts.
Kings of the Premier League: September XI
Sky Sports and Budweiser, official partner of the Premier League and King of Beers, have joined forces to bring you the Kings of the Premier League show.
On the back of its resounding success last season, the debate will return to your screens at 8pm on the last Friday of every month on Sky Sports Premier League.
Sky Sports presenter Adam Smith and two guests will build an ultimate XI from the top-performing players over the past month, pitting stats against gut as they compare data-driven form charts with Kings of the Match fan votes.
“This show really is the perfect way to pick the team of the month,” according to Smithy. “It’s never easy picking a dream XI, so let the debate commence.”
The show’s best bits will play out across Sky Sports’ YouTube and the partnership will also deliver the weekly Power Ranking articles every Tuesday on the Sky Sports website and apps.
Sky Sports’ very own Jamie Carragher joined presenter, influencer and Arsenal fan Nicole Holliday for the first show as they locked horns, and occasionally agreed, to assemble the ultimate team for September.
The show kicked off on Friday, October 2 and will run throughout the first four months of the Premier League season.
