The Sky Sports power rankings calculate the form of every single player in the Premier League .

Each player’s performance is assessed by a complex system which awards points for 33 different matchday stats.

These stats include goals, passes, tackles, blocks, big chances missed and touches.

Each action is worth more or less depending on whether the player is a goalkeeper, defender, midfielder or forward.

The rankings only take into account the last five matches, with the most recent games weighted more heavily.

And prior to last night’s fixtures, Raheem Sterling was the top dog in the league after another goalscoring performance in the win over Bournemouth.

His fellow Manchester City winger Leroy Sane is in second, ahead of Aubameyang who brilliantly provided two goals and an assist in Arsenal’s 4-2 victory over rivals Tottenham.

Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold is in fourth, making him the most in-form defender in the league – and his team-mates Alisson, Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk also feature in the top 20.

Some surprise names have also made the cut, including Huddersfield’s Aaron Mooy, Southampton’s Stuart Armstrong and Leicester’s Wilfred Ndidi.
