Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling secured top spot in the form chart after scoring a hat-trick in a 5-0 goal-fest at West Ham , with ‘keeper Ederson (No 13) narrowly missing out on the top 10.
Harry Kane (No 2) brushed his customary August goal drought aside with a late, match-winning double against newly-promoted Aston Villa, after new signing Tanguay Ndombele (No 7) scored a stunning equaliser from range.
Burnley remained frugal in the transfer window but new signing Erik Pieters (No 5) notched two assists – both scored by Ashley Barnes (No 3) – before Johann Gudmundsson (No 10) sealed a 3-0 win over Southampton.
Marcus Rashford (No 4) stepped up to the plate during Manchester United’s sensational 4-0 win over Chelsea, converting from 12 yards before latching onto a sublime Paul Pogba (No 25) pass for United’s third.
It only took Mohamed Salah (No 9) 19 minutes to get off the mark against Norwich before firing a pin-point corner for Virgil van Dijk (No 6) to head home 10 minutes later during Liverpool’s 4-1 victory over Norwich.
Below we present each club’s form player in the rankings, with familiar names leading the way for all three promoted clubs.
