Two-goal Higuain tops Player Power Rankings; Immobile, Cavani rank high
ESPN FC's worldwide editorial desks nominate their top performers from the weekend's action. Gonzalo Higuain is this week's No. 1.
1. Gonzalo Higuain | Juventus
Why he's here: After scoring just three times in his first nine league games of the season, Higuain has three in his last two; his double strike saw off Milan on Saturday.
2. Ciro Immobile | Lazio
Why he's here: A goal against Benevento took his season tally to 14 in 11 Serie A games. Immobile also doubled his assist total on Sunday by setting up three goals.
3. Edinson Cavani | Paris Saint-Germain
Why he's here: With Neymar suspended and Kylian Mbappe struggling, Cavani carried PSG against Nice with two goals; he has scored in five straight games in all competitions.
4. Hirving Lozano | PSV Eindhoven
Why he's here: The Mexican international appears to be enjoying life in Holland; he has 10 goals in all competitions after netting twice in a win at Vitesse.
5. Fernandinho | Manchester City
Why he's here: Anchoring midfield behind potent forwards is his main role but Fernandinho is more than a destroyer, as he showed with a goal and an assist at West Brom.
6. Nabil Fekir | Valencia
Why he's here: Fekir is a fundamental reason why Lyon are third in France; his two goals beat Metz and mean he has nine goals in 10 Ligue 1 games this season.
7. Sead Kolasinac | Arsenal
Why he's here: Down 1-0 at home to Swansea and with crowd frustration growing, Arsenal needed inspiration. Up stepped Kolasinac with a goal and an assist to set up victory.
8. Portu | Girona
Why he's here: Arguably the result of the weekend -- Girona's comeback win against Spanish and European champions Real Madrid -- was sealed by Portu's winning goal.
9. Marc-Andre ter Stegen | Barcelona
Why he's here: Barca's 2-0 win at Athletic Bilbao was made possible by several fine Ter Stegen saves; the German international has conceded just three times in 10 Liga games.
10. Robert Lewandowski | Bayern Munich
Why he's here: Lewandowski's goal against RB Leipzig took him into double figures in the Bundesliga this season; Bayern will hope the injury that forced him off is not serious.
Also receiving votes: Lucas Torreira, Cristhian Stuani, Leroy Sane, Anthony Martial.
