Two-goal Higuain tops Player Power Rankings; Immobile, Cavani rank high

Gonzalo Higuain's brace against AC Milan was enough to earn him the top spot on this week's player power rankings.
After Gonzalo Higuain's brace against Milan, the FC crew assess his form with Juventus and his future with Argentina.

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.

Gonzalo Higuain was the difference as Italian champions Juventus won at Milan.

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.
