Giuliano, Nikola Kalinić, Edin Džeko, Leon Bailey and Aritz Aduriz remain the top five in the FedEx Performance Zone rankings, but Antonio Candreva has broken into the top ten in recent days.
6: Antonio Candreva (Inter)
The Italian international winger moved up six places to sixth due to his performance in the 2-2 Milan derby draw on Sunday. Along with his goal, he had five attempts at goal, produced nine crosses and connected with 34 of his 36 passes to team-mates.
11: Łukasz Teodorczyk (Anderlecht)
His side lost 3-2 to leaders Zulte-Waregem, but Teodorczyk did everything he could, scoring twice. Alexandru Chipciu laid on both goals for the striker who now has 11 goals in 14 league matches in addition to six in six UEFA Europa League matches (including qualifying) this season.
17: Ivan Perišić (Inter)
Another Inter winger joins the list of fast risers thanks to his last gasp equaliser in the Milan derby. He also set up Candreva's goal, created another two chances for team-mates, had five efforts at goal, and produced nine crosses.
23: Bruno Soriano (Villarreal)
Villarreal's inspirational midfielder put in a typically solid display in the 1-0 weekend defeat at Athletic to move up five places. He made four clearances and another four interceptions to contribute defensively and his 92% pass-completion rate gave his side momentum.
26: Raúl García (Athletic)
The midfielder popped up with the winning goal in the second half against Villarreal to cap an excellent performance; 12 of his 23 passes came in the final third as he was constantly trying to unlock the Yellow Submarine's defence, but his finishing rather than his creativity made the difference.
