@DaveTindallgolf‘s Race to the Premier League Player of the Year after Matchday 13.

1/ Raheem Sterling

(Last week: 3)

We have a new No.1! A goal and two more assists for Sterling in the 4-0 win at West Ham take him to the top of the charts for the first time this season. And deservedly so. That’s seven goals and six assists in the Premier League so far (count those Fantasy points!) and he’s continuing to cause havoc on a weekly basis.

2/ David Silva

(Last week: 2)

Silva makes Man City beautiful to watch but there’s a huge dose of end-product in there too. The opener against West Ham meant he’d scored in four straight City games for the first time in his illustrious career at the Etihad and he has five in total in the Premier League. What a player.

3/ Eden Hazard

(Last week: 1)

Sorry Eden, your eight-week reign at the top is over! Raheem Sterling now has the same number of Premier League goals (seven) but two more assists (six) than the Belgian, whose levels have dropped. Hazard was wonderful up to early October but he’s now gone nine games without a goal for club and country since.

4/ Virgil Van Dijk

(Last week: 5)

Another rock-solid display and clean sheet for Van Dijk at Vicarage Road, a venue where Liverpool had shipped six goals in their last two visits. The Dutchman’s towering presence has helped the Reds concede just five goals in their opening 13 Premier League games, an astonishing improvement on previous campaigns.

5/ Sergio Aguero

(Last week: 4)

Despite the blank at West Ham, he’s still the Premier League’s joint-top scorer with eight goals and don’t overlook the Argentine’s four assists – the same number as Eden Hazard. The latter shows he’s become more of a team player this season.

6/ Mohamed Salah

(Last week: 7)

It’s taken a while for him to get the engine purring but Salah now has six in seven after his strike against Watford. What’s more, four of those recent half-dozen have been the opening goal of often tight matches. His strikes are game changers rather than icing on the cake.

7/ Harry Kane

(Last week: 8)

Not a bad seven days for Mr. World Cup Golden Boot. A crucial winner for England against Croatia and the second in the 3-1 victory over previously unbeaten Chelsea. Kane has five in five in the month of November and is just one behind in the Premier League Golden Boot race with seven.

8/ Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

(Last week: N/A)

He dropped out of the top 10 briefly but the winner for Arsenal at Bournemouth on Sunday makes him the Premier League’s joint-top scorer with eight goals. And, if you’re counting, he has a better minutes-per-goal ratio than Aguero, Sterling, Kane, Salah and Hazard.

9/ Glenn Murray

(Last week: N/A)

Murray has some exotic and big-money names around him in the goal charts but let’s hear it for the striker from the sleepy coastal Cumbrian town of Maryport. A header against Leicester made it seven for the season for the Brighton centre-forward. That’s 50% of his team’s Premier League goals.

10/ Sadio Mane

(Last week: N/A)

Liverpool have just signed Mane up for another five years and put him on big money. It’s easy to see why. A star in the early games of the season and continues to provide crucial sparks. Set up Salah’s opener against Watford and has six Premier League goals to his name this term.
