Hat-trick hero Perisic tops Power Rankings ahead of Brignoli, De Gea
ESPN FC's global editorial desks nominate their top performers from the weekend's action.
1. Ivan Perisic | Inter
Why he's here: A hat trick vs. Chievo took his season tally to seven and was the star turn in a 5-0 victory that sent Inter to the top of Serie A.
2. Alberto Brignoli | Benevento
Why he's here: The goalkeeper headed a 95th-minute equaliser to give Benevento their first point of the season after 14 straight defeats.
3. David De Gea | Manchester United
Why he's here: Fourteen saves, including several that almost defied belief, saw De Gea provide the backbone for United's win at Arsenal.
4.Eden Hazard | Chelsea
Why he's here: On a day when he took nine shots -- six of which were on target -- the Belgian international scored twice against Newcastle.
5. Gonzalo Higuain | Juventus
Why he's here: Following a week of speculation concerning whether he'd play, Higuain got the winner on his latest return to former club Napoli.
6. Philippe Coutinho | Liverpool
Why he's here: After setting up two goals, Coutinho capped a fine display at Brighton with a clever free kick goal under the defensive wall.
7. Roberto Firmino | Liverpool
Why he's here: Having gone without a Premier League goal since Oct. 28, Firmino scored twice from three shots in Liverpool's 5-1 win.
8. Jesse Lingard | Manchester United
Why he's here: Two goals helped secure victory at the Emirates; Lingard has scored three times in his last two Premier League games.
9. David Silva | Manchester City
Why he's here: The Premier League leaders left it late once again and it was Silva who eventually beat West Ham with an acrobatic volley.
10. Serge Gnabry | Hoffenheim
Why he's here: There's no more reason needed than this! Gnabry scored twice -- his first goals of the season -- in a 4-0 win against RB Leipzig.
