Neymar continues influential run at PSG to top Player Power Rankings

ESPN FC's worldwide editorial desks nominate their top performers from the weekend's action. Paris Saint-Germain talisman Neymar is this week's No. 1.

1. Neymar | Paris Saint-Germain

Why he's here: PSG's talisman scored twice and assisted on another as Les Parisiens beat Bordeaux 6-2 on Saturday.

2. Lionel Messi | Barcelona

Why he's here: As Barcelona took on Las Palmas behind closed doors amid the political turmoil in Catalonia, Messi proved to be the club's lifeblood, netting twice and adding an assist in Sunday's 3-0 win.

3. Harry Kane | Tottenham Hotspur

Why he's here: Kane capped off his sterling September with a brace in Spurs' 4-0 win at Huddersfield, giving the 24-year-old 11 goals last month.

4. Isco | Real Madrid

Why he's here: Isco scored both of Real Madrid's goals in Sunday's 2-0 win over Espanyol, Los Blancos' first victory at home in the league this season.

5. Cedric Bakambu | Villarreal

Why he's here: Bakambu is the only hat trick hero on this week's list, responsible for all of Villarreal's goals in the 3-0 win over Eibar on Sunday.

Neymar continued his influential run of form at PSG, scoring twice and adding an assist in Saturday's 6-2 win vs. Bordeaux.

6. Marouane Fellaini | Manchester United

Why he's here: Fellaini registered a pair of goals from midfield as Man United dismantled Crystal Palace 4-0 on Saturday.

7. Lucas Ocampos | Marseille

Why he's here: Ocampos scored twice, his second being the go-ahead goal, as Marseille fought back from two goals down to beat Nice 4-2 on Sunday.

8. Kevin De Bruyne | Manchester City

Why he's here: De Bruyne scored his first Premier League goal of the season on Saturday, and it came at the most opportune time, securing Man City a 1-0 win at former club Chelsea.

9. Andres Guardado | Real Betis

Why he's here: Guardado supplied a pair of assists in Real Betis' entertaining 4-4 draw at Real Sociedad on Sunday. With six, no one has more assists in La Liga this season than the 31-year-old Mexico international.

10. Maxi Lopez | Udinese

Why he's here: Lopez scored twice as Udinese climbed into midtable in Serie A following a 4-0 drubbing of Sampdoria.

Also receiving votes: Dries Mertens (Napoli), Hirving "Chucky" Lozano (PSV), Luis Alberto (Lazio), Marcelo Brozovic (Internazionale), Richarlison (Watford), Lucas Castro (Chievo), Etrit Berisha (Atalanta).
