With some new entrants into the list, let us first take a look at the waitlist for this Gameweek.


Watch-list

Christian Benteke

Gameweek 15 ranking – 5th

The Palace striker’s goalscoring run ended in a loss to Manchester United and he finds himself out of the top 10.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Gameweek 15 ranking – 6th

It was a night to forget for the Englishman as Arsenal lost to Everton and Chamberlain failed to make any meaningful impact on the game.

Salomon Rondon

Gameweek 15 ranking – N/A

The West Brom striker scored a 13-minute hat-trick against Swansea, thereby becoming the 2nd player since Everton’s Duncan Ferguson in 1997 to score all three goals with the head. The performance earns Rondon a spot on the watch-list.

Jamie Vardy

Gameweek 15 ranking – 8th

The Leicester striker could not add to his stunning hat-trick against Manchester City as Leicester slumped to a loss against Bournemouth.

Now, without further ado, let’s delve into the top 10 attackers in the league after Gameweek 16.


#10 Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Gameweek 15 ranking – N/A

Match performance – one assisted assist and the match winner

The self-proclaimed “God of Manchester” makes his entry into the power rankings for the first time. Zlatan was involved in both the goals for Manchester United against Crystal Palace underlying his impact to the side. His chested ball from Juan Mata’s set-piece delivery was deflected into Paul Pogba’s path for United’s opener.

After Palace equalised, United found the match-winning goal from a Pogba pass that Zlatan picked up with a well-timed run and a superb finish to hand Jose Mourinho the victory and in the process, start his climb up the power rankings.
