Each week throughout the 2019-20 season, Sportsmail will bring you a Power Rankings table, listing the top 10 hottest players in the Premier League.

As the stories of the season unravel, the rankings will provide a form guide with players moving in and out of the top 10 depending on both their performances in the previous fixtures and also in recent weeks.

So, who wins a place in the 14th edition of our Power Rankings?

10: James Maddison (down two) 

The Leicester playmaker had a tough afternoon against an Everton side who came out fighting for under-fire manager Marco Silva.

But it was exactly that which meant we saw a different side to Maddison. We are used to the deft flicks, the pinpoint deliveries and tenacious shots from range but on Sunday, it was a performance of graft and hard yards.

He, and Leicester, got their reward with a 90th minute winner.

9: Son Heung-min (down one)

The South Korea star scored the first goal of Jose Mourinho's reign last weekend and he turned creator this time around, setting up two goals as Tottenham defeated Bournemouth 3-2.

He assisted Dele Alli's opener after a magnificent pass from defender Toby Alderweireld and unlocked the Bournemouth defence again for his team's third, whipping a devilish delivery into the penalty area for midfielder Moussa Sissoko to convert.

It takes his assist tally to seven for the season. 

LAST WEEK'S TOP 10

10: Tammy Abraham

9: John Fleck

8: Son Heung-min

7: James Maddison

6: Raheem Sterling

5: Riyad Mahrez

4: Andy Robertson 

3: Kevin De Bruyne

2: Sadio Mane

1: Jamie Vardy 

8: Bernd Leno (new entry)

The goalkeeper was man of the match in Arsenal's first game under Freddie Ljungberg and it is an accurate signifier of how things went against Norwich on Sunday.

But while Arsenal were disjointed and lacking in cohesion, their goalkeeper was on top form. 

He made three outstanding saves in the second half to keep Norwich at bay; the pick being the left-handed touch that turned a venomous low strike from Kenny McLean around the post.

Playing behind that Arsenal defence is no mean feat and Leno repeatedly came to their rescue at Carrow Road.

7: Sadio Mane (down five)

It is a rare weekend now where Sadio Mane is not among the Liverpool scorers but Brighton were successful in restricting Mane's openings in front of goal.

But, much like Maddison, it was an afternoon of hard work for the Senegal star and he did not shirk his responsibilities. He created an opening for Roberto Firmino and was always a threat on the left side of Liverpool's attack.

It was a crucial three points for Liverpool, who have a Merseyside derby next.

6: James Ward-Prowse (new entry)

When you are in the bottom three and without a win in your last eight Premier League matches - one of which being a 9-0 defeat - you need something to encourage a turnaround.

For Southampton, that came from James Ward-Prowse in the 83rd minute of their 2-1 win over Watford on Saturday night. The midfielder stepped up
