10. Marcos Alonso (new entry)

After being frozen out by Frank Lampard earlier in the season, Alonso suddenly finds himself as a key member of the starting XI once again.

The Spaniard has been criticised for his defensive work at times since moving to Stamford Bridge in 2016, but nobody can question his ability going forward.

After scoring a brilliant goal to help seal victory over Tottenham the previous weekend, Alonso was at it again with a double against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

The 29-year-old was in the right place at the right time twice at the Vitality Stadium, popping up at the back post to give the Blues the lead in the first half, before rescuing a point with just five minutes remaining.

With Lampard's forwards struggling for goals, Alonso's attacking efforts have proved crucial in the hunt for a top four spot.

9. Ismaila Sarr (new entry) 

Watford's dip in form between mid-January and late February coincided with Sarr being out injured, leaving fans concerned that they could be cut adrift in the relegation zone with a difficult run of games to come.

The club's record signing returned to action from the bench during a 3-0 defeat at recently, but Nigel Pearson showed no hesitation in throwing him back into his starting XI against runaway leaders Liverpool on Saturday evening.

Sarr repaid his manager's faith in style, scoring a poacher's effort before adding his second with a superb run and cool finish beyond Alisson at Vicarage Road.

He has quickly become Watford's most important player, and keeping him fit and firing will be vital to their hopes of avoiding the drop.

8. Roberto Firmino (down three)

It was a night to forget for Liverpool's front-three against Watford, with Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane all drawing a blank.

Despite often being at his best away from home, the Brazilian struggled to get into the game and was replaced by Takumi Minamino on 79 minutes.

He drops down three places in our rankings and will be hoping to bounce back if picked for Tuesday's fifth round FA Cup tie away at Chelsea.

7. Dominic Calvert-Lewin (new entry) 

If the Premier League dished out an award for the most improved player in the division, Calvert-Lewin would surely be the favourite to win it.

This season the Everton striker has added goals to the effort and energy he has always shown while wearing a blue shirt, having scored his 13th in the Premier League against on Sunday.

The England hopeful enjoyed a touch of luck when David de Gea smashed the ball at him and it rebounded into the back of United's net just a couple of minutes into the 1-1 draw, but his desire to put him under pressure deserves credit.

He has now scored in five of his last six games, and could've had the winner had his deflected late strike not been
