Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has topped for a second week running..
Aguero scored his sixth goal of the season and claimed his third assist during a 5-0 goal fest against Crystal Palace – taking City’s goal tally to a remarkable 21 goals from their opening six games.
Team-mate Leroy Sane (No 4, up 17 places) opened the scoring at the Etihad, while Raheem Sterling netted twice (No 8, up 41 places) and David Silva (No 10, up six places) collected two assists – although Fabian Delph’s long-range strike owed little to the pass.
Alvaro Morata soared 22 places into the No 2 spot and almost toppled Aguero atop the chart after hitting a hat-trick during Chelsea’s 4-0 win at Stoke, breaking the deadlock within two minutes – set up by a long pass from Cesar Azpilicueta (No 5, up 13 places).
Tottenham’s Harry Kane (No 3, up 11 places) secured a 3-2 win at West Hamin the early Saturday kick-off, scoring a quick-fire double before half-time.
