Player Power Rankings: Love for the goalkeepers (2:44)

Craig Burley and Alexis Nunes react to this week's Player Power Rankings, which feature two goalkeepers in the top three. (2:44)

ESPN FC's global editorial desks nominate their top performers from the weekend's action.

1. Ivan Perisic | Inter

Why he's here: A hat trick vs. Chievo took his season tally to seven and was the star turn in a 5-0 victory that sent Inter to the top of Serie A.

2. Alberto Brignoli | Benevento

Why he's here: The goalkeeper headed a 95th-minute equaliser to give Benevento their first point of the season after 14 straight defeats.

3. David De Gea | Manchester United

Why he's here: Fourteen saves, including several that almost defied belief, saw De Gea provide the backbone for United's win at Arsenal.

4.Eden Hazard | Chelsea

Why he's here: On a day when he took nine shots -- six of which were on target -- the Belgian international scored twice against Newcastle.

5. Gonzalo Higuain | Juventus

Why he's here: Following a week of speculation concerning whether he'd play, Higuain got the winner on his latest return to former club Napoli.

6. Philippe Coutinho | Liverpool

Why he's here: After setting up two goals, Coutinho capped a fine display at Brighton with a clever free kick goal under the defensive wall.

7. Roberto Firmino | Liverpool

Why he's here: Having gone without a Premier League goal since Oct. 28, Firmino scored twice from three shots in Liverpool's 5-1 win.

8. Jesse Lingard | Manchester United

Why he's here: Two goals helped secure victory at the Emirates; Lingard has scored three times in his last two Premier League games.

9. David Silva | Manchester City

Why he's here: The Premier League leaders left it late once again and it was Silva who eventually beat West Ham with an acrobatic volley.

10. Serge Gnabry | Hoffenheim

Why he's here: There's no more reason needed than this! Gnabry scored twice -- his first goals of the season -- in a 4-0 win against RB Leipzig.

Also receiving votes: Yunus Malli (Wolfsburg), Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton), Nolito (Sevilla), Stephane Bahoken (Strasbourg).
