In the list, Ndidi is placed at number 38 after garnering 4,607 points. While Iheanacho is at number 48 with 4,344 points.

Both players, especially Iheanacho, have been impressive for the Foxes.

After being overlooked for selection, Iheanacho scored in his first Premier League game of the season, in a 2-1 win against Everton.

He has gone on to score two goals in three league appearances, bagging two assists.

For Ndidi, he has been ever-present for Leicester this season, making 16 Premier League appearances scoring two goals.

At number one is Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne who was at his stellar best during a 3-0 win at Arsenal, scoring two goals and setting up Raheem Sterling for his side’s other goal.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane topped the chart last week but tumbled into second spot this week after a goalless return in their 2-1 win at Wolverhampton, while Dele Alli, at number seven also slipped after a three-week ascent in form.

Team-mate Lucas Moura who is at number five on the list, broke the deadlock before Adama Traore, at number eight hit a sensational equalizer, but fourth-placed Jan Vertonghen headed home a stoppage-time winner to secure three points for Jose Mourinho’s side.

Crystal Palace stopper Vicente Guaita (No 3) surged up the chart after making nine saves in a 1-1 draw with Brighton, off the back of three successive clean sheets.

Each week top-performing players in the Premier League are listed. These Power Rankings are based on points awarded to players for 35 different statistics – from goals and assists, to blocks and tackles.

Goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards receive a different number of points for certain achievements – for instance, a defender is awarded more points than a forward for scoring a goal.

Online, the standings will take into account the number of Power Ranking points a player has earned over the past five matchdays, with each previous game worth 20 per cent fewer points in incremental deductions.
