Cristiano Ronaldo returned to top spot in The Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League, after helping Manchester United to a vital victory at bottom-of-the-table Derby County.
The Portugal international, 23, posted 32 points as his solitary 75th-minute strike put United top of the table, where they stayed following Arsenal`s 1-1 draw at home to Middlesbrough.
Ronaldo, who moved one point clear of Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor with 571 points, also boasts the highest average score of the season in the index with 23 points per game.
The winger, named in the team of the week, is one of three United players in the top 10 with Carlos Tevez (464 points) in seventh and Rio Ferdinand in 10th with 449 points.
