Messi tops Player Power Rankings; Balotelli and Mbappe also feature

ESPN FC's worldwide editorial desks nominate their top performers from the weekend's action. This week's No. 1 was a unanimous choice.

1. Lionel Messi | Barcelona

Why he's here: Scored a hat trick in the 5-0 win vs. Barcelona; all three of his shots on target found the net. He has five goals in his last two league games.

2. Ciro Immobile | Lazio

Why he's here: After netting Italy's midweek World Cup qualifying winner against Israel, Immobile scored three times in 10 minutes as Lazio thrashed Milan 4-1.

3. Gabriel Jesus | Man City

Why he's here: As his strike partnership with Sergio Aguero blossoms, Jesus helped himself to two goals against a Liverpool side reeling after Sadio Mane's red card.

4. Mario Balotelli | Nice

Why he's here: Balotelli's first goals of the Ligue 1 season -- a penalty and a close-range finish -- came in a fine 4-0 win against defending champions Monaco.

5. Danny Welbeck | Arsenal

Why he's here: Arsenal needed a win and Welbeck, starting up front ahead of Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez, was their catalyst with goals early in each half.

Lionel Messi was at his brilliant best as Barcelona consolidate top spot in La Liga.

6. Asier Illaramendi | Real Sociedad

Why he's here: La Real are the only team not named Barcelona to have won their opening three Liga games; two-goal Illaramendi inspired them vs. Deportivo.

7. Mark Uth | Hoffenheim

Why he's here: With two goals, Uth scored the goals that beat Bayern Munich; he has three in the league this season and also scored home and away vs. Liverpool.

8. Harry Kane | Tottenham

Why he's here: It's September, therefore Kane is scoring again. His first against Everton was his 100th for Spurs and his second wrapped up a comprehensive win. 

9. Kylian Mbappe | Paris Saint-Germain

Why he's here: On his PSG debut, Mbappe scored one and set up another in a 5-1 win at Metz. Neymar and Edinson Cavani contributed three of the other goals.

10. Christian Eriksen | Tottenham

Why he's here: The Danish midfielder was at the heart of his side's attacking threat at Everton and his first league goal of the season doubled Tottenham's lead

Also receiving votes: Edinson Cavani, Maxim Choupo-Moting, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Paulo Dybala, Pascal Gross, Ivan Perisic.
