Arsenal star makes Actim charge

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has made a late surge in his bid to be crowned the top man in the Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League.

Adebayor helped himself to a hat-trick in Monday night's 6-2 defeat of relegated Derby - earning him 63 points - to cut the gap on overall Index leader Cristiano Ronaldo to 57 points.

It was Adebayor's second treble of the season against the Rams, scoring 56 points in the reverse fixture at Emirates Stadium back in September.

Ronaldo remains top with 755 points but the highest score of the week has left the Togo international with everything to play for.

Fellow Gunner Gael Clichy also enjoyed his night at Pride Park, his 39-point haul the best from a defender for the week.

Analysis of all Premier League games is taking place throughout the season and the players in the Actim Index Team of the Week are:

Name Team Position Weekly Score

Brad Friedel, Blackburn Rovers, Goalkeeper, 18
Gael Clichy, Arsenal, Defender, 39
Danny Higginbotham, Sunderland, Defender, 32
Emmanuel Eboue, Arsenal, Defender, 27
Dany Collins, Sunderland, Defender, 23
Danny Murphy, Fulham, Midfielder, 47
Michael Ballack, Chelsea, Midfielder, 38
Mark Noble, West Ham United, Midfielder, 30
Geremi, Newcastle United, Midfielder, 28
Emmanuel Adebayor, Arsenal, Striker, 63
Diomansy Kamara, Fulham, Striker, 40

The Actim Index is calculated using a unique mathematical formula that rates each player`s contribution be it goals, shots, passes, dribbles, tackles, crosses, saves, clearances, blocks, interceptions, assists, clean sheets, time on the pitch or number of points gained by the team with marks deducted for red and yellow cards.

looks like the only reason Eboue got on is because he was rated vs. other midfielders.
